Modelling issue for MultiProvider

Hi all,

I have a little modelling issue here.

Cube C1 has KeyFigure K1 and characteristic A2 with navigational A3.

Cube C2 has KeyFigure K2 and characteristic A1 with navigational A2. On his turn A2 has navigational A3.

I would like to combine these cubeu2019s in a Multiprovider and make the following report:

Char A3 KeyFigure K1 KeyFigure K2

We use 7.0 back-end and 3.5 front-end.

Anyone knows how to model this?

Thnx in advance,

    Hi Henk,

    build an infoset for the second cube by including the cube C2, the infoobject A2 and the infoobject A3. In this infoset you will have to maintain a join between the infoobjects A1 (contained in the cube) and infoobjects A2 and A3. Finally, create a multiprovider containing the infoset and Cube C1. Over there make the appropriate identifications for infoobject A3 and key figures k1 and k2. This will solve your issue.

    Best regards

      Theodoros / Bala,

      Problem solved!

      I think my question was a bit confusing but youu2019ve put me on the right direction.

      I've done the following:

      1) InfoSet made on the basis of C2 and InfoObject A1 and A2

      2) Join between Cube C2/IO A1 > Key IO A1

      3) Join between IO A1/Attr A2 > Key A2

      4) By the last join also the navigational A3 of A2 is available

      5) MultiProvider with InfoCube C1 and InfoSet will do the trick.

      Bottom-line: not A2 and A3 had tot be included in the InfoSet but A1 and A2.

      Again: thanx for putting me on the path for the InfoSet. Iu2019ve rewarded points.
