INSERT only supports integer dimensions


#1

Is there any plans to make Insert work for non-integer dim’s. Any specific future version. If I have a non integer dim’s and need to do an incremental loads, what work around do I have.

Thanks

#2

Yes.

The general name we give to these features are “Non-Integer Dimensions”. The problem is that the NID implementation requires that we first have a solid implementation of integer dimensions. We made a start on NIDs, but had to stop work on the feature because we needed to get things like the “insert()” operator done.

Non-Integer Dimensions are going to be implemented as a kind of “index” that maps the non-integer index values to the underlying integers. But our first task was to get integer dimensions working. Now we’re turning our attention to NIDs.


#3

Will this be available in next release?
