Procedure: How to Change a Loaded Dimension to be User-Entered
  1. In the Manage tab in PMF, click the Dimensions panel button.

    Select the dimension that you wish to change. The Edit Dimension panel opens.

  2. Select Entered by Users from the drop-down menu.
  3. Click Save.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click the Enter Dimension Values tab to edit the level values of the dimensions. For more information on how to do this, see How to Edit Level Values on a User-Entered Dimension.

Note: Clicking Unlock Panel will turn the dimension into a standard user-entered dimension. Doing so will permanently break any links with existing loaded measures. The dimension will then only be able to link to user-entered measures. Also, any existing user-entered measures might need to be re-entered, depending on the changes that were made.
