Introduction to SQL Server 2000 Analysis Services: Parent-Child Dimensions - Page 11

By William Pearson

Next in Our Series...

In this, the fourth article of the Introduction to MSSQL Server 2000 Analysis Services series, we examined another special type of dimension, the Parent-Child Dimension, and explored the attributes that make it different from a regular dimension. We discussed several considerations that surround the Parent-Child Dimension, such as the recursive nature of the source data that populates it, as well as various actions that must be handled differently in its creation and maintenance. We discussed setting properties to achieve desired display results, and reviewed cube processing as a part of refreshing our data.

In our next lesson, Working with the Cube Editor, we will review, summarize and integrate the components that we have constructed and the concepts that we have explored individually in the last three lessons. Our objective will be to undertake a complete cube build, pulling together all that we have learned, to assemble a cube similar to but more sophisticated than the cube we generated in our first lesson with the Cube Wizard.
