  • Best practice is that master companies should be set to 1 (first to be loaded)
  • 0 is the default priority & last to be loaded
  • Smallest value will be loaded first, follow ascending order but 0 will be loaded last.


The description for all dimension members will be taken from the company with the highest priority.

  • First it will load account 1100, 2200 & 3300 from entity Stockholm (priority 1).
  • Then it will load account 4400, 5500 & 6600 from entity Gothenburg (priority 2)
    Account 1100 is already loaded from entity Stockholm.
  • Third it will load account 7700 & 8800 from entity Malmo (priority 3)
    Account 4400, 5500 & 6600 is already loaded from entity Gothenburg.
  • Last nothing will be loaded from entity Lund (priority 0, the lowest priority).
    All the accounts are already loaded.
