Define Reference


About:

The Define Reference block converts a data set into a dimension by defining the unique key for a given Object- like a product, or a customer etc. The block also resolves any duplicate key issues- allowing a single set of attributes to be assigned to each key, regardless of issues in the incoming data. For each Key (which can be one or more column) the block selects the most common value.
