ContextMember (MDX+)

Returns the context member of a hierarchy including the Subquery content


Name Type Cardinality Default value
  hierarchy-expression  zero-one   




Allows to retrieve information about hierarchy members in the current context. This function is a slight modification from the 'standard' currentMember function.

The context is defined as following:

1) the calculated member's tuple context ( e.g ( [Time].[2010], [Measures].[Year Diff.] ) )
2) the tuple being iterated (e.g., Sum,(), ...). Note Eval() function has no current tuple.
3) the cell tuples from the axes being evaluated.
4) the slicer content.
5) the subSelect content.
6) the default members.

As a difference to the currentMember function, the contextMember will not work across hierarchies and will
use the subQuery definition.
