    Shared Dimensions

    Shared dimensions are shared across more than one subject area. They are created for efficiency (both from a development perspective and from a user perspective) and are necessary in order to create cross subject area reports. For information on creating reports from more than one subject area, see Creating Advanced Custom Reports.
    This chapter describes in detail all shared dimensions, including where they are used and the list of fields that they contain.
