Understanding Compound Dimensions

A Compound Dimension is created by combining all or selected Dimension Values from two existing Dimensions.  A Metric or a Report may be Dimensioned using a Compound Dimension.  As a result, an instance of the element for each  Compound Dimension Values is fetched in a Result Set.

When creating a new Compound Dimension, one of the Dimensions is designated as the Primary and the other as the Secondary Dimension.

Instructions for creating a new Compound Dimension are found here: Create a Compound Dimension with Selected Values
