How to design Compounding char in Infocube?

I have two infoobjeccts, Cost Center and General Ledger. I assigned Cost Center as the compounding of General Ledger. In this situation, how can I design the infocube? If I assigned these two infoobjeccts as different dimensions, "No Applicable Data Found." problem happened in report. If I assigned them at same dimension, no this kind of problem. Although they are compounding, they are different issues. Based on business logic, I think they should be assigned at different dimension.

What's solution when you met this problem? Give me some advice please.

    Hello Bob,

    There are no obligation to put both objects in the same dimension. The "no applicable data found" must come from something else.

    From a modelling point of view, if you have enough dimension (few characteristics), it is more efficient to put them in different dimensions : if you have many General Ledger, a selection on the General Ledger would be more efficient. But very often we not have many free dimensions and to put both in the same dimension is not so bad. Often there are no many General Ledger and the gain is theorical anyway.
