Creating and modifying attributes

Business data represented by facts can offer little insight without the presence of business concepts and context, which take the form of attributes in MicroStrategy. Attributes provide the business model with a context in which to report on and analyze facts. While knowing your company’s total sales is useful, knowing where and when the sales took place provides the kind of analytical depth that users require on a daily basis. For conceptual information on attributes, see The Context of Your Business Data: Attributes.
