MOVE

The MOVE command moves an object name to a new position in the NAME dimension of an analytic workspace. The reorganizing effect of the MOVE command on the workspace is cosmetic. That is, no physical changes take place in workspace storage. Users often reorganize workspace objects so the output from DESCRIBE is easier to read.

Syntax

MOVE name... {FIRST|LAST|{BEFORE|AFTER} name2} [AW workspace]

Arguments

name...

The names of one or more objects to move. You can specify the names individually, or use one of the following forms to specify a group of names:

name TO name
FIRST 
LAST n
boolean-expression (dimensioned by NAME)

You can specify a qualified object name to indicate the attached workspace in which the object resides. As an alternative, you can use the AW argument to specify the workspace. Do not use both.

When you do not use a qualified object name or the AW argument to specify an analytic workspace, Oracle OLAP looks for the object in the current workspace.

FIRST
LAST

The logical position in the NAME dimension to which Oracle OLAP moves the objects specified by the name argument. Specifying FIRST moves the objects to the beginning of the NAME dimension. Specifying LAST (the default) moves the names to the end of the NAME dimension.

BEFORE name2
AFTER name2

The position before or after a particular object (name2) to which Oracle OLAP moves the objects specified by the name argument.

AW workspace

The name of an attached workspace in which you wish to move the object. When you do not use a qualified object name or the AW argument to specify an analytic workspace, objects are moved in the current workspace.

Notes

Alphabetizing Your Objects

You can arrange your workspace objects alphabetically with the following statements, which work on the NAME dimension.

SORT NAME A NAME
MOVE CHARLIST(NAME) FIRST

Examples

Example 10-68 Moving a Relation

This example shows how to move the relation desc.product after product. The OLAP DML statement

SHOW CHARLIST(NAME)

produces the following list (annotation has been added).

product           <--- Position of product
district
division
line
region
marketlevel
market
month
year
quarter
desc.product      <--- Old position of desc.product
region.district
division.product
...

The following statements

MOVE desc.product AFTER product
SHOW CHARLIST(NAME)

change the workspace order and produce the following list (annotation has been added).

product           <--- Position of product
desc.product      <--- New position of desc.product
district
division
line
region
marketlevel
market
month
year
quarter
region.district
division.product
