Calculate if No Data

Have you ever wondered how the Calculate if No Data setting works?  (I did, and Keith Berry helped me out)

“Calculate if No Data = False” prevents the execution of rules on “OK,NA” (no data) entity.  However, the Calc Status gets changed from “OK,NA” to “OK”, and it impacts the parent (“CN”).

The “False” option is to avoid populating unused entities with rules.

 

 

Calculate on “OK,NA”

Force Calculate on “OK,NA”

Calculate if No Data = True

No rule execution

No change in Calc Status

Rule is run

Calc Status changes to “OK” Parent becomes “CN”

 

Calculate if No Data = False

No rule execution

No change in Calc Status

No rule execution

Calc Status changes to “OK” Parent becomes “CN”
