  • Hi,
    could some help me on the MDX syntax for below problem

    something like
    [TopicDim].[Topic Hierarchy].[Topic].&[Finance].children,
    [TopicDim].[Topic Hierarchy].[Topic].&[Marketing].children

  • If you want to include the Finance and Marketing topics and their subtopics it would look something like this:

    DESCENDANTS({[TopicDim].[Topic Hierarchy].[Topic].&[Finance],
    [TopicDim].[Topic Hierarchy].[Topic].&[Marketing]},
    [TopicDim].[Topic Hierarchy].[Subtopics],
