Aliases are alternate names for specific values within a dimension. For example, you may want to assign aliases for the values of the “Customer Segment” dimension. Perhaps you want the “Consumer” members of this field to display as “Home Consumer” in all views.

Aliases can be created for the members of most dimensions in the Data window. You cannot, however, define aliases for continuous dimensions and dates and they do not apply to measures. The method for creating aliases depends on the type of data source you are using.

  1. Aliases with a Relational Data Source
  2. Aliases with a Multidimensional Data Source
  3. Example – Editing Aliases
