SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You use PerformancePoint Services for SharePoint Server 2010 to connect to Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services (SSAS 2008 R2).
  • You create an analytic grid in PerformancePoint Dashboard Designer. You add a measure and a dimension to the analytic grid. The dimension contains more than one member.
  • You apply a Top 10 filter or a user-specified value filter to the analytic grid. 

    Note A Multidimensional expression (MDX) query is generated in PerformancePoint Services when you apply the filter.
In this scenario, either incorrect data or the following message is displayed in the analytic grid: 
There is no data to display

CAUSE

This issue occurs because the MDX query contains a call to the Descendants function that passes a single-tuple set as the only parameter. However, the Descendants function is incorrectly defined to handle the parameter.
