Chapter 3 introduced us to working with worksheets and views by using the understanding of dimensions and measures. We learnt to group dimensions, build our own hierarchies of dimensions, and create sets to dynamically select the data to display in a view. This chapter will delve deeper into the understanding of dimensions and measures. It will introduce two new fields, namely, measure names and measure values. We will learn to blend multiple measures on a single axis and also to use dual axis to enhance our presentation of data.
