Did you know? SQL Server 2008 includes Dimension Designer Enhancements

Posted by denglishbi on July 20, 2008

SQL Server 2008 includes Dimension Designer Enhancements, new attribute relationships designer, and additional Best Practice Alerts:)

The Dimension Wizard within BIDS 2008 (VS 2008) for Analysis Service Projects has been simplified and introduces a new attribute relationship designer.

The wizard has reduced the number of screens and includes an auto-detection for parent-child hierarchies.

There have also been modifications to the Best Practice Alerts and there are now 57 alerts integrated into the designer along with a new option to add comments to them and disable them if desired.

Check out a screencast about the Dimension Designer Enhancements in SQL Server 2008 here.

Read more about this in the SQL Server 2008 BOL ‘Dimension Designer (Analysis Services – Multidimensional Data) ’.
