Best Way to Display Account History

Best Way to Display Account History

Hi all...I have a reporting challenge, and I am wondering what the best way to handle this in a cube is.

I have essentially two fact tables.

I have an account event type table that looks something like this:

The account Referral table:
Date     Acct    Status Balance   TreatedDt  
1/1/08   123     Good   $123.45   2/10/08
1/1/08   124     Bad    $654.45   1/10/08
2/3/08   123     Bad    $128.45   Null

The account history table:
Date     Acct    Balance   Status
12/1/07   123    $123.45   Delinquent
1/1/08    123    $128.45   Delinquent
2/1/08    123    $138.00   Charged off
12/1/07   124    $654.45   Delinquent
1/1/08    124    $660.03   Current
2/1/08    124    $660.03   Current

What is the best way to integrate the event type data and the account type data in a cube so I can display vintage account performance data.  I have looked into semi-additive measures and other types of solutions (including duplicating the event data for each of the account history months), but I haven't found a good solution.  What is the best practice here?
