Property Value

Type Description

A String value which is the name of the data field.



This member is no longer supported in Optimized, OLAP, and Server modes. Use DataSourceColumnBindingBase.ColumnName instead.

Use this property to change the data field that is assigned to the current PivotGridFieldBase object. To specify the text displayed within the field’s header, use the PivotGridFieldBase.Caption property.

In OLAP binding mode, the FieldName property must specify the full name of the bound measure or dimension.

For dimensions, the full name is composed of a dimension’s name, followed by a hierarchy’s name, followed by the name of a level(s). All names should be wrapped within square brackets and separated from one another using the dot symbol. Example: “[Customer].[Customer Geography].[Country]”.

For measures, the full name is composed of the “[Measures].” string followed by the measure’s name. Example: “[Measures].[Sales Amount]”.
