# [Mondrian] How to dynamically group multiple range on dimension

``` Hi, All:

I rewrite this question as below to avoid misunderstanding.

I have a dimension called number_dim which is a random number from 0 to
MAX integer and a measure called sum_count which is sum of all count.
I have following two MDX query and get same result listing all the
sum_count for different number.

SELECT
NON EMPTY {[Measures].[sum_count]} ON COLUMNS,
NON EMPTY {[number_dim].[count_hiera].[number].Members } ON ROWS
FROM [my_cube]

SELECT
NON EMPTY {[Measures].[sum_count]} ON COLUMNS,
NON EMPTY {
[number_dim].[count_hiera].[number].&[1] :
[number_dim].[count_hiera].[number].&[100],
[number_dim].[count_hiera].[number].&[101] :
[number_dim].[count_hiera].[number].&[400],
[number_dim].[count_hiera].[number].&[1000] :
[number_dim].[count_hiera].[number].&[2000]
} ON ROWS
FROM [my_cube]

number   sum_count
21           40
99           15
127         25
350         30
1380       20
1453       20

----------------
I was asked to get table below which the sum_count can be grouped by range
of number_dim dimension. the group number could be changed at MDX.
For example, we can group it to 2, 3, 4 or any number groups.

------------------
number   sum_count
1-100       55
101-400     55
1001-2000   40

With my understanding, I can not add a new level on number_dim to group by
level, because the number of groups could be changed, and how to mapping
number to group is dynamical.

I might need some code similar to
http://www.ssas-info.com/analysis-services-faq/27-mdx/915-how-do-i-group-dimension-members-dynamically-in-mdx

Your any help is highly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Selina
