Describing Data for an FML Hierarchy


This manual focuses on WebFOCUS financial reporting with the Financial Reporting Painter, supported by the underlying Financial Modeling Language (FML).

It includes detailed information about reporting against hierarchical data structures.

For your convenience, this appendix provides the information you need to understand how these hierarchical relationships between fields are described in a Master File.

As with other Master File attributes, you can define the hierarchy using either a text editor or the Synonym Editor.

For detailed information about all aspects of the data description language, see the Describing Data With WebFOCUS Language manual and/or the Describing Data With Graphical Tools manual.
