FIX: Dimension Calculated Member Caption Blank If Dimension Uses Caption Type Member Property

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
If a member property is defined for a level in an Analysis Services dimension and the member property type is set to Caption, any calculated members created in the dimension for that level will have a blank caption value.

For example, if a member property is defined on the "customer"."state_province" column of the customer table for the State Province level of the Customers dimension in the Foodmart 2000 sample database, and the type of the property is set to Caption, the following query will return a row with a blank caption when it is run from the MDX sample application:

With Member [Customers].[All Customers].[USA].[Total] AS '[Customers].[All Customers].[USA].[CA] +[Customers].[All Customers].[USA].[WA] +[Customers].[All Customers].[USA].[OR] ' SELECT {[Measures].Members}ON COLUMNS, {[Customers].[All Customers].[USA].[Total]} ON ROWSFROM [Sales]
