@RSIBLINGS

Returns the right siblings of the specified member.

Syntax

@RSIBLINGS (mbrName)
Parameter Description

mbrName

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

Notes

This function returns all of the right siblings of the specified member. Right siblings are children that share the same parent as the member and that follow the member in the database outline. This function excludes the specified member.

This member set function can be used as a parameter of another function, where that parameter is a list of members.

Essbase sorts the right siblings in ascending order. Using Sample Basic as an example, if you specify 200-10 for mbrName, Essbase returns 200-20, 200-30, 200-40 (in that order). This order is important to consider when you use the @RSIBLINGS member set function with certain forecasting and statistical functions.

Example

In the Sample Basic database:

@RSIBLINGS(Florida)

returns Connecticut and New Hampshire (in that order). These members appear below Florida in the Sample Basic outline.

@RSIBLINGS(Sales)

returns COGS because this member appears below Sales in the Sample Basic outline.
