[SOLVED] Create attributes to a level hierarchy

Hi.

We would like to know how to create attributes to a level hierarchy. We saw in the tutorials created by our WebFocus server, that some masters have the following presentation in the Dimension View:



Is there any configurable property in the master to get the folder "Attributtes" into a level hierarchy?

Thanks.

Regards,

Leonardo.

I'm not sure how to do it (or explain how to do it) in the GUI Synonym Editor, but look in the documentation for the WITHIN attribute:

quote:
The WITHIN attribute enables drill up and drill down functionality on hierarchical dimensions. You can manipulate a report by selecting an OLAP-enabled field and drilling down to view other levels of a dimension hierarchy.


Documentation > Describing Data With WebFOCUS Language > Describing an Individual Field > Defining a Dimension: WITHIN

Bear in mind that there needs to be a binary relationship between the levels of the hierarchy. A child may only have one parent but a parent may have many children.

Is that necessary to create the Attributes folder into a level hierarchy? If I want to have a level called "Month", how could I add attributes to that level? I.E: Month name.
