Local Member based on a Dimension Property

Hi BPC Experts,

I've been reading the documentation for Local Members, but I can't figure out how to create a Local Member based on a property of a Dimension. For example, I want to create a total for the displayed members in a report of the FSITEM dimension, but only the non calculated ones. So it would be something like a local member, based on a dimension(FSITEM) and the formula would be like this


I tried to create a new colum based on this property(this would be a new local member):


And then create a calculated member for the Total sum of this column.. but it doesnt work at all.... any ideas?

    This is just a shot in the dark but I can't visualize the report that you are trying to create. It sounds like you are having issues with the parents being double counted. Can you use the hierarchy to give you the total or are there base members that you are trying to ignore? Second question, have you tried creating a localmember formula with the below option checked in Sheet options:

    Click on Apply to row as Priority and then the Sum will be calculated.
