Returns all children of the specified member, excluding the specified member. This member set function can be used as a parameter of another function, where that parameter is a list of members.


@CHILDREN (mbrName)


Any valid single member name or member combination, or a function that returns a single member or member combination.


Essbase sorts the child members in ascending order. Using Sample Basic as an example, if you specify 100 for mbrName, Essbase returns 100-10, 100-20, 100-30 (in that order). This order is important to consider when you use the @CHILDREN member set function with certain forecasting and statistical functions.


In the Sample Basic database:


returns East, West, South, and Central (in that order).


returns Sales and COGS (in that order).
