finish

Overview

The finish statement creates a Reporting Database File (RDF) from a DSET. The RDF can subsequently be used by the reporting engine.

Syntax

finish[dset.id]

Details

The finish statement is used to create an RDF from a DSET. Only a single DSET can be used to create an RDF, but multiple finish statements may be used within the same task file. If there is no dset.id parameter then the default DSET will be used.

The RDF created by finish will be saved as <BaseDir>\system\report\<yyyy>\<MM>\<dd>_source.alias.rdf

where:

  • <yyyy> is the 4-digit year

  • <MM> is the 2-digit month

  • <dd> is the 2-digit day

  • source.alias are the source and alias tags which form the DSET ID

Any existing RDF with the same name will be overwritten.

Examples
