Object Binding Dialog Box
Use the Object Binding dialog box in SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) to define bindings between the property of an Analysis Services object and a table or column in a data source view. You can display the Object Binding dialog box by selecting (new) from the drop-down list for the value of the following properties of an Analysis Services object in the Properties window of SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT):
- Binding type
Select the binding to use for the Analysis Services object. The following types of binding can be used:
- Column binding
Binds the object to an existing table and column within a data source view.
- Generate column
Indicates that a new column is to be defined in the data source view, and a column binding is then associated with it.
If this option is selected, you must run the Schema Generation Wizard before deploying the Analysis Services object.
- Row binding
Binds the object to a row in a fact table and is used to facilitate count measures based on the number of rows processed in the fact table.
- Source table
Displays a list of tables in the data source view associated with the Analysis Services object.
- Source column
Displays a list of columns in the table selected in Source table.
