Creating a Project Using Architect » Creating and modifying facts

Creating and modifying facts

Facts are one of the essential elements within the business data model. They relate numeric data values from the data warehouse to the MicroStrategy reporting environment. Facts generally represent the answers to the business questions on which users want to report. For conceptual information on facts, see The Building Blocks of Business Data: Facts.

This section describes how to use Architect to create and modify facts, which includes:

Creating facts
Creating and modifying multiple facts

Before you create facts for your project, you can select the type of metrics that are created automatically when a fact is created for a project. This can reduce the time it takes to create the basic metrics for your project. For information on configuring Architect to automatically create these basic metrics, see Defining project creation and display options.
