Hello all!

I have a number of dimensions and cubes, and I have scheduled them to be processed every week through a SQL Server Agent Job. I want it to be independent of how many dimensions I have, so I created a table with the dimension nameId, and a stored procedure that reads the name from that table and executes the dimension.

The problem is the following:
I need it to be completely automatic, without the need to write the dimension nameId into the table. So, how can I do it?
I would like to say, process all the dimensions and cubes from that folder. Is it possible? Can I do it from a DTS, from a stored procedure?

I want to know about the job, how do you control when to stop processing ?

This is just a thought of processing the dimension table automatically.

1. Procedure to read the table that has all the dimension table name. Execute the DTS package to load the data into the dimension table with the name of dimension table as global parameter of the DTS package.

2. Inside the DTS Package, get the dimension table name from the global variable. Process another stored procedure to load the data into the table.

my 2 cents
