  • Chop characters from end of Member name?

      Is there a way to remove the last n characters from a member name? I have two dimensions, A and B, that are essentially mirrors of each other except the B members have 4 extra characters on the end ("_XXX"). In a business rule I want to strip off the last 4 characters from the B member so that I end up with A member name. The problem is that the A members have different number of characters so I don't have a consistent starting point to be able to use the @SUBSTRING function.
