 Base currency setting

 Defines what currency your system is using and gives directions how to calculate measures in Currency, Base currency and Base currency 1.

 Main data source register

Main data source of data that belongs to this Data cube

Main register values will be stored in Measure Dimension.  Values are stored in currencies that is defined in your base currency setting and have Item and record level measures. You can read more about it here - Record and item level measures (Item base amount,Invoice amount etc.)

OPTIONAL

Optional registers and measures  that you can connect will add other extra Measure values conecteed to main data cube register, give names to members and create properties  that you can use in data filtering and sorting. 

 Extra Measure registers

 Optional registers contain extra values that can be added to Measures dimension based on some specific register in HansaWorld. For example, Invoice Balance ( Invoices ) , Item Status ( Stock)

 What is data Cube ?
Imported data is stored in multi-dimensional data cubes. Cubes contain fact data that are divided by dimensions and each detailed fact "cell" contains measure values about that fact.

Each detailed cube "cell" contains sales amount and units sold for particular product, customer and time period:
