I have a question as a new user. Having used pivot tables and other B.I. software I have to ask: Does a measure really have to be defined for every single aggregate type for every column in the mondrian schema if you wanted to have all of those as an option in your cube? For example, if "sales dollars" is your column from the source table you want to use, isn't there a way in the drag and drop editor to just drop "sales dollars" into the cube and select your aggregate type right then and there in the cube itself (sum, max,min,etc)? Just as you would in an Excel pivot table?
