OBIEE-can we link two dimension tables belonging to different fact tables?

Hi ,
I have just started with OBIEE concepts....need your views on this issue:
Fact 1 -> Dim 1, Dim2,Dim3 and so on..
Fact 2 -> Dim a, Dim b,Dimc and so on...
If I link Dim1 and Dim a with a valid key ,would that distort the star schemas to slowflake in BMM layer?
Thanks in advance!

I don't see this that would make it snowflake more like what I think as conforming dimensions. You need to make sure the grain of the measures is at what level , the they are same grain then you should be good however if they are different then you would start seeing null values.
Fact Measures use the same, conformed dimensions like Dim1 and Dim a if you trying to generate from multiple facts, the BI server was able to automatically stitch them together into a single result set. If they came from the same fact table that's easy as its only one single table, but if you are pulling from different fact tables, the conformed dimensions would allow them to be stitched into the same report
Conformance means that these sources can be mapped to a common structure – the same levels – and also the same data members.
Mark if helps.

  • How can I correlate two columns that belong to different worksheets?

    I am using beginner user of Numbers 3.2. I also thought of copying the columns of interest into a single sheet but don't know how to do so.
    Advanced thanks,

    Hi alexander,
    If you are looking for a column that will update as your reference column changes, try this:
    In the first cell of your destination column type "=" (without the quotes)
    Navigate to your reference column and click the header of that column. Click the check in the formula editor. You are back at your destination cell.
    Click the destination column header and paste.

  • Can we link two business objects  in workflow?

    Dear All,
    Can we link two business objects  in workflow?My problem is that I have to take a standard BO for triggering my z workflow .But later  in one step  I am using BO which is Z as I am calling a standard Sap transaction in one of the method inside Zobject.
    Please let me know how to go for it .
    Kind Regards,
    Anshu Kumar

    Hi Anshu,
    You can use the standard BO as the BO for your workflow and trigeger the workflow from its event. To pass values from the standard BO to the custom BO used in the activity step, you need to do proper binding between the std and custom BO in the activity step.
    Do proper binding between event -> workflow -> task container.
    For assistance on binding in workflows refer to the followng links:
    Hope this helps!

  • Same dimension in two different fact tables

    I have one same dimension in two different fact tables. I would like to know how BI server choose the fact table when I do a request in this dimension.
    I know that is always using the same fact table, but I would like to know why choose this table and not the other.

    But it doesn't seem to me.
    I reorded the tables in the BMM layer and it continues to use the same table, regardless this table is in last.
    After, I droped that table in the BMM layer and it continued to use the same.
    Thanks for your reply

    The iTunes account has nothing to do with the cellular service provider. So you should be able to have both phones on the same account. What problem do you have with it?

  • Creating Time Dimension from date columns in fact tables.

    I remember watching a demo from a BI Tool a couple years ago, wich I swear was OBIEE, and the presentator stated it was possible to create a Time Dimension in the admin tool, based on a date column in other table.
    Can you guys tell me if there's such functionality in OBIEE?
    If so, how could I achieve that?!
    Thanks in advance!

    You are trying to make Fact table as Dim table ???
    Fact table has some dim columns??
    We can do this by making a fact table as dim table ,create a dim hierarchy on that table
    Year level :Extract(year from fact_date_column)
    Month and year  level:CAST (Extract(month from fact_date_column) As CHAR(5) ) || CAST (Extract(yearfrom fact_date_column) As CHAR(5) )
    Like this
    But,be careful while doing this make sure that all joins and content levels are good
    As per my knowledge this is not a good way,Experts can add some words lets see!!!!!! :-)

  • Dimension Table Attributes giving No Fact Table Exists Error

    Hi Experts,
    My OBIEE version is There is a presentation table which has columns coming from multiple logical tables. I'm dragging 2 columns into the report which are coming from 2 logical tables.
    The result is displaying. When I checked the query, a fact table is also coming and results are getting effected because of this.
    Could anybody let me know if any idea.

    Hi SriramKarthik,
    Aj (bi007) already gave you the answer on how you can change the implicit fact table, the one you are seeing in your physical query.
    I'm just not sure of what is your question: are you surprised to see a fact table is used in the physical SQL and look for a way to avoid it because, as you say, results are impacted by that implicit fact table? You can't get rid of that table, you can only choose it (the implicit one).
    OBIEE must join in a way or another your 2 dimensions, and in your BMM these dimensions are joined by a fact table, that's why you see it in your query.

  • Where can we find the % of diamentions to that of fact table?

    Where can we find the % of diamentions to that of fact table? To decide whether to make a diamention as Line Item.

    To see the disk space used from an InfoCube you should see TCode DB02 and should sum all the involved tables (Detailed Analysis -> Object Name "<IC_NAME>"), so E, F and DIM tables.
    You can use RSRV -> All Elementary Tests -> Database -> Database information about infoprovider tables to get the rows in the fact tables and dimension tables.
    You can also use the program SAP_INFOCUBE_DESIGNS.
    Check this link:
    Re: RSRV not showing number of records
    I would rather advice you to relook at the design than go in for "line-item" dimension. You can go in for line-item dimesnion only if you feel the design is correct. The disadvantage of a line-tem dim is that you can have only 1 char in the dimension and you cannot revert back a line-item dim to a normal dim unless you empty the cube.

  • Cubes with different dimensions based on the same fact table

    I have a fact table (f_a) with three dimensions (dim_a, dim_b, dim_c) and a one measure (m_a).
    Is it possible to create cube with only one dimension (dim_a)?
    Data for other two dimensions (dim_b, dim_c) should be aggreagated together.
    Of course i can create second fact table with only one dimension, and then creating that cube would be no problem.
    But is it possible doing this directly from the primary fact table (without creating second fact table)?
    PS:i use AWM 9.2 to create target cubes. Source cubes i create with OEM 9.2

    At the beginning i was confused by the numberous kind of cubes...
    for example when i created cube in MS i just designed cube, picked fact table, and that's all. In Oracle firstly i create project of cube (first cube) in OWB. Then i export it to the OLAP Catalog (second cube). That cube in OLAP catalog is a source cube for the AW cube (third cube). Then i need to enable AW cube for OLAPI by creating another cube in OLAP Catalog (i use 9iR2, so OLAPI doesn't have direct access to AW cubes).
    I spent much time until i could see my first sample cube in Discoverer or Excel as a final user should see it. :-)
    Now i'm facing another problem - when you redesign cube (for example add another dimension), you can't just "refresh" it as it was in MS. You have to delete old cube and create new one. And deleting cube isn't so simple (i'm not sure which elements i should delete).
    For testing and learning purposes i just create every cube in seperate AW. deleting whole AW is much simplier that deleting one cube.

  • Incorrect defined log. table source- 2 differen fact tables but same source

    Hi Guys,
    I have been struggling with this error for a while and searching this forum led me to a few posts but people seem to have a different setup such
    as with Dimension tables or joining multiple facts).
    My issue is that I can not even select two column from one and the same fact table.
    [[screen print of issue]|]
    note: Total is just a calulated/derived logical colum such as A+3

    Total is calculated and the calculation takes values from a DIFFERENT fact tables BUT those fact tables have the same PHYSICAL source.
    so yes, there is no link between the facts but they are the same physical source
