Bug: #50003844 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 fix release.
Symptoms
When you select a dimension as a nested table in a Data Mining model in Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Business Intelligence Development Studio (BIDS), some attributes of the dimension do not appear. Therefore, you cannot select these attributes. This problem occurs if you select a cube as the data source for the Data Mining model.

Note This problem may also occur when you add a nested table to an existing Data Mining model.

Note This problem does not occur in SQL Server 2005.
