Inverse Sets

In an earlier entry “Getting something out of nothing”, Scott explained his solution for using a separate measure group to copy only the desired values from a cube, leaving the rest null.

I had an idea that might be even simpler in some situations. Rather than create a measure group, create a new dimension--similar to a Scenario dimension--where all the values in the fact table have one value. Then you can simply scope on the second member, assigning the selected values from the first.
