Description on calculated measures


To get a description on a calculated measure you either install BIDS helper and follow this little guide or you do the following.

In the XML code for the cube find the tag <CalculationProperties>. Inside this tag it should look something like:

        <CalculationProperty dwd:design-time-name="b85f38de-e526-4e67-89ba-8a399e0572b1">
            <Translation dwd:design-time-name="a2d45a9d-8213-4d44-9db6-511a97efb363">
              <Caption>Porcentaje de Descuento</Caption>
          <Description>Measure Description Here</Description>


If the measure isn’t there you will have to do some magic. Create a translation for the measure; this puts the measure in the XML then when you have made the XML to look like above you remove the translation again.
