Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) is a query language for OLAP databases, much like SQL is a query language for relational databases. It is also a calculation language, with syntax similar to spreadsheet formulas.

Instant MDX Queries for SQL Server 2012 helps readers understand the MDX query language by writing MDX queries that would not only display data from cubes, but also display the results in Management Studio or in a Reporting Services report.

Written in a step-by-step approach, this book enables readers to use this guide as a reference for how to use functions and the syntax of a query, as well as how to use calculated members and named sets to reuse codes. MDX functions will also help users filter, order, and combine results.

Packt Publishing has also released the following Microsoft SQL Server books:

Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Master Data Services (Published)

Instant Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services 2012 Dimensions and Cube (Published)

MDX with Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Analysis Services Cookbook (Published)
