    Hi,

    In Designer, objects are qualified as one of three types: dimension, detail, or measure.

    Dimension: Parameters for analysis. Dimensions typically relate to a hierarchy such as geography, product, or time. For example. Last Name and City_Id

    Detail : Provide a description of a dimension, but are not the focus for analysis. For example. Phone Number

    measure: Convey numeric information which is used to quantify a dimension object. For example, Sales Revenue

    Detail objects are bound to dimension objects and have a rather descriptive role. They can be used to aggregate results (in fact the aggregation is done along the related dimension) but they cannot be used for drilling.

    I would recommend to look in the universe designer guide:

    Just search for "detail object"
