2. Click Process Cube, as shown below.
NOTE: We might have alternatively chosen the Process Cube button depicted in Illustration 22. Another means is right-clicking the cube, and selected Process Cube from the context menu.
The Save the Cube dialog appears as shown below.
3. Click Yes.
The Cube: New Name dialog appears.
4. Name the cube Fin_Rptg, as shown in Illustration 24.

A message box (shown below) appears warning that the cube has no aggregates designed, and asking if we want to design aggregations prior to processing the cube.
6. Click No.
The Process a Cube dialog appears, as shown in Illustration 26. The Full Process option is selected by default, as this is the first time the cube has been proposed for processing.
