SYMPTOMS

You can define a calculated member by using a formula that references the set of an axis in the current query as part of the formula. However, if you define a calculated member this way, the value of the calculated member may return incorrect results.

For example, the first query that uses the calculated member returns correct values. However, later queries may reflect the same values that are returned by the first query.

For example, the following expression changes the denominator of the calculation if the Store dimension is in the columns axis of the current query:
IIF (NOT( IsError(intersect( {[Store].[All Stores]}, strtoset("axis(0)") ).count)), 
--Store is on the columns axis of the query; use the current member (default).
([Measures].[Unit Sales]/
( [Customers].[All Customers],
[Product].[All Products],
[Measures].[Unit Sales] )
),
--Else use the ALL level of the Store dimension.
([Measures].[Unit Sales]/
([Store].[All Stores], 
[Customers].[All Customers],
[Product].[All Products],
[Measures].[Unit Sales])
)
)

CAUSE

To optimize performance for calculations, the Analysis Services OLE DB for OLAP provider uses a cache for calculation results. Later, the cached result is used for calculations that are referenced multiple times. In the earlier example, the results of the intersect function are cached. This behavior causes the calculated member to use an incorrect formula.
