Ambiguous path relationships, between User, Opportunity & Account IDs from Salesforce


I am struggling to understand the correct approach / relationships to use. I have exported 3 Standard Salesforce 'Objects' -


The 'User' Table: The users / owners of the objects - our staff. 

The 'Account' Table: The organisations / companies we sell to. 

The 'Opportunity' Table: The sales opportunities we are working on. 




My goal is to have the 'User'[ID] update the 'Account'[OwnerID] & the 'Opportunity'[OwnerID] respectively. However when trying to activate the second relationship it provides the "Ambiguous Path..." error. 


I believe this is because of the link between Opportunity & Account that exists. This is the 'Opportunity'[AccountID] connecting to 'Account'[ID], which basically tells me which organisation the sale relates to. 


How do I get all 3 relationships working and correctly updating?

@ZygoJoe , Opportunity is both Fact and dimension. You need two copies.

Opportunity as OpportunityFact and Opportunity as OpportunityDIm


As of now, there are two path from user to opportunity


use two instances of opportunity


Two dimensions should not join with each other
