TRIGGERSTOREOK

The TRIGGERSTOREOK option controls whether you can use $STORETRIGGERVAL properties to specify that NA values in an object be permanently replaced by the values specified by a $NATRIGGER property.

Important:

The value of the TRIGGERSTOREOK option is only one factor that Oracle OLAP uses to determine what to do with variable data that is the result of $NATRIGGER expression execution. For a discussion of the other factors and their interrelationship, see "How Oracle OLAP Determines Whether to Store or Cache Results of $NATRIGGER".

Data Type

BOOLEAN

Syntax

TRIGGERSTOREOK = {NO|YES}

Parameters

NO

(Default) NA values are not permanently replaced with the $NATRIGGER property expression that is set for a variable.

YES

NA values are permanently replaced with the $NATRIGGER property expression that is set for a variable. The default value is NO.

For Oracle OLAP to permanently replace NA values for a variable with the valid $NATRIGGER property expression that is set for the variable, you must set both the TRIGGERSTOREOK option and the $STORETRIGGERVAL property for the variable to YES.

Usage Notes

About the $NATRIGGER and STORETRIGGERVAL Properties

The TRIGGERSTOREOK option works with the $NATRIGGER and $STORETRIGGERVAL properties of a variable.

Examples

Example 5-110 Replacing NA Values Temporarily

This example replaces the NA values in the cells of a variable temporarily. The following statements define a dimension with three values and define a variable dimensioned by the dimension. They add the $NATRIGGER property to the variable, then put a value in one cell of the variable and leave the other cells empty, so that their values are NA. Finally, they report the values in the cells of the variable.

DEFINE d1 INTEGER DIMENSION
MAINTAIN d1 ADD 3
DEFINE v1 DECIMAL <d1>
PROPERTY '$NATRIGGER' '500.0'
v1(d1 1) = 333.3
 
REPORT v1

The preceding statements produce the following output.

D1            V1
--------- ----------
        1     333.30
        2     500.00
        3     500.00

This statement deletes the $NATRIGGER property from the v1 variable.

CONSIDER v1
PROPERTY DELETE '$NATRIGGER'
REPORT v1

The preceding statements produce the following output.

D1            V1
--------- ----------
        1     333.30
        2         NA
        3         NA

Example 5-111 Replacing NA Values Permanently

The following statements add the $NATRIGGER property to the v1 variable that was defined in the previous example and set the TRIGGERSTOREOK option and the $STORETRIGGERVAL properties to YES. They then report the values in the cells of the variable.

CONSIDER v1
PROPERTY '$NATRIGGER' '800.0'
TRIGGERSTOREOK = YES
PROPERTY 'STORETRIGGERVAL' YES
REPORT v1

The preceding statements produce the following output.

D1                 V1
-------------- ----------
             1     333.30
             2     800.00
             3     800.00

The following statements delete the $NATRIGGER property from the v1 variable and report the values in the cells of the variable.

CONSIDER v1
PROPERTY DELETE '$NATRIGGER'
REPORT v1

The preceding statements produce the following output.

D1                 V1
-------------- ----------
             1     333.30
             2     800.00
             3     800.00
