Comments

  • This behavior is happening because the SORTCOMPONENTSTYPE proper
    ty of the dimension was set to BYNAME (you can see this in the }
    DimensionProperties cube.  SortElements refers to the ordering o
    f the set of all dimension elements.  If you ask the dimension t
    o list out its elements, they'll be returned in this order.  Sor
    tComponents refers to the ordering of the immediate children (co
    mponents) of a consolidated element.  If you ask that element fo
    r its components, they'll be returned in this order.
    If you change the property to ByInput then the order set in the
    dimension editor will apply.  A ticket has been issued to docume
    ntation to update the description of these properties.
