Multiple formats

The Computed parameter named Multiple formats is relevant when the same facet can be represented by one out of a number of different base parameters.

The value of a generated facet is computed as follows:

  • The expected situation is that only one of the base parameters in a row has a value. In this case, the generated facet displays that value.
  • If there is more than one value present among the base parameters, then the generated cell displays an error message
  • If no base parameter has any value, then no value is displayed, and the corresponding cell in the table remains blank.
