ASO Rates Doubt

Hi everyone!


I'm working in an ASO cube in Essbase. My cube is composed by 15 dimensions and I need to calculate productivity (Sales / Quantity Employees). Both are accounts and the calculation is a simple division. My issue is that as long that I'm working with ASO, the number of employees is consolidated in top levels.


My dimensions are:


Products (5 levels)

Packages (3 levels)

Combos (4 levels)

Clients (4 levels)

Type of Clients (3 levels)

Geography (3 levels)


What is happening? I have a level 0 data (2,000) and I assigned a "1" to the employee A in product X, besides I have the employee A with sales (3,000) in product Y assigned with a "1".

Emp1 -> X = 2,000      1

Emp1 -> Y = 3,000      1

When I see the sum of product for employee A the sales are equal to 5,000, that it is correct. But in the case the quantity of employees is "2" but I want to see a "1" as long as it is still employee A.

This is happening in all the possible combinations, and I don't know if its possible to formulate a member in order to count the unique employees in all possible combinations (like a NonEmpotyCount but I'm not familiar to MDX)

I appreciate your help,
