Is the 'Dimension' aggregation type a bug? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When configuring the data column properties for a tabular data source, you can specify the aggregation type for fact columns. One of the options that is in the drop-down, is Dimension. When you pick that option and then click somewhere else, the value None is actually selected. Also the help doesn't mention the Dimension aggregation type, nor are several online articles that I ran into.


    So, my impression is that this is a minor bug and that the Dimension option shouldn't be one of the aggregation types (to begin with, I had no idea what this option should do, that's why I started to look into it). Can anybody confirm this? Or is there really a use for this option that I am not aware of yet?
