parent-child dimension

parent-child dimension

parent-child dimension

Hi, i'm using Analysis Services/SQL server both with SP4, and i have a view with data.

The cube is working fine, but now i have to build a new dimension(parent-child). All my other dimensions are star schema based on the view.
In the column of the data i have data like "abc;def;ghi;" or "abc;ghi;" and i want to filter data based on this values:
this values are in a table.

When i choose in the dimension "abc;" i want to filter not with an equal but with a like( like in SQL)

is it possible?

many thanks


RE: parent-child dimension

I have a similar problem with an extract from an OODB that I am using.  Are you making this a hirarchy or just want to be able to slice?  

I am currently thinking that this will require a hirarchy table of some sort but as I said, I'm not too far along on the path.

If you figured this out, please let me know!
