For the last two days I've been battling with a measure group in one of my cubes and an external report not matching up. Redundant reporting you bet, but different users use different reporting interfaces. Either way, numbers were not matching up. Actually from the outward appearance the totals for the affected measure group never changed over the last 5 days which is well just flat wrong, not only do they get processed at night but get processed by a job that I setup just for this issue.

Now, when I tear into the numbers by SKU they all match up perfectly, it was the rollup that was causing the issue. For the life of me I was going nuts. It just didn't make any sense. To make matters worse, my co-worker who knows all the data structures is no longer with the company (a contractor who's contract was up). I do have his email address and asked him for help, but based on what I was seeing and the numbers it just didn't make any sense to either one of us.

So tonight I setup down time for the cubes so I could play with them at my will. First thing I did was exclude SKUs that didn't have a certain value, process the cube and go number crunching. Suddenly everything was in alignment!!! Excluding Zeros caused the rollups to work correctly. WTF? I don't get, perhaps I'm not suppose to but it now works.

Oh and in case you're wondering, no the SSRS report doesn't exclude the zero values. It uses about the exact same logic (so much so I pulled that out to do number matching the other day)

On to the next challenge...


Common sense is admitting there is cause and effect and that you can exert some control over what you understand.
