Editing Details for a Valid Intersection Group

To edit valid intersection group details, you work with dimension members in the member selector. You can also define exclusions in valid intersection rules.

To edit valid intersection group details:

  1. Click Application, and then click Valid Intersections.
  2. If it isn't already selected, click Setup.
  3. Click the name of the valid intersection group you want to edit.


    A pagination bar displays at the bottom of the rules page. If you have a large number of rules, you can use the pagination bar to easily navigate between the rules pages and to jump to a specific page. The page size options (number of rules per page), which you can select on the pagination bar, are 25, 50, 100, and All. (Note that the All option isn't available if you have more than 300 rules.)

    • To edit dimension details, next to the dimension, click down arrow icon to select the members to include, exclude, or remove in the valid intersection rule:

      • Click Edit to open the Select Members page and select members, substitution variables, and attributes to include in the valid intersection rule. You can also type in the members or functions. See Using the Member Selector.

      • Click Add Exclusion to define an exclusion in the rule. You can select members to exclude; for example, you can select or include all children of YearTotal except children of Q1 by excluding children of Q1.

      • Click Clear to clear the selection.

    • To delete a dimension from a valid intersection group, next to the dimension, click down arrow icon, and then click remove icon.

    • To remove a rule from a valid intersection group, click remove icon.

    • To add a dimension or a rule to a valid intersection group, click Add Rule or Add Dimension.
