If a Multidimensional Expression (MDX) contains a WHERE
clause (slice) on a virtual dimension, and the cube in the query contains more
than one partition, the results of the MDX query may not be correct.
This problem occurs because Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services does not correctly filter the partitions when it uses a virtual dimension in the WHERE clause of the MDX statement. Analysis Services filters
the partitions based on the member from the master dimension of the virtual
dimension and returns results that are not correct.
