Calculated Dimensions



As an analyst I'd like to be able to create "calculated" dimensions. I see this working in 3 ways:

  1. Simple manipulation of a value - for example like the LEFT/RIGHT/MID functions you have in Excel so I can snip out the relevant bit from a dimension value that I need in my workspace report.
  2. Ability to combine two (or more dimension) to create a new one
  3. The functionality to use a CASE statement (or similar) to change the dimension value.

I appreciate something like 3 could be done by classification but the ability to do #1 and #2 at report run-time by the analyst building the report would be great!
