Named Sets

28 Jun 20173 minutes to read

Named sets is a multidimensional expression (MDX) that returns a set of dimension members, which can be created by combining cube data, arithmetic operators, numbers and functions.

Client Mode

You can bind the Named Sets in PivotGrid by setting it’s unique name in the fieldName property either in row or column axis and isNamedSets boolean property to “true”.

  • HTML
  • <div ng-controller="PivotGridCtrl">
        <div id="PivotGrid1" ej-pivotgrid e-datasource="datasource" />
        angular.module("PivotGridApp",["ejangular"]).controller('PivotGridCtrl', function ($scope) {
            $scope.dataSource = {
                data: "", //data source
                catalog: "Adventure Works DW 2008 SE",
                cube: "Adventure Works",
                rows: [{
                    fieldName: "[Date].[Fiscal]"
                columns: [{
                    fieldName: "[Core Product Group]",
                    isNamedSets: true
                values: [{
                    measures: [{
                        fieldName: "[Measures].[Internet Sales Amount]",
                    axis: "columns"
            $scope.datasource = $scope.dataSource;

    Server Mode

    You can add Named Sets in the PivotGrid by using NamedSetElement Class in the OlapReport.

  • C#
  • OlapReport olapReport = new OlapReport();
    olapReport.Name = "Customer Report";
    olapReport.CurrentCubeName = "Adventure Works";
    DimensionElement dimensionElementRow = new DimensionElement();
    dimensionElementRow.Name = "Date";
    dimensionElementRow.AddLevel("Fiscal", "Fiscal Year");
    MeasureElements measureElementColumn = new MeasureElements();
    measureElementColumn.Elements.Add(new MeasureElement {
    Name = "Internet Sales Amount"
    NamedSetElement dimensionElementColumn = new NamedSetElement();
    dimensionElementColumn.Name = "Core Product Group";
