Bug #: 50002586 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. In Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services, you run a Multidimensional Expressions (MDX) query that contains a calculated member in a WHERE clause. The calculated member uses the Aggregate function on a named set. In this scenario, the MDX query may return the incorrect result when you run the MDX query.

RESOLUTION

The fix for this issue was first released in Cumulative Update 7. For more information about how to obtain this cumulative update package for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
949095  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/949095/LN/ ) Cumulative update package 7 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2
Note Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release. Microsoft recommends that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 hotfixes are created for specific SQL Server service packs. You must apply a SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 hotfix to an installation of SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2. By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

MORE INFORMATION

Critical information for SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services

A known issue in Cumulative Update 7 for SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services

Consider the following scenario. You install Cumulative Update 7 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (SP2). In SQL Server Profiler, you start or stop a trace. You run a query whose execution time exceeds the value in the ForceCommitTimeout server setting. In this scenario, all the running queries on the server are cancelled.

To work around this issue, do not execute MDX queries before you start or stop a trace.

Steps to reproduce the problem

  1. Start SQL Server Management Studio, and then connect to an instance of Analysis Services that has the AdventureWorks sample database installed.
  2. To open an MDX query window, right-click Adventure Works DW, point to New Query, and then click MDX.
  3. In the MDX query window, paste the following MDX statement, and then click Execute.
    WITH 
    MEMBER [Date].[Calendar].[Span] AS 'AGGREGATE(DateSet)' 
    SET DateSet AS '{[Date].[Calendar].[Date].&[185]:[Date].[Calendar].[Date].&[549]}' 
    SELECT 
    {measures.[Order Count]} ON COLUMNS, 
    NON EMPTY {[Product].[Product Categories].[Category].&[1]} ON ROWS 
    FROM [Adventure Works] 
    WHERE ([Date].[Calendar].[Span],[Organization].[Organizations].&[4])
    
    The MDX query returns the incorrect order count. The MDX query returns 18,282. However, the correct result is 3,451.
