Consolidate

Multi-dimensional databases generally have hierarchies or formula-based relationships of data within each dimension. Consolidation involves computing all of these data relationships for one or more dimensions, for example, adding up all Departments to get Total Division data. While such relationships are normally summations, any type of computational relationship or formula might be defined.
Synonyms: Roll-up, Aggregate

Related Terms: Formula, Hierarchical Relationships, Children, Parents
