Hi Sachin Aggarwal When a lookup table is stored as snapshot, all columns in that table will be taken as derived dimension by default during cube design.
Compare to normal dimension, derived dimension does not participate in cube calculation directly. Instead, it is represented by its FK (Foreign Key) in cube. That is why using derived dimensions can greatly reduce cube complexity. During query, derived dimensions have to be converted to their FKs first, causing a small panalty to performance. --- Regards!
