Level Naming Template Dialog Box (Analysis Services - Multidimensional Data)


Applies To: SQL Server 2016 Preview

Use the Level Naming Template dialog box in SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT) to construct the level naming template for a parent attribute in a dimension. For more information about level naming templates, see NamingTemplate Element (ASSL). You can display the Level Naming Template dialog box by clicking the ellipsis button (...) on the NamingTemplate value of a translation for an attribute in the Translation Details pane on the Translations tab of Dimension Designer.



Define the level template

Displays a grid in which you can design the hierarchy of levels in the parent attribute. The grid contains the following columns:

To add a new naming template for a level, select Name on the row that contains an asterisk (*) in Level.


Contains the naming template used for the level indicated in Level.

To add a placeholder for the level ordinal position in the naming template, add a single asterisk (*). To add an asterisk as part of the name created by the naming template, add two asterisks (**).

Clear All

Select to remove all rows in Define the level template.
