The report contains financial data. An input parameter named TargetMfr is present in the report. When a value in the Machine_Mfr field matches the selected value in the input parameter, the color of the output in a column is red. Otherwise, the color of the output is green. You need to set the TextBox that contains the color property of the Machine_Mfr field to the appropriate expression. Which expression should you use?A.=Iif(Fields!Machine_Mfr = Parameters!rc:TargetMfr.Value,"Red","Green")B.=Iif(Fields!Machine_Mfr.Value = Parameters!TargetMfr.Value,"Red","Green")C.=Iif(InScope(Machine_Mfr),"Red","Green")D.=Iif(InScope(TargetMfr),"Red","Green")Correct:B 25.You are designing a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Reporting Services (SSRS) report. The query that builds the dataset for the report uses a WHERE clause to filter the rows. The report parameter must perform the following actions: Use the new parameterized query. Run without any user input. Allow users to change the value that is passed to the query by selecting a value from a drop-down list. You need to modify the settings of the Report Properties dialog box to meet the outlined requirements. Which four tasks should you perform? (Each correct answer presents part of the solution. Choose four.)A.Ensure that the Internal check box is selected.B.Ensure that the Default values property value is set to Null.C.Ensure that the Prompt property is set to an appropriate value.D.Ensure that the Data type property is set to an appropriate value.E.Ensure that the Default values property value is set to Non-queried by using an appropriate default value.F.Ensure that the Available values property value is set to Non-queried by using the appropriate labels and values.Correct:C D E F 26.You are developing a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) project. The project contains a cube named Finance. The Finance cube contains the following objects: A measure group named SalesMeasures. A measure named SalesAmount. A time dimension named DimTime. A time dimension hierarchy named Calendar that contains Year on the first level, Quarter on the second level, and Month on the third level. You need to create a trend expression that displays the increase and decrease in the SalesAmount measure for the current DimTime member, irrespective of the level of the Calendar hierarchy. Which expression should you use?A.Case When [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount]> [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar].PrevMember Then1 When [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount]< [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar].PrevMember Then -1 EndB.Case When [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar]< [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar].PrevMember Then1 When [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar]> [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar].PrevMember Then -1 EndC.Case When [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount]> [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar].NextMember Then1 When [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount]< [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar].NextMember Then -1 EndD.Case When [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount]< [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar].NextMember Then1 When [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount]> [SalesMeasures].[SalesAmount],[DimTime].[Calendar].NextMember Then -1 EndCorrect:A 27.You are developing a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) project. You create a cube that contains the following objects: A time dimension named Time that has an attribute named TimeKey. A fact table named FactOrders. The Time dimension contains different hierarchies. Two of the columns of the fact table link to the attribute. You need to view the measures for different hierarchies for both the columns in the fact table. What should you do?A.Create a single dimension usage relationship between the Time dimension and the FactOrders fact table by defining a regular relationship.B.Create a single dimension usage relationship between the Time dimension and the FactOrders fact table by defining a many-to-many relationship.C.Create two dimension usage relationships between the Time dimension and the FactOrders fact table by defining a regular relationship for both the dimension usages.D.Create two dimension usage relationships between the Time dimension and the FactOrders fact table by defining a many-to-many relationship for both the dimension usages.Correct:C 28.You are developing a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) project. The data source for a cube has tables as shown in the following exhibit. (Click the Exhibit button.) The cube contains the following objects: A dimension named DimAccounts that uses a table named Accounts. A dimension named DimCustomers that uses a table named Customers. A measure group named Transactions that uses a fact table named Transactions. A measure group named Customer Accounts that uses a fact table named CustomerAccounts. You need to create a cube dimension to browse through the measures in the Transactions fact table by using the DimCustomers dimension. What should you do?A.Create a referenced relationship and set the intermediate dimension as DimAccounts.B.Create a referenced relationship and set the intermediate dimension as DimCustomers.C.Create a many-to-many relationship and set the intermediate measure group to Transactions.D.Create a many-to-many relationship and set the intermediate measure group to Customer Accounts.Correct:D 29.You are developing a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) project. You create a cube named ExpenseData that uses a dimension named Expense. The Expense dimension is a parent-child dimension with: a key attribute named Expense. A parent attribute named Expenses of type Expense. The project contains a role named Users. You need to modify the Users role to achieve the following tasks: Restrict role members from viewing the cell values of Expenses under the expense Managerial Expenses. Ensure that all the labels for the Expense dimension are visible. What should you do?A.Change the access to Read/Write for dimension Expense for the ExpensesData cube.B.On the Cell Data tab, select the Enable read permissions check box. Enter the [Expense].[Expenses].Parent.Name<>"Managerial Expenses" expression.C.On the Cell Data tab, select the Enable read permissions check box. Enter the [Expense].[Expenses].Parent.Name="Managerial Expenses" expression.D.On the Dimension Data tab, select the dimension Expense in the ExpensesData cube in the Dimension drop-down box, and then cancel the selection of all the members under the member Managerial Expenses.Correct:B 30.You are developing a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS) project. You create a dimension that contains a parent-child hierarchy. The dimension has a key attribute named Employee and a parent attribute named Employees. You need to ensure that the dimension identifies the topmost employee member of the hierarchy as the root member. What should you do?A.Set the IsAggregatable property of the Employee attribute to true.B.Set the IsAggregatable property of the Employee attribute to false.C.Set the IsAggregatable property of the Employees attribute to true.D.Set the IsAggregatable property of the Employees attribute to false.Correct:D
