Fact and Dimension tables in Toad Data Modeler

Jun 17, 2013 8:01:00 PM by Vaclav Frolik

In physical model you can define Data Warehouse Type for your tables and graphically distinguish the Fact and Dimension tables.
Example:

By default, the Data Warehouse options are not available and must be activated in Settings. 
Standard Entity Properties form:

To display Data Warehouse Type options click Settings | Options and in section Physical Model enable the checkbox in group box Form Settings.
