List all cubes’ Dimensions, Hierarchies and Current Members

leave a comment »

I needed to list all dimensions and their current members to see the overall picture of my cube context and autoexists behavior. I used Chris Webb’s query, but strangely enough, it was running longer than expected. So, here is my version of it that shows me all info that I need.



member [Dim Rank] as rank([Customer].[Customer].CurrentMember,

                          [Customer].[Customer].Members) – 1

member [Dimension Name] as dimensions([Dim Rank]).Dimension_Unique_Name

member [Hierarchy Name] as dimensions([Dim Rank]).UniqueName

member [Current Member Name] as dimensions([Dim Rank]).CurrentMember.UniqueName


select {[Dim Rank], [Dimension Name], [Hierarchy Name], [Current Member Name]} on 0,

head([Customer].[Customer].Members, dimensions.count) on 1

from [Adventure Works]


where [Date].[Fiscal Year].&[2002]


Here is the result of the query
