rank
0..1
The rank order of this dimension (the order in which the value for this dimension will appear in the cell address)denoted with a 1-based indexing. Provides coordinate order (1,2,n) for the intersect point of this dimension within the cell address. For example, if the rank of this dimension is 2, the intersect point on this dimension will be the second value listed in the cell address.

variableReference
Identifies the variable describing this dimension. The dimension uses the CodeList and related categories, or a fixed range of numeric values to define the labels and intersect points for the dimension. The data set will contain a value for each cell in the NCube rather than the code from the CodeList.
