Hi All,

I have designed a cube with 1 fact and 3 dimensions.
I deployed and processed the cube and getting valid(expected) data.
But when i add one more dimension called Date dimension then for same measures showing less data, even thogh we dont drag that dimension into browser.

How do we know why it is showing different data after adding another dimension.

Thanks in advance.

When you add a new dimension to your browser window, what exactly it means is you are trying to query with that dimension as well. You either might be using it in the filter condition, which filters it to certain dates or it slices down the data for different granular levels. If you don't choose it inside the browser at all but just add a new dimension to your cube, it shouldn't make any difference because you are not using it.
