If you notice where Value of Internet Sales is Null for Base Year in our case CY 2006 the result is 1.#INF

In our case for Accessories and Clothing we are getting result as 1.#INF because of simple reasons 1/0 is 1.#INF

1.#INF – is nothing but formatted value of infinity

Another way of checking result of ‘1/0’ is given below

with  member [Measures].x
as 1/0
select
[Measures].x on 0
from [Adventure Works]

As expected result if infinity.

We can workaround this behavior by adding IIF statement, where we are stating if denominator is Zero then show NULL else perform Division.
