## Ways of Limiting Conjoint Dimensions

You can limit a conjoint dimension in either of the following ways:

• Limit the base dimensions.
• Limit the conjoint dimension itself.

### Limiting Conjoint Dimensions Using Value Combinations

To limit a conjoint dimension to a list of values, you can use the following constructions:

• Specify the actual values, surrounding each combination with angle brackets.
```LIMIT proddist TO <'TENTS' 'BOSTON'> <'FOOTWEAR' 'DENVER'>

```
• Use a variable name for the values, surrounding the combination with angle brackets.
```prodname = 'CANOES'
distname = 'SEATTLE'
LIMIT proddist TO <prodname distname>

```
• Create a multiline list, in which each line is a combination surrounded by angle brackets and separated by `\n` (the linefeed escape sequence).
```namelist = mytext = '<\'TENTS\' \'BOSTON\'>\n <\'FOOTWEAR\' \'DENVER\'>'
LIMIT proddist TO namelist
```

### Limiting Conjoint Dimensions Using Base Dimension Values

Because there is an implicit relation between a conjoint dimension and its base dimensions, you can limit the conjoint dimension by limiting the base dimensions.

For example, the following command limits a conjoint dimension named `proddist` to all conjoint values having `CANOES` as one of the values of the base dimension `product`.

```LIMIT proddist TO product 'CANOES'
```
