Browse Cube Data – Change the Dimensions in the Grid

In this section, you will learn How to replace a dimension in the grid

To replace one dimension in the grid with another, drag the dimension from the top box and drop it directly on top of the column you want to exchange it with. Make sure the pointer appears with a double-ended arrow during this process.

Using this drag and drop technique, select the Store dimension button and drag it to the grid, dropping it directly on top of Measures. The Store and Measures dimensions will switch positions in Cube Browser.
