Assume you have a location dimension consisting of region and plant.
In January, the Boston plant is part of the Northeast region. In February new management takes over, promptly institutes a reorganization - and now the Boston plant is considered part of the NorthbyNorthEast region.
The Northeast and NorthByNorthEast region both exist and both had the Boston plant - at different times.
If you change the dimension - it will change it across all time periods.This message has been edited. Last edited by: cbrady,

It depends on what you intend for the old vs. new location for that plant.
If you want the old region to continue to own the plant's old measure data and for the "new" location to own the data that's effective after a date, just make sure 'delete if not in new' is unchecked on the dimension. And make sure your old measure values continue to link to the old and the new values to the new. In PMF, there's a Time Dimension that makes sure this is going to come out OK.
If they will now and "in the past" belong to one or another region, and you want to remove the old dimension value entirely, make sure delete if not in new is checked on the dimension, reload it, link the old and new measures to the new location, and you're good to go.
