    Aliases/Descriptions for SAP BW based Data Sources

    ser ser

      Hi . I'm bringing data from a Multidimensional Source - SAP Bex Query (SAP BW). For some reason the I don't in Tableau the descriptions/text for the Dimensions member value, but only the keys (simply numbers and letters with no assignation to text) 

      For this particular dimension there are only 4 values and I'd like to assign somehow the aliases to those values. I read in the help section that with Multidimensional sources it's a bit different, so I wonder if anyone could explain me how to do it maybe through MDX?


      When I right click on the dimension member I don't have any option to edit aliases. Is there any other way of assigning text/description/aliases to the members' keys/values??
