Hi Team,

I have two tables “Transaction” (Measure) and “Material” (Dimension) with below data.

  • Transaction

Country Material Amount
IT M1 200

  • Material

Country Material

I have changed relation in Data Source View As Transaction - Destination (Primary key) Table and Material - Source (Foreign key) Table.

Dimension is made on Material table.

Measure is made on Transaction table having relation with Material (dimension).

Then I tried to build cube it’s giving error like “attribute is not found in Material table”.

    Hi @Bhaumik Upadhyaya ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    have two tables “Transaction” (Measure) and “Material” (Dimension) with below data.

    May I ask what is the relationship between IT M1 in Country Material and IT M1 200 in Country Material Amount? If it's one to one, there might be will no errors because it is a bi-direction. If it's one to many, the direction only from IT M1 to IT M1 200.

    Then I tried to build cube it’s giving error like “attribute is not found in Material table”.

    Could you please provide a the first original error message?

    Best regards,
