1.0 out of 5 stars There are better books about on MDX, 3 Sept. 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fast Track to MDX (Paperback)
Bought this book thinking that it was going to supplement the information in 'MDX Solutions' by George Spofford and I was seriously disappointed.
I was expecting the definitive book given who the authors are and this is not the case.
It has some significant gaps such as how you would use MDX to define calculations within a cube, how the calculations interact and there is no function reference section.
Connection parameters which can govern a lot of what you see from the front end are not covered. Infact, this is not really a reference book and I could not imagine picking it up having read it once (if I ever got to the end of it).
This is the 'ladybird book of MDX' and is not something which will assist a Developer / DBA as it says in the blurb.
If you really want it buy a used copy - It may be mine !
