This puzzle is rather simple, but it does introduce a few new things. Using T-SQL you typically filter queries with a WHERE clause. You can also do the same with MDX, but just like T-SQL there are a few ways to accomplish this. In this puzzle you will see an example. Here are the requirements:
Show: Internet Sales Amount
Columns: Ship Date Calendar Year
Rows: Product SubCategory
Filter: Only return Product SubCategories that have sales greater than 1,000,000 and only return data between Calendar Year 2006 and 2008.
Hint: Use the FILTER function to limit the rows by Sales Amount.
