I am trying to create a very simple geographical hierarchy on a Carrier dimension. My data is something like this:

Carrier City State Country
--------------------------_---------
Carrier A | Chicago | IL | USA
Carrier B | Aurora | IL | USA
Carrier C | Stockton | CA | USA
Carrier D | Winnipeg | MB | Canada
Carrier E | Richmond | BC | Canada
Carrier F | Valparaiso| ZAC| Mexico
Carrier G | Veracruz | VER |Mexioc

My Hierarchy is defined as

Country
State
City
Carrier

Attribute Relationships:

Carrier --> City Name --> State Name --> Country

I expected the browser to display the hierarchy as follows:

USA
----------> IL
---------------> Chicago
--------------------> Carrier A
---------------> Aurora
--------------------> Carrier B
----------> CA
---------------> Stockton
--------------------> Carrier C
Canada
----------> MB
---------------> Winnipeg
--------------------> Carrier D
----------> BC
---------------> Richmond
--------------------> Carrier E
Mexico
----------> ZAC
---------------> Valparaiso
--------------------> Carrier F
----------> VER
---------------> Veracruz
--------------------> Carrier G

Instead it's repeating each level in the hierarchy:


USA
----------> IL
---------------> Chicago
--------------------> Carrier A
USA
----------> IL
---------------> Aurora
--------------------> Carrier B

USA
----------> CA
---------------> Stockton
--------------------> Carrier C
Canada
----------> MB
---------------> Winnipeg
--------------------> Carrier D
Canada

----------> BC
---------------> Richmond
--------------------> Carrier E
Mexico
----------> ZAC
---------------> Valparaiso
--------------------> Carrier F
Mexico
----------> VER
---------------> Veracruz
--------------------> Carrier G


Any idea why each level is repeated / not unique in the browser?

Hi and welcome to the forums. In order to help we will need a few things:

1. Sample DDL in the form of CREATE TABLE statements
2. Sample data in the form of INSERT INTO statements
3. Expected results based on the sample data

Please take a few minutes and read the first article in my signature for best practices when posting questions.
