count master data COMBINATION in query designer only one time...

Hi Members,

I create a query with characteristics A, B , C, D and a counter key figure Kf in cube for every record.

For the 3 first characteristics i want to count only one time every data combination, event if they exist many times.

How can i realize this (for example with calculated key figure)? (This has to be like COUNT DISTINCT, but in Query designer)

Many thanks for helping.

Kind reagrds

    You need two keyFigures. In Report show only A,B,C with KF1 (normal count). In 2nd KF2 you can use the count in combination with exception aggregation in D.

    • Hi Christian,

      It is looking like the the KFI does not aggregate and counts each combination A B C one time, this means works like DISTINCT COUNT.

      If this is true, that will be the answer to my problem, where i want to count only one time (DISTINCT COUNT) every combination and aggregate, when i select in the report only column A, or columns A B.

      May be you can confirm whether this is the right result.

      Many thanks

      Kind regards
