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.

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.

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.
