changing dimension "names"


New member
I havent had to do it in some time- I want to denote a dimension with a letter- for the use of simplifying a familty tabel. CAN NOT remember how to do that, this is in Wildfire 2.0. any help?


Pick dimension, right click, pick properties. In dialog box pick Dimension Text tab. Change @D to @S and change the name to the text that you want to show. For a created dimension you can also change the @D to @O (letter 'Oh') and add any test string you want.
