Procedure to update dimension usage in OLAP in Microsoft Dynamics Axapta

Complete the following procedure to update dimension usage.

1. Click the Dimension Usage tab.

Note: Dimension usage between a dimension and a measure group will be removed automatically if the dimension or the measure group has been removed.

2. Modify dimension usage, if necessary.

You must modify dimension usage if a dimension was changed in such a way that it affects how a measure group relates to the dimension. For example, if you removed a dimension attribute, you may need to modify the dimension usage. To modify the dimension usage between a dimension and a measure group, do the following:

a) Select the field that intersects the dimension and the measure group and click the expansion button located in the field.

b) In the Define Relationship window, specify the relationship between the dimension and the measure group.

Typical changes may include modifying the relationship to remove columns that do not exist or

changing columns that join the dimension to the measure group. Keep in mind that modifying

the relationship can impact what data is returned by the cube. See the Analysis Services

documentation for more details on defining dimension usage.

c) Click OK.

3. Delete dimension usage, if necessary.

To delete dimension usage between a dimension and a measure group, click the field that

intersects the dimension and the measure group. Press Delete.
