    Hi Thr,

    There is a nice technique which is used to convert 0 to #Missing.
    If we have many blocks in the cube which are 0 and we want to convert them into #missing so that we can use Clear Empty block to remove unnecessary blocks.

    member = member * member / member;

    it will make 0 #missing;

    then clear empty block.

    I remember reading Edward Roske's post on this a while back:

    Interestingly, you will note that multiply and divide process was slower than an IF test. Every database is different, and benchmarking is a really, really good idea.
