Hi guys,
does anyone know how to copy and paste a table to create an alias with in a tabular model.
e.g. I need 4 date dimension. start date, end date, resolved date and status change date. Each exactly the same with 2 hierarchies.

Creating each one from scratch is a bit of a ball ache.
anyone?

cheers

I am looking for a solution too. I have more than one cube, and want to copy my date dimension from one cube to another.

A bit of outdated forum request.
The tabular model generates a json file, default name is model.bim.
It is possible to open the file in for example notepad++. Somewhere after the remark "tables": you can copy the part for the dimension you would like to copy. When copying note to make sure to modify the "name":
Also make sure to make a copy of the .bim file before trying this.

Like this it is not all that hard to do.
