Using the results from our latest query execution, we can easily verify that the calculated member is producing the results that its name purports. An example of such verification appears in All that remains, to align the results dataset with the presentation requirements specified by the information consumers, is to remove the 14.

Exit the ## Summary ...This article served as an extension of our previous introductory article, TopCount() function, and then extended our examination of the TopCount() function to include somewhat more sophisticated uses. We defined illustrative business needs as posed to us by hypothetical groups of information consumers, and, after discussing the needs in general, with regard to challenges inherent to meeting them with the
