order of operations

Share This

“From mathematics, calculations are performed in a standard sequence. For example, multiplication is performed before addition. The order can be altered through the use of parentheses. The order becomes critical when computing values using a hyper cube. For example, dividing or multiplying data columns using a calculation on a cube rarely does what you might expect. Subtotals are computed first followed by cube calculations. Computations must often be made within queries or named calculations to be executed at the row level instead of the cube level.”
