Creating a Fact Located in a Dimension Table

Creating a Fact Located in a Dimension Table

Post by Dennis Redfiel » Thu, 01 Mar 2001 21:44:48

You have a column which is both afact AND a dimension?  Could you share with
us what this strange beast might be?.....

1. How to create private dimension on fact table?

In Analysis Services (vs. OLAP Services), selecting the fact table for
creating a (private-to-the-cube) dimension results in an aliased
instance of the fact table getting added to the schema (this is
presumably to get around the limitation in OLAP Services that only 1
instance of any table can appear in the schema). This extra instance
cannot be removed without removing the private dimension. Is there any
way to do this?
