Named set

13 Feb 20193 minutes to read

Named set is a multidimensional expression (MDX) that returns a set of dimension members, which can be created by combining the cube data, arithmetic operators, numbers, and functions. You can set the named set option in the pivot client by setting the isNamedSets property to true for client mode.

Client mode

You can bind the named sets in the pivot client by setting it’s unique name in the fieldName property either in row or column axis and isNamedSets Boolean property to true.

  • JS
  • <!--Create a tag which acts as a container for PivotGrid-->
     <div id="PivotClient1" style="height: 350px; width: 100%; overflow: auto"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        $(function() {
                dataSource: {
                    data: "", //data
                    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"

    Server mode

    You can add the named sets in the pivot client by using the NamedSetElement Class in the OLAP report.

  • 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";
