Hi,

I am having a dimension date. The hierarchy that i have built in it is as follows

Year
Qtr
month
week
day.

I have built a hierarchy in the above manner. I would like to hide week and day levels in the hierarchy.
I cannot remove them from the hierarchy as i have other calculations based on them. I donot want the users to see these levels at all.

I have tried using Perspective. But the problem is when i try connecting from a third party application like Performance Point Server, i cannot use the perspective at all.

Can you please let me know how do you handle this in SSAS 2005?

Thanks
Dilip

Hiding levels is not supported anymore in AS 2005. Sometimes it is possible to remove that level for example the SCD2 level.
You still have an attribute (key) on dimension that is not visible to users but is used in mapping onto fact tables.
Can you say what type of calculation you are doing? If no user can access the dimension data then the calculation may be obsolute.

the aggregations are flowing up and the security is been applied at week level. So i cannot delete the week level from the hierarchy. That would throw my security off!!!!

Still the same - when not accessible than you don't need any security filters (btw the security is defined on attributes not levels) and aggregations.
