BUG #: 14158 (Plato7x)
When a calculated member is defined by using the NonEmptyCrossjoin function, queries that involve the calculated member may incorrectly return an empty result set. This problem occurs when the following conditions are true:
One of the axes in the query contains only the calculated member and no base members.
The calculated member does not invoke a set traversal function (such as SUM, MIN, MAX, AGGREGATE, FILTER, ORDER, or GENERATE) on members of the dimension where the calculated member is defined.
No other calculation in the query invokes a set traversal function on members of the dimension where the calculated member is defined.
There are one or more additional calculations in the query that uses either the NonEmptyCrossjoin function or the DistinctCount function, and the calculation is applied before the calculated member definition.
