Using control flow commands, conditional, and logical operators

In this recipe, we will control the calculation flow and apply conditional logic to a calculation by using FIX\ENDFIX and IF\ENDIF. We will also learn how to aggregate and calculate the database using the AGG and CALC DIM commands. Moreover, we will use the SET CREATEBLOCKONEQ command to make sure that blocks are created for our calculated measure. Finally, we will review the logical operators that you can use in the calculations and discuss the @RETURN function new to 11.1.2.x. This recipe only applies to the BSO model.
