Elements

Dimensions are made up of elements. TM1 currently supports three types of elements:

Element

Description

Numeric

Numeric elements identify the lowest-level detail in a dimension. In a cube that contains only numbers, TM1 defines all the lowest-level elements as numeric.

Consolidated

Consolidations are aggregations or rollups of lower-level detail elements.

String

String elements store text strings in the cells. To include a string in a cell in a cube, the element from the last dimension defining the cell must be a string element. TM1 treats string elements that occur in any dimension other than the last one as numeric elements.

Key points are numeric elements which can be referred to as simple element types and identify the lowest level in a dimension hierarchy and consolidation elements. They are created strictly to calculate an aggregation.
