AGGMAP SET

Specifies the default aggmap for a variable.

Note:

You can also use an $AGGMAP property to specify the default aggregation specification for a variable or the $ALLOCMAP property to specify the default allocation specification for a variable.

Syntax

AGGMAP SET aggmap AS DEFAULT FOR variables

Arguments

aggmap

The name of a previously defined aggmap object.

variables

A text expression that is the name of one or more variables for which the specified aggmap is the default aggmap. When you specify a literal value, separate the names of the variables with commas.

Examples

Example 9-25 Using AGGMAP SET to Specify a Default Aggmap

Example 5-3, "Using the $AGGREGATE_FROM Property" illustrates how the AGGREGATE command shown in Example 9-12, "Using a CACHE Statement in an Aggregation Specification" can be simplified to the following statement.

AGGREGATE sales_by_revenue USING revenue_aggmap

You can further simplify the AGGREGATE command if you make revenue_aggmap the default aggmap for the sales_by_revenue variable. You can do this either by defining an $AGGMAP property on the sales_by_revenue variable or by issuing the following statement.

AGGMAP SET revuienue_aggmap AS DEFAULT FOR sales_by_revenue

Now you can aggregate the data by issuing the following AGGREGATE command that does not include a USING clause.

AGGREGATE sales_by_revenue
