The Time Dimension Structure and Loading script for SQLServer

 

In a Data Warehouse there are a number of common dimensions such as Geographic and Time

I leave here a script to create the Time Dimension table and a procedure to loading it between two dates:

 

/ * Destination database * /

use PAnalisys

/ * Create table * / 
create table DIM_TIME

   DateSK int not null, 
   Date date not null, 
   Year smallint not null, 
   Quarter smallint not null, 
   Month smallint not null, 
   Week smallint not null, 
   Day smallint not null, 
   WeekDay smallint not null, 
   NQurater char (7) not null, 
   NMonth char (15) not null, 
   NMonth3L char (3) not null, 
   NWeek char (10) not null, 
   NDay char (6) not null, 
   NWeekDay char (10) not null 
   constraint PK_DIM_TIME CONSTRAINT PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED 
   ( 
       Asc Date 
    ) 
)

     SELECT @NWeek = 'Week' + CAST (@week AS CHAR (2)) + '/' + RIGHT (RTRIM (CAST (@Year AS CHAR (4))), 2) 
     SELECT @NDay = CAST (@Day AS CHAR (2)) + '' + RTRIM (@NMES) 
     SELECT @NWeekDay = DATENAME (dw, @DateFrom) 
     INSERT INTO PAnalytics.dbo.DIM_TIME
     ( 
       DateSK, 
       Date,

     (

     ) 

     - Increase the loop 
     SELECT @DateFrom = DATEADD (DAY, 1, @DateFrom) 
   END 
COMMIT TRANSACTION 
 

From here everyone can modify it at his convenience by adding or removing attributes
