EazyBI - How to filter so I only see a subset of a dimension

I'm just getting started with EazyBI. I've created a report which uses labels as a Dimension. This works fine. However, I want to limit the reported dimension to only include labels that start with the characters D1.

I assume I need to use a calculated member with the filter function to do this, but need a pointer on how to do so.

Thank you.

If you only want to filter out these label members (without showing totals), you can click on one of the Label names and add "Filter by name" matches: ^D1
This will leave only labels that start with D1. See documentation about using regular expressions (^ symbol to indicate that name has to start with "D1").

Another option is to create a group of labels that start with D1 in Label dimension calculated members. Formula for that would be

      Descendants([Label].CurrentMember, [Label].[Label]),
    [Label].CurrentMember.Name MATCHES '^D1.*'), 
  [Label].[Label].CurrentMember )

This will also return sum of measures for all labels that start with D1.

Kind regards,

Perfect. MDX will soon be my friend.

I would like to do something similar. Instead of filter label names that start with "D1", I would like to create a calculated member that filter by multiple labels. This means that I would like to get a single count of tickets that has specific multiple labels associated with the ticket. How do I define the formula? Thanks!

David, did you ever come to a solution regarding this?
