Default Chapter 9 examples

Hi All,

I must have missed something here, but the chapter 9 examples just do not line up with the solution that has been built on in the previous chapters. The chapter 9 final solution that is supplied also does not line up with the examples.

Examples of what i mean are the screenshots and examples in the book that refer to and show dimensions 'Destination currency', 'Source Currency' and renamed + missing measure groups 'Exchange rates', 'Financial reporting' etc. which are not in the the solution. These dimensions and measure groups were never added in previous chapters.

Am i missing something here?

Cheers
Richard

Looks like chapter 9 in the book quite simply does not line up with the chapter 9 sample provided. Considering returning this book unless there is a logical explanation?

Anyone know of any alternative books that cover MDX / Multidimensional modelling?

Cheers
Richard

Default Chapter 9 Sample Project Inconsistancy

As I checked, chapter 9 is referring to sample project from 2008 version of the same book located at the following link. I tried the sample project and it was matching the book screenshots.
