Example
For example, the following query shows the rank of the member colord.green within the set of members of the colord dimension, when the members are ranked by patient count:
SELECT RANK(colord.green, colord.MEMBERS, MEASURES.[%COUNT]) ON 0 FROM patients
 
                                     Green
Results                                  2
To see that this is correct, consider the following query, which sorts the members of this dimension by the patient count:
SELECT MEASURES.[%COUNT] ON 0, 
ORDER(colord.MEMBERS, MEASURES.[%COUNT]) ON 1 FROM patients

                             Patient Count
1 None                                1,243
2 Green                               1,304
3 Blue                                2,381
4 Orange                              1,302
5 Purple                              1,276
6 Red                                 1,244
