The Select the dimension with the member properties dialog appears. We are given a choice of "eligible" dimensions - that is, dimensions that the Wizard determines to possess member properties, upon which a virtual dimension is based.

8.  Click Store in the Available Dimensions list on the left side of the dialog.

The Member Properties list on the right side of the dialog becomes populated with the "eligible" member properties for the Store dimension (including the new Store City member property we added in the previous section of our exercise), as depicted in Illustration 19.
