Creating User-Defined Dimensional Structures
When dimensional accounts contain data, adding child members deletes all data in the parent member.
Use these rules when naming dimension or members:
Dimension names are validated against other dimensions.
Member names must be unique—even across dimensions.
Members are not case sensitive (South=souTh=SOUTH).
Member cannot share names with dimensions.
Dimension and member names can contain alphanumeric characters, spaces, hyphens, slashes, periods, commas, and colons.
To create user-defined dimensional structures:
Select Accounts, then Dimension, and then Maintenance.
Option: To create dimensions, click Add Sibling and enter a name.
Option: To create members, select a dimension, click Add Child. and enter a member name.
Option: To create nested members, select a member, click Add Child, and enter a member name.
