I have requirement where, user dont want 10 webforms to enter 2 accounts line for various sparse members. Below is the dimension detail and web-form current design
Account - Dense
Period - Dense
Year - Sparse
Scenario - Sparse
Version - Sparse
Entity - Sparse
Product - Sparse (600 level 0 members)
Product dim has family1 as parent and 40 level 0 mem like that there are 10 family level 1 members, now to enter account member (only 2 member) for 6 years projection ( it means 12 periods and 6 years in column ) , i can build 10 web-forms with one web-form has one family level-0 mem in rows, however my question, is how can i achieve this in one web-form, instead of 10 web-forms for 400 products ?
your help is greatly appreciated.

Im not sure there is any simple way to get dynamic row selection based on what is selected in the page.
If I were designing the form based on what you have stated, I would probably stick both Account and Year in the page, and the 400 products in rows. This would require the user to select the different combinations of Year / Account, but would mean only 12 columns (instead of 72).
Alternatively you could stick Account in rows too - meaning 800 rows, but less combinations to select in Page....all depends what is deemed acceptable to the user.
Probably other approaches that may be better than above (put Product in the Page for fun!!)
Have you considered taking advantage of User Variables, and using these to drive the products that show up in your rows? With a user variable, the user updates a variable that indicates the product family, and then this variable is referenced in the form's row definition. You'll have one form that could work for all product families.
The only downside is that the user has to select the variable, however with proper training, it's not a big deal.
