DataSet Component


A DataSet Component is an ordinary DataVeil DataSet definition that is saved as an independent XML file so that its definition can be centralized and used by any DataVeil project.

Please refer to DataSets for a detailed description of the usage of DataSets.


Create a DataSet Component

Creating a DataSet Component is almost identical to creating an in-project DataSet definition.

The only difference is that the component's DataSet form does not have a 'DataSet Name' field for the DataSet name. Instead, the file name of a DataSet Component is used as the DataSet name.

To create a DataSet Component, open the Components tab in the main GUI window and then select the child DataSets tab.

Click on 'Create...' and the DataSet Definition' dialog shall appear.


After entering the CSV file information, as described in detail at The DataSet Definition, click 'OK'.

The Save dialog is now shown and will open at Component Home. The name that you specify as 'File name' shall become the name of this DataSet Component.



Click 'Save'. The DataSet Component is saved and becomes visible in the Components->DataSets tab.


Using a DataSet Component

A DataSet Component is used in exactly the same way by a DataSet mask as an in-project DataSet definition (defined under the DataSets tab).

Please refer to DataSets and the DataSet Mask for further information.
