FIX: Incorrect result of a calculated member that references another calculated member if the referenced calculated member is used in a Filter function in SSAS 2008 R2

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 R2 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario:
  • You install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services (SSAS 2008 R2) on a computer.
  • You define a calculated member that references another calculated member. This referenced calculated member is used in a Filter function of a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) query. 
  • You run this MDX query.
In this scenario, the MDX query returns an incorrect result for the calculated member that you defined.
