Correct, unless there is a cell whose identifier is "d.1".  All the
cells created by the current user interface have numeric IDs, so this
is unlikely (though not illegal).  You need to find the ID of a cell on
the dimension list.

The cell whose ID is "1" describes a dimension named "d.1".
"d.1" are the contents of cell "1".

Hope that helps,
