    Can an extension object have JUST dimensions?

      I am making an extension object and for some reason I don't get any data unless I add a measurement in my definition.xml. Here is my file:

       

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <ExtensionObject Label="NarrativeInput" description="Narrative Input" PageHeight="100000">
        <Dimension Label="Element ID" Initial="ElemID" TargetName="Element ID"/>
        <Dimension Label="Element Name" Initial="WbsNumDesc" TargetName="Element Name"/>
        <Dimension Label="Period ID" Initial="PeriodID" TargetName="Period ID"/>
        <Measurement Label="Expression - Set as sum(1)" Initial="sum(1)"/>
        <Text Label="WSWebSvc Url" Type="Text" Expression="" Initial="vWSWebSvcURL"/>
        <Initiate Name="Caption.Font.Italic" Value="1"/>
        <Initiate Name="Caption.Text" value="Narrative Input"/>
      </ExtensionObject>


      This gets me 13 rows of data (what I expect. But when I delete the Measurement from my file I always get 0 rows.

       

      I would expect the deletion of the measurement to have no effect. Isn't it just a dummy column?
