FIX: Additional data columns for ascendant members are returned unexpectedly when you run an MDX statement against an instance of SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services that has SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 installed

Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ends on April 12, 2016

If you are still running SQL Server 2005 after April 12, 2016, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2014 and Azure SQL Database to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure. Learn more about the options for upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to a supported version here.

SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario. You have a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) statement that uses the DIMENSION PROPERTIES keyword to retrieve member properties. You run the MDX statement against an instance of Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services that has Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (SP2) installed. The MDX statement returns the result in a flattened rowset. In this scenario, additional data columns for ascendant members are returned unexpectedly.
