Using the Synonym Editor for Cube Data Sources
The Synonym Editor enables you to make further modifications
to your Cube synonym definitions. The Cube synonym is displayed
in the Cube View tab. If you select a component of the synonym,
its properties appear in the right pane.
You can use the Synonym Editor to:
- Edit field
names and titles for measures, properties, and variables. You may also
edit the field prefix for the defined fields.
- Edit titles
for multiple languages, delete titles, and add titles for additional languages
if you are using code page UTF8.
- Delete measures,
dimensions, or parent/child hierarchies.
- View the usage
and actual formats and the ability to change the usage display format
for the field.
- Change an internal

access property for variables.
- Change the
field prefix used to create the field names, mandatory property
names, and DEFINE field names generated for parent/child hierarchies
by the Synonym Wizard.
- Create virtual
measures (this is implemented with COMPUTE fields in the Master File).
