With the ability to build .ivt files from a comma separated file now available in the latest release of the Beyond 20/20 Builder (v7.1), now might be a good time to review the various types of source data that the B2020 Builder and DC Wizard accept.


Before considering your source files, you should have a clear understanding of how many .ivt files you want to build, the number of dimensions in each (and their general content), and what metadata should be associated with each Beyond 20/20 table.


You may have data in a bunch of different file formats or it may be stored in an existing database. If in a database, you should consider using the DC wizard which requires that you have a fact table where each record contains item keys (integers), item codes (characters), and at least one measure, or quantitative value. The DCWizard documentation outlines the steps required to build your tables.
