I just read an article MDX: Except written by Vincent Rainardi.

It shows set subtraction by usng the EXCEPT function (as you could derive from the title, no doubt). I have always been a fan of using the “-” and “+” operators instead of EXCEPT and UNION where possible because in my opinion they give us better visiblity of the intention we are putting behind our MDX expressions. However, EXCEPT and UNION have an advantage over “-” and “+” – the third parameter ALL.
