Hai

I have a question, may be very simple though..
What does it mean in WF language when some one says these are the primary dimensions and these are the measures for a report? I guess these are data warehouse terms but are they related anyway to WF report (FOCUS language)?

Thanks a lot

Generally, measures are those things that you can count or sum. Dimensions are categories and are things you sort by. So, yes, they are data warehouse related terms that blend very well into WebFOCUS language.
