MDX error with calculated measure in calculation view


I tied to define a calculation view for a virtual cube which joins two cubes (SALES and INVENTORY). I created a calculation view, added the two analytic views to it for the two cubes, then union the two analytic views for the output. I defined a calculated measure TOTAL_INVENTORY which based on the measures of the other two views (SALES. SALES_VOLUME + INVENTORY. IN_STOCK_VOLUME).

I could validate, active, get data preview of this calculation view successfully. I could run MDX query against basic measures. But I would get the error below for MDX that queries the calculated measure.


SELECT {[Measures].[TOTAL_INVENTORY]} on columns


SAP DBTech JDBC: [256] (at 1381256773): sql processing error: Error occurred while executing a MDX statement. The error message is: An internal error occurred. Assertion failed with error message Can't read entity info for [Measure: [Measures].[TOTAL_INVENTORY]]

Any ideas about what this error means? How to fix it? Is it the right way for me to use calculation view for the virtual cube?
