Logical Tables

Logical Tables

MicroStrategy uses logical tables to relate the data stored in your data warehouse to the schema objects that constitute a MicroStrategy project. Logical tables and logical table aliases represent physical tables in your data warehouse. Logical views are defined using SQL queries against the data warehouse, which can combine data from multiple physical tables into one logical table representation in MicroStrategy.

This chapter introduces you to the different types of logical tables, with a focus on how you can use the logical view feature to take advantage of the enhanced schema support in MicroStrategy.
