Creating a Hierarchy with more than one dimenstions.

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I have one fact tables and four dimensions which are related only through fact table. My requirement is to create a single hierarchy with different attributes from these dimensions. After reading the previous posts on the same subject, I created a Named query in my data source view which is nothing but the a query that joins all the dimensions and a fact table with their SK and I have the required attributes into the select statement. My question is, Do I have to create a relationship with this Named query with any of the dimensions or Fact table? If so, what would be the foreign and primary key?

Need Help in creating different sets within a same hierarchy (Period Hierarchy)

Hi, I have a period hierarchy which is set up like , Period -> All -> AllPeriod -> Then it has last 24 months (rolling) ie Period->All->All Period ->Jul08, Aug 08, ....Jun 10. So in all it has got last 24 months in it. Now I need to create a chart in SSRS which will show data for all the years ie in this case it will have 3 series in all, one for Year 2008 (it will contain Jul 08-Dec 08), the second series will contain data for 2009 (Jan 09-Dec 09) and the third will contain the data for year 2010 (Jan 10-Jun 10). In my cube there are no levels like year, half year etc..all the members are in the same level. Can someone guide me to write a proper MDX for this scenario ? What I have tried is this, with   // Getting the data for 2010, I have hard coded 6 for now in the below query as I know the currentmonth is June. set   [StartMonth] as ' bottomcount( {[PERIOD].Members}, 6)' member   [Measures].[SalesValue2010] as ' [Measures].[SalesValue]' member   [Measures].[PrevYearSalesGrowth2010] as '[MeasuresSalesGrowth]' select   non empty {[Measures].[SalesValue2010],[Measures].[PrevYearSalesGrowth2010]} on 0, non   empty {[StartMonth]} on 1   from [MyCube] where   [Condition] I ideally need three salesvalues on my columns . I guess this would be easy but I am very new to MDX and as of now d

Key Columns property when creating dimension hierarchy in Analysis Services 2008


HI All

I have 3 dimensions in our Data Warehouse, dimCampaign, dimCampaignList and dimCampaignTarget
Think of dimCampaign as a marketing campaign, that contains one or more Campaign Lists (offers) for which many customers (dimCampaignTargets) receive.  The are foreign key relationships between these 3 tables, and it is the dimCampaignTarget ids that are written to associated fact tables

I have created a single dimension in Analysis Services 2008 that contains these 3 tables and their respective relationships were set up in the DSV so that I could do this.  Rather than use the 'referenced' dimension method, I wanted a 'single' dimension containing the 3 tables and their snowflake relationships in order that I can create a hierarchy that contains attributes from differing tables (namely the Campaign Description from dimCampaign, and Campaign List Description from dimCampaignList). 

My hierarchy has those 2 levels, top level is Campaign (description), and the 2nd level is Campaign List (description).  The Campaign Targets are not shown in the hierarchy, their attribute is only used in the dimension as the join to most of the fact tables.

Problem is when I set up my hierarchy, I go to change the Key Columns property of the Campaign List attribute to make it a collection of keys (Campaign and Campaign List) as I did in

Creating a default member on date hierarchy



I am trying to set a default member on a date dimension.

I have an attribute form the database of IsToday which is a boolean with the value of today eg 23/11/2010 showing as true.

When i go into the Date dimension and try to select [Date].[Is Today].&[True] in Choose a member to be the default I get the error below

DefaultMember(Date,Is Today) (1, 1) The level '[Date]' object was not found in the cube when the string, [Date].[Is Today].&[True], was parsed.

Does anyone have any ideas why this is?


Creating your SharePoint Governance Plan

One of the most common questions that I get from prospects as I'm talking to them about the creation of a governance plan and process is what does it look like. In other words, there are materials available which describe what should be in a governance plan but there isn't a ton of guidance on what the process of creating a governance plan and process are.

Creating Paging for a Repeater Control

A common question is "How do I implement paging within a Repeater?" Although the beauty of the Repeater control is its flexibility, you're on your own for building most functions. ASP.NET 2.0 has included some new controls that provide paging, as does the DataGrid in ASP.NET 1.1. However, this tip shows you how to roll your own paging for a simple data viewer.

Creating a Generic Entity Framework 4.0 Repository

With .NET 4.0 right around the corner, I thought it would be cool to download Visual Studio 2010 beta 2 and start playing around with the next release of Entity Framework.

The initial release of Entity Framework came with a great deal of criticism. To make matters worse, there was a large uproar when it was rumored that Microsoft would be abandoning LINQ to SQL, in favor of Entity Framework. This was because, at the time, many developers felt Entity Framework was an inferior technology to LINQ to SQL. To set things right, Microsoft proactively moved forward with improving Entity Framework, in time for the 4.0 release of the .NET Framework. This is good news because my initial impressions, so far, have been nothing but positive.

Creating Sites/Lists/List Items under Current User Context in SharePoint By Using SPUserToken
