Preparing to Run the Dimension Grid Wizard
Prior to running the Dimension Grid wizard:
Become familiar with the data you'll be working with. Identify the data
columns that will become dimensions and measures, what
values (aggregations) you need, and how you might want to
filter the data.
Ensure that you have a valid Connection configured in _settings
and can connect to your datasource.
If you're using a SQL data source, you may care to experiment a bit in
the Query Builder to develop the query that you'll need.
- You should also keep an eye on the number of result rows your query is likely to return. While Logi XOLAP can process tens of thousands of data rows into an XML cube very quickly, millions of result rows may produce unacceptable delays.
Now, launch Studio and open your report definition.
