This hotfix also applies to Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Analysis Services (SSAS 2014).


Consider the following scenario:

  • You define a SCOPE statement, and you give an assignment to the┬áSCOPE statement in Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services (SSAS 2012), SSAS 2008 R2, or SSAS 2014.

  • You run a ClearCache command to clear caches.

  • You run a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) query.

In this scenario, the assignment is deleted, and a NULL value is returned for the assignment.

Each new cumulative update for SQL Server contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous cumulative update. Check out the latest cumulative updates for SQL Server:
