Requirement: to use the a member Key in a report rather than the display name or Value properties.
Problem the SSRS query builder doesn’t allow selection of properties to return. Reference to Fields!MemberName.Key returns Null in reports.
One Solution: Locate following snippet in SSRS-Generated MDX (using the fx button on Dataset properties dialog)
...me].[Typecodename].ALLMEMBERS ) } DIMENSION PROPERTIES MEMBER_CAPTION, MEMBER_UNIQUE_NAME ON ROWS FROM...
and add “, MEMBER_KEY”
...me].[Typecodename].ALLMEMBERS ) } DIMENSION PROPERTIES MEMBER_CAPTION, MEMBER_UNIQUE_NAME, MEMBER_KEY ON ROWS FROM...
Effect on Query Builder: the query builder still works but using it will remove the added MEMBER_KEY so it has to be re-added manually. The risk is that this will be overlooked, so you need to ensure missing this causes noticeable error.
A better solution is to have an additional dimension member that returns the required Value or Name property.
