This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
BUG #: 14240 (Plato7x)

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services 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 2000 Analysis Services fix release.
SYMPTOMS
A multidimensional expressions (MDX) query on a cube that contains a virtual dimension may return incorrect results after an incremental update has been performed on the base dimension that serves as the source for the virtual dimension. This problem occurs if the member property of the base dimension that serves as the source for the virtual dimension was updated during the incremental update on the base dimension.
