Viewing and setting information about types

From the Type node, you can specify field metadata and properties that are invaluable to modeling and other work.

These properties include:
  • Specifying a usage type, such as range, set, ordered set, or flag, for each field in your data
  • Setting options for handling missing values and system nulls
  • Setting the role of a field for modeling purposes
  • Specifying values for a field and options used to automatically read values from your data
  • Specifying value labels
