Comma Separated Attribute Elements in MicroStrategy

Many years ago I would inject SQL in my reports Pre/Post VLDB settings to get a comma separated list of my attribute elements. There is a better and much easier method. It's also a bonus that it is dynamic and can be updated using filters directly on the document/dossier.


First let's take a look at the dossier below. It shows Countries by GDP $'s by year.

I want to add a dynamic box at the bottom to display the Counties in a comma separated format (in a grid visualization). To do this I create a a concatagg metric on my country attribute. see my metric definition below.

Now I add this metric to my Dossier to show the comma separated values based on the filter.


And that's it!
