Introduction to MSSQL Server 2000 Analysis Services Custom Cubes: Financial Reporting (Part I) - Page 6

By William Pearson

Creating the Cube - Expense Focus

The Cube Editor will first guide us through the selection of our fact table, which houses the measures upon which we seek to report. We will create our basic financial reporting cube shell by taking the following actions:

1.      Right-click the new Cubes folder under the FinRep_DB database we created above.

2.      Select New Cube from the initial shortcut menu.

3.      Click Editor, as shown in the illustration below.

The Cube Editor appears, beginning with the Choose a Fact Table dialog, providing us with an opportunity to select a fact table for our cube, as depicted in Illustration 12 below.
