Goal

What purpose does N_DISPLAY_ORDER_NUM serve in the hierarchy table?

For example, if you have a dimension member = 1489451, on the second occurrence should the display order number be 2? If 1489451 was the child code and the parent code is 0, it means that it is the total roll-up and child code will equal parent.  This means the second occurrence of the 1489451 code will make the display order 2, even though it is occurring the first time, should it be assigned display order 2 since it is first used as a parent code for the total roll-up?
