Distinct Count with text Data Type

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