MDX Cookbook

Hi all,

if you’ve been wondering where have I been hiding all these months, the answer is here – I was writing a book for Packt Publishing Ltd. The book, named MDX with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Service: Cookbook, is finally out and available on publisher’s site. Soon, it should be available on Amazon and in other popular book stores.

For those of you who prefer the e-book over the paperback edition, it’s good to know that the PDF version already exists on publisher’s site, while the ePub and Mobi are coming soon. Same is with the Kindle Edition on Amazon.

UPDATE (27th of August): On Amazon US, the paperback edition is available here, the Kindle edition here.

Looking forward to receiving your feedback :-)

  1. I have this book for over a month now (EBook) and I can say that is really great. I also wrote a recommendation about it on my company’s blog: See here (German only):

    Great work!

  5. Very good book. I can not do my project without it.
    I am trying to copy the Time Cal example in chapter 6. I have an issue with percentage format of [YTD Year ago %]
    It seems format_string(this) = ‘Percent’ in all calculation does not work for me. for example 100% increase, it shows $1.00. it always has $ sign.
    I am use sql 2012 release. My script is just very simple as follow
    {[Time Calcs].[Calc].&[4]} * { [Measures].[Sales Amount USD], [Measures].[Gross Margin USD] }

    what I may have done wrong?

    Thank you in advence.

  6. Hi Tomislav,
    I left my review on the book on amazon. Hope more similar book on MDX coming!
