Good Example

Bad Example

Data Sources

A-Z a-z _, <space>, Numbers

Must be usable from DATA() functions. Avoid putting version information in the name and use the description instead.

SALES_DATA_PRODUCTION, "GEM Data"


Dimension & Levels

A-Z a-z _

Since level names are automatically matched, the levels should adhere to the same rules as Excel Column names.

Location, Product_D, PRODUCT_D, PRODUCT, PRODUCT_CODE

Product-Code, 123Dim

Excel Worksheets

A-Z, a-z, _ , no Numbers, no Spaces

Append _DIM for Dimension Sheets

Must be usable from DATA() functions. Valsight translates the Names to internal database names, therefore stricter rules than in Excel apply.

Sales, FTEs

2018-Products, Products-V1

2018-03

Excel Column Names

A-Z, a-z no Numbers, no Spaces, underscore is OK.

Valsight translates the Names to internal database column names, therefore stricter rules than in Excel apply.

Volume, Number_of_Units_Sold

"Number of FTEs"

Excel Filename

The filename has no implications for Valsight, as the Data Source name is used to access the file.
