Resolve Synthetic Keys with 8 Categories of Same Metrics

Hello,

I'm struggling to figure out how to resolve a synthetic key issue. The context of this issue is that I'm attempting to create a dynamic pivot table with the following selection options as list boxes. I figured out how to achieve the list boxes, but I can't figure out how to populate the dynamic pivot.

  1. Dimension(s):
    • FTE
    • GSO-ON
    • GSO-OFF
    • Budget
    • Objectives
    • Deliverables
  2. Metric(s):
    • Year
    • Maturity State
    • Maturity Index
    • Budget Type
    • Budget Nature
  3. Business Area(s):
    • Dev Ops
    • Prod Ops
    • 3PD
    • TDM

My main issue is that all of the business areas share the same metrics & dimensions. Thus, my entire table is connected by a number of synthetic keys. Here is the key view after I tried to resolve the issue by qualifying each table. However, that won't resolve my problem because I need to associate each dimension & metric between the 10 business areas.

Is anyone able to point me in the right direction? Do I need to create a link table, or concatenate the common dimensions & metrics (even though they are shared by all of the business areas)?

Best,

AR

Concatenate all the business area into a single table with flag for each business area.

In your expression you can use the flag to determine which business area.
