Dimensions

I am not clear and would be thankful if someone could explain the following

1. A dimension in a cube consists of 1 DIMID and 10 characteristic (SIDs)

2. The number of records in this dimension is about 900,000 records - this means that there are about 900,000 DIMID created is that correct?

3. The DIMID is a generated number and is not equal to the most granular characteristic in the dimension, is that correct?

Thanks

      Thanks for this.

      I have reviewed the document and still do not feel that the DIMID is equal to the most granular characteristic, since some sources of data may not be providing the transactional data at that level of detail.

      Could you let me know
