If you have a dimension with a parent child dimension, you can use the "Create Member" syntax to add a member to it.

Having done this, if you attempt to retrieve members of the top level using GetSchemaDataSet() you get an exception.

Tried this with SQL2012 and SQL2012SP1.

On previous versions the metadata was returned without a problem.

Oops, went a bit mad with the attachments there. One is a cube backup, the other is a C# project.

Forgot to mention, this only seems to happen if the calculated member is at the top level, if it goes under another member it seems okay.
