    Can anyone help me?
    How can i create measures (with text data type) in my cubes with DistinctCount aggregate function?

    Cause there is only Sum, min, max, and count in aggregate function properties.

    Thanks before for all your help.

    Best regards,

    well, in cubes, you have aggrigate functions. what do you want to with test fileds. AFAIK, you can have dimensions with text fileds.

    Thanks for your reply dine [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br /><br />I need to count our Aktive customer.<br /><br />So i must create Customer_ID as a measure with distinctcount on aggregate function.<br />But when i wan to change aggregate function properties, there is only Sum, min, max, and count. Looks like its all because my Customer_ID field is text.<br /><br />Do you know how to change measures properties (aggregate function) into distinctcount?<br />or <br />Can u tell me how to create a measurement to count my Aktiv Customer?
