Dimension Grid Wizard
Logi Info includes a new technology called Logi XOLAP (pronounced "zo lap") that brings the analytical power of data cubes to your relational data and other diverse data sources such as web services, XML, and files.
The following topics describe the Dimension Grid Wizard in Logi Studio, which can be used to build Logi XOLAP data cubes:
Logi XOLAP has been deprecated; the related elements are still supported, for now, and will work but they're no longer available in Logi Studio.
About Logi XOLAP
If you have not done so already, see Logi XOLAP for important basic information before proceeding here.
The two major parts of the Logi XOLAP technology are the Dimension Grid element, which is the user interface into the data, and its child element, the Xolap Cube, which retrieves the data, constructs the data cube, and connects it to the Dimension Grid. The Xolap Cube uses a number of child elements, including one or more datalayers, to retrieve the desired data.
The Dimension Grid is a "super-element", similar to the Analysis Grid and the OLAP Grid elements. At runtime, users can manipulate the data they see and the way in which it's presented using the Dimension Grid's user interface controls. The report developer has complete control over which controls are available to a user and can present them selectively to different users.
The example above shows a Dimension Grid configured to show a Data Table and a bar chart. The Data Table behaves like a Crosstab Table, and can pivot data.
This topic discusses the Logi Info Studio Dimension GridWizard that will create all of the elements necessary to work with Logi XOLAP. If you are interested instead in information about building cubes manually, using individual elements, see Dimension Grid.
The Dimension Grid wizard incorporates several other wizards which help you create Xolap Cubes, Xolap Dimensions, and Xolap Measures. Each of these wizards can be runindividually from their context menu or the Element Toolbox when they're selected.
