## 11 Calculate Cubes

A cube contains two types of values: values that you enter, called input data, and values that are calculated from input data. A cube can be calculated using one of two methods. Outline calculation, which is the simplest calculation method, bases the calculation of a cube on the relationships between members in the cube outline and on any formulas that are associated with members in the outline. Calculation script calculation lets you procedurally calculate a cube; for example, you can calculate one part of a cube before another, or copy data values between members.
