AggregationType enumeration is used to define the type of aggregation in ROLAP cubes.

IndexedView only applies to Data Sources that use SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 2005.

Defining an AggregationType to be UserDefined requires manually specifying the bindings for each granularity attribute in the aggregation to the columns in the user-defined table; there is no graphical interface to help in this process.
