Cardinality

1-1: Required element that occurs once and only once.

The Attribute element defines the attribute member that is inserted, updated, or deleted, respectively, by the Insert, Update, or Drop command. As these commands can operate only on one attribute member at a time, the Attributes collection of the Insert, Update, and Drop commands can contain only one Attribute element. However, the Attributes collection of the Where element for the Drop and Update commands can contain more than one Attribute element, so that you can filter the attributes to be dropped or updated in a write-enabled dimension.
