# Cummulative sum through drill down i Cubes

I am looking for a calculated menber in a OLAP Cube, where I can obtain a cummulative sum even though I drill up or down.

In normal base SAS I wil do:

data test;

by year;

base=0;

base +1 (or base plus cost or sales);

run;

Is that possible i a OLAP Cube, and what about drill up/down

## Cummulative sum through drill down i Cubes

What viewer are you using?  Most of the SAS OLAP viewers let you specify a total based upon all members or the members currently showing in the drill-down.

Not quite what i meant.

ex.

data test;

Var 1     var 2

2          2

4          6

3          9

8          17

2          19

Var 2 is the accumulated var 1

I want the OLAP to be able to calculate var 2. I can do that in a data step, but I don't know how to tell the cube to acumulate var 1 into var 2.
