Full support for aggregate function with DISTINCT in OLAP SPECIFICATION

Use of DISTINCT with e.g. COUNT function in OLAP specification (PARTITION BY clause) returns error SQL0441N (SQLCODE -441). Due to the fact that Db2 does NOT support the use of DISTINCT option in such cases, we have a major impact with COGNOS gene...
