    Advice on fact table and budget



      I have a simple application with three dimension tables (Customers, Products, and Calendar) and one fact table where I concatenated orders and invoices details.

      My keys are as follows:

      1. Customers table/Fact table = Customer Number
      2. Products table/Fact table = Product Number
      3. Calendar/Fact table = Date


      I now received a budget table set up like this:

      1. Product Number
      2. Customer Country
      3. Customer Type
      4. Sales Division
      5. Month
      6. Value


      What I would like to do, is to follow orders/invoices and budget by product, country, month, and customer type. I concatenated the budget table to the fact table, and I was able to do it by product and date, because the links are obvious. But I'm not sure how to follow the budget by country. I don't have any customer number in my budget table, so I don't see how I can link these two.


      Any help?
