  • Dimension tables contains the descriptive information of the data such as Order details, Product description. Whereas Fact tables contains measurable information such as Sales, Profit.

  • Yogesh Reddy says:

    A dimension table stores attributes or dimensions which contains the Descriptive values and Fact table consists of the measurements, metrics.
