If there is a need to have an attribute that is automatically generated and that contains the values from multiple attributes, the Computed attribute type provides the means to do so. The Computed attribute could then be exported via a grid, for example. Use @ to return an attribute value of an item, part or node. The attribute type is specified by the SID suffix, like "@ASID". To combine attribute and string, use '+'. Below is one example.
Example Attribute Definition
'M1_' + @ASSE + '_' + @SASS + '_' + @PART + '_' + @PNUM
To test before defining the computed attribute use the Path query evaluation.
Adding a Computed Attribute to a Grid
Use "AttributeColumn", as shown below.
<Grid> <Columns> <AttributeColumn type="M1"/> <ItemNameColumn width="200"/> </Columns> <Row/> </Grid>
