    Can anyone please suggest me how to write the standard deviation(stdev) function in MDX . I am stucked into that very badly. The function requires one dimension and one measure . I am using Time dimension in dimension parameter and 'Depositors' as a measure. when I run this in browser it gives the same value througout the time values.
    I need it very urgently .

    You can use stdev function which takes a SET and numeric expression.
    It Returns the sample standard deviation of a numeric expression evaluated over the set,.

    Hi, Ranjit
    Thanks a lot for your Quick reply. Sorry forgot to mension that i have already tried this formula in MDX hundreds of time. But not gettig the correct value . I m using the formula in this way.

    Stddev (


    {[Time].[Time_Key].ALLMEMBERS},{[Measures].[Deposit Amount - Transaction]})


    I used time dimension as a Set and Deposit amount as a measure which is field of one fact table.

    The structure of this table is

    Time_Key intUnchecked (Key)
    User_Key intUnchecked (Key)
    Tracking_Code_KeyintUnchecked (Key)
    Marketing_Agent_KeyintUnchecked (Key)
    Local_Campaign_KeyintUnchecked (Key)
    Global_Campaign_KeyintUnchecked (Key)
    Channel_Key intUnchecked (Key)
    Transaction_ID bigintUnchecked
    Deposit_Amountdecimal(18, 4)Unchecked

    Now I dont know whether i have to include all the key columns to get the correct value. I tried lots of ways but didnt get the sucess . I need the help urgently. Please help me.
