measure

Which measure in the cube to check, can index by position with numbers or by name. NULL, the default, will select a "sum" type measure first, "mean" if no sum is available, and will use the cube's names in alphabetic order if there are no "sum" or "mean" measures (or if a tie breaker between two measure types is needed).
