I'm confused. Is this really a dimension? Or is this a dimension that doesn't exist now, but will in the future? (i.e. you're rolling out a new type of product and you've created new product dimension, but the fact table has no corresponding records). Can you plug an 'unknown' attribute into your fact and dimension?
Fact table has field called Due date which contains null values. When I create Due_date dimension, it won’t let me create, gives a message unable to count the members. I have to create dimensions out of all the fields in the fact table and send the cub to this person. Later this person will load the cub into his server and change data source and run the cub.
But my question is , If in his source table due_Date has null values(no data) , when this person runs the cube , it will give the error right?
Right now his source table due_date doen’t have values, but later he will had value into it.
He wants me to create each field in the fact table one dimension, doesn’t matter the fact table filed contains data or not? Can I do that?
