Custom display formats

In Chapter 2, Dimensions and Cubes, we reviewed element attributes and the Format attribute. Again, to revisit, this attribute allows the definition of a number of formats for numbers, dates, times, and strings. If you right-click on a dimension, click on Edit Element Attributes, and then click on the cell at the intersection of the Format column and the element for which you want to define a display format, TM1 will allow you to select a standard format for that element or define your own. These formats will be applied to all cells in the defined data intersection.
