Inserting a member of a dimension in a rule

Planning Business Modeler provides a powerful dialog box that helps you locate and select members in a given dimension. You can use the Add or remove members to include them in the selection for [DimensionName] dialog box to select dimension members for any purpose. For example, you might use this dialog box to define a SCOPE statement, to modify dimension specifications in a business rule, or define a dimension association in model mapping. This tool enables users to quickly examine available options and then select those that are most relevant.
