Bubble-up Exceptions in SSAS KPIs

A requirement to see, at a summarized level, how many exceptions appear at lower points in a hierarchy is a pretty common OLAP scenario, known as ‘bubble-up exceptions’. ProClarity’s KPI Selector did a great job of defining these, but when it’s not available, you can define them as a SSAS KPI. An example from AdventureWorks showing how many products there are with below 37% GPM (paste into the Value Expression in BIDS):

      (
        Descendants
        (
          [Product].[Product Categories].CurrentMember,
          [Product].[Product Categories].[Product]
        ),
        
            (
              [Measures].[Internet Gross Profit Margin],
              [Product].[Product Categories].CurrentMember
            )
          > 0
        AND 
            (
              [Measures].[Internet Gross Profit Margin],
              [Product].[Product Categories].CurrentMember
            )
          < 0.37
      )
    )

      ),
      
          (
            [Measures].[Internet Gross Profit Margin],
            [Product].[Product Categories].CurrentMember
          )
        > 0
      AND 
          (
            [Measures].[Internet Gross Profit Margin],
            [Product].[Product Categories].CurrentMember
          )
        < 0.37
    )
  ),
  NULL
)
