Inserting a New Record Hierarchy in Conceptual Objects
Conceptual objects define a relationship between a parent record and its child record. Conceptual objects visually display the relationship between multiple data objects. In self recursive conceptual objects, the parent-child relationship is between two records within the same table. In network recursive objects, the relationship may be between multiple records in multiple tables.
In Nova mode, in conceptual objects defined to display in tree view, you can insert a new record anywhere in the hierarchy by selecting the physical data object in the navigation pane and then executing the insert command. In self recursive and network recursive objects, each level of the hierarchy is known as a node. In these objects you can define a new node at any level of the tree.
When inserting a new record hierarchy, ensure that you follow the path that corresponds to the view defined for the object, either tree or advanced parent-child view.
* To insert a new record hierarchy
1. On the Menu toolbar, click Manage > Manage Data.
2. Navigate to the object that you want to edit and select it.
3. Optionally, enter filtering criteria and click Apply Filter to display records.
4. To insert a new record hierarchy the top level conceptual object or self recursive conceptual object, use the step that corresponds to the object display view:
*In advanced parent-child view, click Insert > Insert.
*In tree view, expand the tree in the left pane, navigate to relevant parent object, and click Insert > Insert.
Tip: Click the Open Next Level icon or Open All Levels to display the tree hierarchy of self recursive objects.
*In network recursive objects in tree view, create the parent record by clicking Insert > Insert Node without selecting any existing records. To create a child record, navigate to the parent record and click Insert > Insert Node.
Note: If the cardinality rule is set, OneData displays the objects according to their defined cardinality rule.
5. Define the record data, ensuring that you define the correct parent object and click Save.
Note: In self recursive conceptual objects, you can drag records to change the record hierarchy.
