Source System contains Surrogate keys
Mar 24, 2013 9:32 AM
How to design dimension and facts when my source system table itself contains surrogate key (i mean auto generated id).......
id is autogenerated sequence....... my dimension will contain this id as surrogate key but no natural key ...is it right?
if it is right then i cannot create key map table for my dimension
I have the same question
