If you load the cube, BW will insert "empty" masterdata records for those that are not present. (Empty = only key, no text, no attributes).

If you make a query using the characteristics, the texts and attributes used in your query will not be filled.

Whether you have to load the masterdata in depending on wich attributes/texts you use in your reports.
