DimensionElementPrincipalName allows you to look up the primary ID of an alias in a dimension in TM1 in a TI process.
The AttrClear or ClearAttr function doesn’t exist in TM1. Here is an easy method to replicate what functions like these would do, with a downloadable example
Virtual Dimensions in TM1 and Planning Analytics allow you to use Attributes to create additional analytic capability. Here we explain how to create them with code examples.
Virtual Dimensions and Hierarchies in TM1 and Planning Analytics explained. You can add virtual dimensions, or hierarchies, to any physical dimension in TM1 to expand the analytics available from a TM1 cube. Here we explain what they are.
Weights in TM1 can be confusing. Here we explain what they are and how to use them with some simple examples that will have your dimensions designed perfectly!
Here we explain how to calculate the number of days in each month with a simple, but easy rule, using the DAYNO function and a Next Month attribute.
Here is a great way to create virtual dimensions in TM1 based on attributes. These allow you to intersect multiple virtual dimensions from the same physical dimensions in a PAW or PAX report. Here we discuss the CreateHierarchyByAttribute function and give an example on how to use it.
How to set the order of elements in a dimension in TM1, either manually via the Dimension Editor, automatically via TM1 Server Explorer or within a Turbo Integrator process – and why you should be very careful when using it!
Dimension order within cubes in TM1 is important not only for performance, but also for usability. When should you set the order for usability and when for performance? And how do you optimise the dimension order for performance? All these questions and more are addressed in this post from ExploringTM1.
