Synthetic Dimensions


#1

Folks:

From my testing, it seems as if synthetic dimensions aren’t supported by redimension() … out of curiosity, why not?

Cheers,
Tim

Tim,

You are correct. I believe the reason is a bit of history and a bit of foolishness. The two operators used to follow completely different code paths. Then the code paths were merged together but some old cruft (i.e. the code that checks to see what the op can and cannot do) may not have been updated. Keep in mind - the performance is still not where we want it to be, and we need a more robust NID solution. More fixes are coming to this area soon.

there are some news about synthetic dimension in redimension? 14.12 gives a syntax error trying to add a “not already in the schema” dimension
