How To Grouping Tables Using Families

Hi All

I am explaining how to group the related tables into one families.

A family is used to group the tables of the same type for example we can define families for  grouping sales fact table and related dimension tables using background colors, text color and font.To Create families follow the below steps.

Open the data foundation in the editor by double-clicking the data foundation name in the Local Projects View.

Click the Edit Families icon in the data foundation view. In the “Edit Families” dialog box, create a family for each table group:

Click Add to define a new family –> Enter a name for the family in Name. –> Edit the table color, background, and font for the family. –> Click Apply to save the family definition.


Follow the same steps to add the other families (Billing, Inventory and Monitoring). Once you have added all the families, Click OK. Assign tables to families. For each family:

Select the tables to be assigned to one family –> click the table headers while holding down the CTRL key. And then  In the Families list in the data foundation view tool bar, select the family.


To remove a table from a family, select the table, and in the Families list, select No family.  And Save the data foundation by clicking the Save icon in the main tool bar. And export.


Hope this helpful for create of families and group related tables.
