Hi,

I have an issue with my FACTS. I'm not sure what I should do with it.  

I have an registration fact table.  A student is registered in a College in January.  At the time of registration, the College is a public College.  Every February the colleges can be given a private status, and any registration after February will be at a 'Private College'.

When I try to analyse the number of students in a private college.  Anyone registered in January is public but after January is Private.  Once the college turns private, I would like to the registration to be classed as private.

I was thinking of adding a flag to my FACT private/Public.  And updating the Flag retrospectively if the College changes status.


Any thoughts?


Thanks for any help!
