Inferred Dimension Members (Slowly Changing Dimension Wizard)
Use the Inferred Dimension Members dialog box to specify options for using inferred members. Inferred members exist when a fact table references dimension members that are not yet loaded. When data for the inferred member is loaded, you can update the existing record rather than create a new one.
To learn more about this wizard, see Slowly Changing Dimension Transformation.
- Enable inferred member support
If you choose to enable inferred members, you must select one of the two options that follow.
- All columns with a change type are null
Specify whether to enter null values in all columns with a change type in the new inferred member record.
- Use a Boolean column to indicate whether the current record is an inferred member
Specify whether to use an existing Boolean column to indicate whether the current record is an inferred member.
- Inferred member indicator
If you have chosen to use a Boolean column to indicate inferred members as described above, select the column from the list.
