Cube Editor - Schema View

Use this tool to view and edit the schema of a cube and examine and edit the structure of a cube. You can also use Cube Editor and connected dialog boxes to perform various procedures.

Cube Editor appears in two views, data and schema. Both views include the tree pane and the properties pane, but the data view includes the Data tab, whereas the schema view includes the Schema tab. You can switch from one view to another by clicking the Data tab or the Schema tab at the bottom of Cube Editor. You can also click Data or Schema on the View menu.
