It's pretty easy, particularly with a BSO db as you can do it in-memory via EAS.

1) Open up the outline in EAS
2) Go to the Outline menu and select Update Outline
3) Select your data file and load rule
4) Click on OK

You should see your new dimensionality load into the outline. You can try this with the attrprod text file and load rule. Errors will be piped to the dimbuild.err file.

You can also right click on the database node in EAS and select "Load data". Yes, you are loading metadata, not data, but it will work if you have defined your load rule to do a dimension load.
