BPC MS 7.5 MDX query return all nulls

Hi Everyone,

I am fairly confident with BPC, however I am fairly new to the analysis server side of things. I am trying to do a simple MDX query on a cube however it always returns NULL results. Also when explore the cube through the browser I get blanks for the result.

I have tried quite a few things

-Processed the application set

-Optimised the application set

-Manual Processed the cube and partition

-Changed the security

-Changed the aggregation method and designs

All with no luck. I know that there is data in the corresponding fact tables and when processing the cubes its says there is 63 K of rows read. I have also checked the measures and ensured the aggregation type is SUM.

I hope someone can help

    Hi Patrick,

    Yes its standard for SSAS cubes to do aggregation with out all dimensions, this is why I was thrown off by the BPC cube. The property IsAggregate was set to false for the last association in the association chain for a dimension. the default for cube is true. Turning all the dimensions to IsAggregate=True sets up proper aggregation.

    Thanks again for your help,

    Hi Cameron,

    Not sure to really understand your point, but from where are you browsing the cube in SSAS?

    Do you use the "Browse" link, when right-clicking on a specific one?

    If yes, here you have to drag&drop particular dimensions either in rows, columns (for example account and time), and also use the section above the result grid to filter any other dimensions (for example category, rptcurrency, entity, ....)

    After defining every dimensions, then, drag&drop "Measures" in the data section, and you then should be able to see some aggregated data in the result table.

    Hope it will help.

    Kind Regards,
