@MINSRANGE

Returns the minimum value of mbrName across XrangeList, with options to skip missing or zero values.

Syntax

@MINSRANGE (SKIPNONE | SKIPMISSING | SKIPZERO | SKIPBOTH, mbrName [,XrangeList])
Parameter Description

SKIPNONE

Includes in the operation all specified cells regardless of their content

SKIPMISSING

Ignores all #MISSING values

SKIPZERO

Ignores all 0 values

SKIPBOTH

Ignores all 0 and #MISSING values

mbrName

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

XrangeList

Optional. A valid member name, a comma-delimited list of member names, cross dimension members, or a member set function or range function (including @XRANGE) that returns a list of members from the same dimension. If XrangeList is not specified, Essbase uses the level 0 members from the dimension tagged as Time.

Notes

  • @MINSRANGE enables skipping of #MISSING and 0 values, in contrast with the @MINRANGE function, which always includes these values in the calculation.

  • @MINSRANGE (SKIPNONE, mbrName, rangeList) is equivalent to @MINRANGE (mbrName, rangeList).

  • #MISSING values are considered to be less than positive data values and more than negative data values. If the data being calculated includes only positive and #MISSING values, @MINSRANGE returns #MISSING.

  • For all members, @MINSRANGE returns the value calculated for the specified member and range list.

Example

For both examples, assume a database similar to Sample Basic. The Measures dimension includes two members: COGS (cost of goods sold) and OtherInc_Exp (miscellaneous income and expenses). The data can include 0 and #MISSING values. For both members of the Measures dimension, the result is the same--the minimum value for the OtherInc_Exp member across the specified range.

Example 1

Qtr1_Min = @MINSRANGE(SKIPBOTH, OtherInc_Exp, Jan:Mar);

This example ignores the 0 value for Mar and produces the following results:

                   Jan       Feb       Mar  Qtr1_Min
              ========  ========  ========  ========
COGS          #MISSING      1500      2300       350
OtherInc_Exp       500       350         0       350 

Example 2

Qtr1_Min = @MINS(SKIPNONE, OtherInc_Exp, Jan:Mar);

This example does not ignore the 0 value in the calculation. This example produces the following results:

                   Jan       Feb       Mar  Qtr1_Min
              ========  ========  ========  ======== 
COGS          #MISSING      1500      2300         0 
OtherInc_Exp       500       350         0         0
