Named Sets

28 Jun 20174 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 PivotTreeMap by setting it’s unique name in the fieldName property either in row or column axis and isNamedSets boolean property to “true”.

    You can add Named Sets in the PivotTreeMap by using NamedSetElement class in the OlapReport.

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