Variables, Variables, Everywhere
Presented by Walter Blood, Director of Product Management & Support, Information Builders
At the heart of Dialogue Manager are global and local amper variables, which are central to building complex requests, such as guided ad hoc queries. Recently, amper variables have also shown up in the Master File, and with the advent of the MFD Profile, they now play a role almost everywhere. This session will demonstrate and explore the use of amper variables, from the navigational Dialogue Manager to the DBA-generating possibilities of the master file profile.
