Re: Using PickLIst to validate dimension attribute2012-09-28T09:12:55Z in response to vipirailoNot DIRECTLY. Although you would think that picklists would be very useful for validating inputs to attributes and security cubes in their wisdom IBM decided to disallow picklists for all control cubes. Any cube that starts with } will simply ignore a picklist if you try and set it. You can only do a work around of creating an input cube with a picklist and then creating either a rule or TI to bring the data from the input cube to the attribute cube.

Your joke about wisdom IBM gets me laughed. I guess they should have some reason for that restriction, who knows. Also i'll think about you've suggested. It looks like there is no other way until IBM will remember why it was done so.
