Boolean Data Type

A BOOLEAN data type enables you to represent logical values. In code, BOOLEAN values are represented by values for "no" and "yes" (in any combination of uppercase and lowercase characters). The actual values that are recognized in your version of Oracle OLAP are determined by the language identified by the NLS_LANGUAGE option. You can use the read-only NOSPELL and YESSPELL options to obtain the values represent BOOLEAN values. In English language code, you can represent BOOLEAN values, using:

  • YES, TRUE, ON

  • NO, FALSE, OFF

Working with BOOLEAN expressions is discussed in "Boolean Expressions".
