To refer to items in a table component, tokens must follow specific formats. The formats used depends on the table item referenced. Figure 4-3. Table component formats shows the basic elements of a sample table. These elements are used as examples for referencing data within the table using tokens.
>] is used to represent the table. The format
>] is used to represent specific tokens. The following sections provide examples of the formats used for tokens that reference items related to the table component:
In these examples, a table component named Employee has the following four columns:
Years of Service
These columns are defined as follows:
Table Component "Employee" table with [EMPLOYEE] as the Token. Column 1 - Employee Name; Token = [NAME] Column 2 - Years of Service; Token = [YEARS_OF_SERVICE] Column 3 - Department; Token = [DEPARTMENT] Column 4 - Employee Salary; Token = [SALARY]
[REQD.P.EMPLOYEE] - returns the raw row count without any descriptive information.
[REQD.VP.EMPLOYEE] - returns the row count with descriptive information. Example "13 Entries".
WHERE: EMPLOYEE is the Token given to a table component type.
WHERE: EMPLOYEE is the Token given to a table component type and SALARY is the Token name given the table's first column.
You can use this table component token in a Table Column Header validation SQL or in a table component rule SQL.
EMPLOYEE is the token given to a table component type and
SALARY is the token name given the first column of the table. This is very useful if a column lists user names. This list can be used to send the users notification.
