Here, we see that a total of 8 bytes would be added to the fact table to provide fast reference to information about the type of customer who made the transaction. We also note that there are provisions for unknown values for the customer, as would be the case when a customer did not use their Grocery Club card, in this case, a “U” for unknown character values and a zero for unknown numeric values. Now, queries from end users desiring transaction information according to the type of customer are easy to respond to because the fact table does not need to be joined with the customer table. But, what about the product classifications? Because the product classifications are hierarchical in nature, we need to develop another mechanism for representing them in our fact table.
