DimSiz TM1 Function: Use and Syntax
The TM1 function DimSiz returns the total number of elements in a TM1 dimension.
Syntax of DimSiz
The syntax is DIMSIZ(dimension); where dimension is the dimension you want to get the total number of elements (note that you may need to prefix the dimension name with the TM1 server name in the syntax servername:dimension).
Use and Example
You would typically use this function in to set up a loop so you can then repeat a process as many times as is required to make your way through all elements in a dimension. For example:
iElm = 1;
ElmCount = DIMSIZ(sDimName);
WHILE(iElm < ElmCount);
iElm = iElm + 1;
This sets up two variables (iElm and ElmCount) and then processes the guts of the loop until iElm equals the number of elements in the dimension.
DimSiz can be used in either Rules or TI processes
