OLAP - Calculating Minimum Measure if NULL is present

Hi there,

I am trying to make an OLAP cube on a table having two columns (datetime,
Number_of_times _an_event_occur ed).
My dimension is time and I want to measure the Min and Max times an event
occured over time.

I have no problem in calculating Maximum occurance of events over time.
However, I have some NULL values in my Number_of_times _an_event_occur ed
column, due to which I don't see any result when I try to calculate
Minimums.

If I do a "select MIN(Number_of_t imes_an_event_o ccured) from Table1", I see
correct results. I read that Analysis Service treats NULL as 0 if there is
any other numeric (non-NULL) field present. However, for calculating my
Minimum Value, I need to ignore these NULL values and have my Min-Max
calculation on the rest of the data.

Could someone explain me this anamoly and how I can see the correct Minimum?

TIA.

Hello, If I wrote the next ebay (yes I know, yawn-snore) and I had a database with 5 million auction items in it, what would be a really good strategy to get a search done very quickly? Would it involve something called OLAP and/or "data mining"? The only technology I am familiar with is simply SQL Server databases with stored procedures. I think I'd be guessing correctly and say that this technology simply wouldn't be fast enough *on...

I use C# to invoke DTS. The DTS run successfully if no process cube function in it. But after i add process cube function, the ASP.NET page hang. I even impersonate ASP.NET to an account with OLAP Administrator and System administrator. it jus hang there. So what is the problem I'm having? It is working fine when no processing OLAP command in it. Package2Class package = new Package2Class();

After a brief search, I didn't find any python package related to OLAP and pivot tables. Did I miss anything ? To be more precise, I'm not so interested in a full-blown OLAP server with an RDBMS backend, but rather a pythonic API for constructing datacubes in memory, slicing and dicing them, drilling down or up dimensions and exposing them in some suitable form to a presentation layer. I've hacked a first cut of a pivot table...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".
