  • Datapge Question

    I'm not very familiar with Datapage but after messing around with it a little bit, i was wondering if there was a way to save stats by "Dimension name" instead of "Feature name".

    You have to set that in Pcdmis in the stat command, you can toggle between DIM ID and FEAT ID.

      I recomend that you use dimension id to save stats to. If you use feature id, and you use the same id more than 1 time in a report Datapage will only get one of them saved to stats.

        What W.J. said. That's what we do here. Much less confusing...

          BUT, this is a BAD habit to fall into, EVERYTHING should have a UNIQUE ID, do NOT duplicate any for any reason. Bad, BAD programmer!

            Huh? You lost me there Matt. You have to have a unique dimension I.D.???

              He's saying if you report the D of feature CIRC1 in one dimension then report the XYT of CIRC1 in another dimension then the Z of CIRC1 in another dimension only the Z will remain in the database. Everything else gets overwritten.

                All names should be unique, no two features or dimensions or alignments etc should have the same ID. That is bad juju man.

                  Are you SURE? If you make 3 dimensions of the SAME feature, all using different AXIS, I think all the values are there. HOWEVER, if you have TWO features labeld P001, only the LAST dimension will make it to datapage. BUT, I could be wrong since I don't do that. I thought it ONLY over-wrote 'pre-dimensioned' axis, so wouldn't all those axis show up when using feature names? I'll have to check this.

                  HOWEVER, Pcdmis WILL allow you to name two different FEATURES the same, ie a circle called X01 and a point called X01, then if you dimension the circle X01 THEN the point X01, only the point X01 will make it to the database.

                    Honestly, I'm not for certain. I just remember it being a pain in the a$$ in the Unix version. Maybe I'm mistaken ? ? ?

                      No cir x01 is different name than pt x01
                      Now if you don't use the cir or pt in front of the x01 then, yes you will loose the first one.
                      PCDMIS will not allow you to name them exactely the same, if they are the same type of measured feature.
                      If they are different type of feature then it will.
