Hi,

I have a scenario where I have a time dimension and have quarters and seasons in it. A quarter can be a subset of season and season can be a subset of quarter. Can you please let me how to load alternate paths of such a Time dimension?

The time dimension would be by date. Season and quarter would simply be attributes of the date. They are independent of each other.

Some industries (such as retailing or agriculture) may have seasons that are product dependent. In such cases implementation of season becomes more complex as it is a relation between date and product.
