Attribute View

Used to prepare master data and attributes add context to data.


Can be linked to fact tables in Analytical views
Subtype
a. Standard
b. Time - A Time view creates a master data view for time characteristics (calendar year,
quarter, month, week, day, fiscal year/periodwith different notations and so on)
c. Derived
If views are displayed via Excel, each Attribute view is represented in Excel as a Dimension. Each
attribute in the list of output fields has among its properties a setting Hierarchy Active. This
setting defaults to false. If set to false the attribute will only show up in Excel (via MDX) if it
is a key field of the attribute view. If set to true, the attribute will show up in Excel also if it is
not a key field.
Hierarchy - Hierarchies helps business to analyze their data in a tree structure through different
levels/layers with drilldown capability. Each hierarchy comprises of a set of levels having many-
to-one relationships between each other and collectively these levels make up the hierarchical
structure.
a. At present, hierarchies defined in the modeler are only accessible via MDX.
b. 2 Types:

Parent-Child hierarchy
Join Types
Referential Join - Is semantically a inner join that assume that referential integrity is given which
means that the left table always have an corresponding entry on the right table. Referential
Joins will be only executed, when fields from both tables are requested. Therefore, if a field is
selected from the right table it will act similar to inner join, and if no fields from the right table is
selected it will act similar to a left outer join.
Inner Join - The INNER JOIN combines records from the left and right table exactly when the
specified criteria are met. If the criteria are not met, no record is created in the result set
Left Outer Join - A record from the left table is always stored in the result set. If a record from
the right table met the criteria, it is combined to the record from the left table, otherwise the
columns are empty (zero).
Right Outer Join - A record from the right table is always stored in the result set. If a record from
the left table met the criteria, it is combined to the record from the right table, otherwise the
columns are empty (zero).
Text Join - Used to join a text table to a master data table. This is a requirement for description
mapping. The text join always filters on one language and thus one needs to specify a language
column in the text table.
