INSERT only supports integer dimensions


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.




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.


Will this be available in next release?
