MDX Training Part 1

What you’ll learn

Participant will be able to write basic MDX scripts by himself or herself and will feel more confident on MDX queries. Participant will understand the rules to write MDX queries . If the participant is working in a company where MDX scripts are prewritten then participants will be able to understand those scripts after learning this course.

MDX Training Part 1


Participant should have basic knowledge of Relational Database Management Systems (RDBMS), Primary Key (P.K) and Foreign Key (F.K) for the better understanding of the course .


The full form of MDX is Multi Dimensional eXpression. This is used to query OLAP cube. It means you can select or retrieve the data from OLAP cube using MDX . In this course i have used SQL Server Analysis Services technology to fetch the data using MDX queries.
To make it more clear i can say , we write SQL commands to select the data from the database . In the same way we write MDX queries to select the data from OLAP cube.
In this online MDX Training video Course, following are the course contents which are covered
•Structure of the cube
•How MDX Queries Fetch the data from the cube
•How to create a basic cube
•What is the purpose of Hierarchy
•How to create hierarchies
•How to modify the existing cube
•Terminologies – Children,Member and Level
•Set – { }
•Tuple – ( )
•Default measure
•Filter condition
•Having condition
•Where condition
•Difference between where and having condition in MDX
•Calculated Member
•Named set
•Query scoped and Session scoped Calculated Member
•Query scoped and Session scoped Namedset

In this MDX video tutorial ,quiz, lab exercises  and  demonstration exercises are also included. With all these practice activities participant will feel more confident and will be able to write basic MDX scripts by himself or herself. If participant is working in a company where MDX scripts are prewritten then participants will be able to understand those scripts after learning this course.

But i will not stop only to this course , very soon i will release MDX Part 2 which will have advanced MDX queries and functions . After that course participant will be able to write complex MDX commands and feel more confident in writing MDX commands.
