Olap universe(creating new object)


I am using bo 4.0 version and i have created an olap universe on top of bex query.i am new to olap universe.

I have a need to create a new customized object in my olap universe out of two existing objects.As of now i am creating variables in my webi report generated out of the olap universe to fit my need.Instead i want to create a condition object or some kind of object in the universe itself.

how can i do this?Any ideas or suggestions.

For ex:

my requirement looks like this,not exactly the same as indicated below but similar.

existing objects

city object has certain values 'hyd','new york'

currency objecthas 'rupee','dollar'

new person object out of the above mentioned existing objects

if city='hyd' and currency='rupee' then 'indian' else 'non indian'

how can i do this?Any ideas or suggestions.

    there's a function builder / formula editor in Universe Designer, with OLAP universes this uses MDX syntax with XML markup.

    to build up some logic, you need to use the "IIF" operator.



    p.s. in BI 4.0, route-one should be the BICS BEx connection, not the OLAP .unv ..
