My team and I are attempting to leverage the "Varying Attribute Dimension" feature in version 220.127.116.11, and would appreciate guidance and your experience on whether or not it is possible to associate the attribute and the "varying" base through a dimension build.
For example, our varying attribute dimension includes B1, B2, and B3, which vary over periods and years. The base dimension is Entity. For Entity_ABC, the association should be B1 for Jan 2012 - Apr 2012, B2 for May 2012 - Jul 2012, and B3 for Aug 2012 - Dec 2013.
Does anyone have experience applying the associations with the ranges through a dimension build? Any examples of the dimension build file and appropriate dimension build settings to accomplish this task would be greatly appreciated.
It appears that the only way to load the varying attributes is through Essbase Studio. For the reader's peruse, here are a couple of good resources I came across in my research:
