[SOLVED]RAGGED Hierarchy found on Level: 01
I am attempting to load a dimension and receive the following error after a preview: Dimension Preview Failed
The following error was encountered:
Error S08 in PMF_DIM_LDR_LOOK - Error S02_C in pmf_dim_ldr_look_edit_new, RAGGED Hierarchy found on Level: 01 I was unable to determine the cause from viewing the trace. Can anyone point me in the right direction in correcting this error? Thanks in advance.

The error is telling you either that:

You have some data present in the source data at level 1 of your dimension hierarchy, but that there are some lower items that are missing parents.

like this:
US,
US,NY
US,MA
US,CA
CA,SA
UK,LO
UK,SC

CA,SA AND UK,LO and UK,SC need parents of CA and UK. They are missing.

OR

You have some data present in the source data of your dimension hierarchy that doesn't match levels

Example:

US,CA,LA
US,NY,NY
US,DC

DC needs a mid level. You can add another DC or a * to get:

US,CA,LA
US,NY,NY
US,DC,DC

OR

US,CA,LA
US,NY,NY
US,*,DC


Hope this makes it clear.

I have the following:
US,
US,AA
US,AA,BB
UK,
BK,
BK,LL
BK,LL,MM

Is the UK causing the error?

Yes, that's it. UK needs a kid level, that's why the hierarchy is ragged.

All dimensions in PMF have to have a "rectangular" shape. If there are no kids for UK, just do:

UK,
UK,UK,
UK,UK,UK

(corrected)
