Creating Custom Measures

You might have situations in which the measures that were defined in the original OLAP source data do not meet your business needs and the OLAP data source creator has not given you permissions to add measures to the original OLAP data source. For instance, you might not have the ability to add a measure to a read-only offline cube file, or your OLAP server administrator might not allow you to add a measure to the OLAP database on the server. In these situations, you can create a custom measure in Data Analyzer. The custom measure becomes part of the view file; it does not become part of either an offline cube file or an OLAP database on a server.

To create a custom measure in Data Analyzer, you use the Template Measure Editor, shown in Figure 9-17. To open the editor, click Add on the Template Measures tab of the Define View dialog box.
