Essbase @MAX

@MAX (expList)
Parameter Description
expList Comma-delimited list of members, variable names, functions, and numeric
expressions, all of which return numeric values.


Depending on the values in the list, @MAX may return a zero(0) or #MISSING value.

it is recommended to use the @MAXS function
instead of the @MAX function.

This example produces the following report:
