Obviously you need to filter out the rows before you sum them, not after.
(After you have summed, say, all of the sales in a particular year and
region, the total will obviously be large, even though many of the
contributing cells might be <4.)

In cases such as this, you need to do the filtering in SQL, viz:

<Measure name="Quantity" datatype="Integer" aggregator="sum" visible="true">
<MeasureExpression>
<SQL dialect="generic">
case when quantity > 4 then quantity else null end
</SQL>
</MeasureExpression>
</Measure>

Subject: Filtering measure values


Hi!


I would like to aggregate the sum of revenue and filter the measure
value, e.g., where quantity>4, following this description:

<Measure name="Quantity" column="quantity" datatype="Integer"
aggregator="sum" visible="true">
</Measure>
<Measure name="Revenue" column="revenue" datatype="Numeric"
aggregator="sum" visible="true">
</Measure>

Using SQL, I would simply issue: select sum(revenue) from table where
quantity > 4;

However, how could I perform such filter using MDX?

Regards,

Anderson
