Oracle Tips by Burleson

Oracle 10g Describe Dimensions

It used to always be a challenge to describe DIMENSION, and we used to depend on dictionary tables, such as dba_dimensions, and dba_dim_attributes. The Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) package was also useful for describing the structure of DIMENSION.

With the 10g release, we have a new way of describing DIMENSION, using the package dbms_dimension. We can use the describe_dimension procedure in the dbms_dimension package for this purpose. The following statement executes the procedure.

EXECUTE DBMS_DIMENSION.DESCRIBE_DIMENSION(’SALES.MYDIM’);y year, so we know exactly how to quickly assist you with any Oracle question.
