Example

The first example shows the base-ten logarithm for the %COUNT measure:

SELECT LOG(MEASURES.[%COUNT]) ON 0 FROM patients
 
                                       LOG
                                          4

The next example uses the %LABEL function to apply a more detailed caption:

SELECT %LABEL(LOG(MEASURES.[%COUNT]),"LOG PAT CNT") ON 0 FROM patients
 
                               LOG PAT CNT
                                          4
