I saw this post in some other forum..just reposting it here so that someone can help..

What are summer, winter and attributal trees?
I have worked on summer trees where the lowest detail values for a node are represented by leaves.
In this case, can the same leaf value be present under different nodes? Can the same node or leaf value appear twice? We had used department information in the form of a summer tree.
What are winter trees? Nodes with their lowest detail value also as nodes? (or rather no detail values meaning no leaves?) Can you give me an example of when to use summer and winter trees?
What are attributal trees? Can an example be given on the same?
What is the significance of a Struct ID for a tree? Can two trees have the same Struct ID?

Yes, on the Tree Definitions and Properties page check Allow Duplicate Details Value. This will allow you to have the same detail value (leaf) appear under different parent nodes.

What are winter trees? Nodes with their lowest detail value also as nodes?

Correct, in fact winter and summer trees are types of a Detail Tree. The difference is one has leaves and the other doesn't. I have not used winter trees yet, so can't go any deeper!

What are attributal trees?

Boy, the only trees that i know of are:

  • Standard detail trees (summer trees). There is also the dynamic detail trees.
  • Node-oriented trees (winter trees)
  • Summary trees

Again, I have only used the standard detail trees. Sorry if this is not exactly what you are looking for.
