Essbase - Time dimensions (Year)


Tag a dimension as time if it contains members that describe how often you collect and update data.

In the Sample.Basic database, for example, the Year dimension is tagged as time, as are its descendants—all Qtr members and the months (such as Jan).

The time dimension also enables several accounts dimension functions, such as first and last time balances.

Rules when tagging a dimension as time

  • You can tag only one dimension in an outline as time.
  • All members in the time dimension inherit the time property.
  • You can add time members to dimensions that are not tagged as time.
  • You can create an outline that does not have a time dimension.
