You can easily use Excel’s Flash Fill tool to transform data fast, without formulas.
Did you catch that? Without formulas!
Flash Fill has been around a few years, but few people, including auditors, seem to be aware of it.
This tool is so easy to use, you could learn it AND teach it to your mom in 4 minutes. Really.
Recently, I ran an import script to import a delimited file into ACL, but the last 10 fields were not imported. And I didn’t know it right away, because I received no error message.
In addition (or should I say, in subtraction), the log did not indicate anything was wrong. Continue reading
In ACL, a conditional computed field (CCF), is basically a regular computed field with some fireworks.
It looks and acts much like a regular computed field, but has some extra parts that do some extra work. Fortunately, the extras are NOT complicated, and after reading this post, you will find that will you use CCFs frequently.
So what’s the difference?
- Application ID
- Application role or group
- Membership in an local server group, Active Directory (AD) group, or UNIX Group
- Access to the application’s share and/or folder on the server
- Database ID
- Database role, including access permissions (read/write)
- Other permission (from a home-grown application code or enterprise identify management system)
A computed field is a field in an ACL table that you create using expressions.
An ACL expression is similar to a Microsoft Excel formula [e.g., =SUM(A1:A2)] in that it contains at least one function [like SUM]. Excel formulas operate on cells (like A1 and A2), but computed fields operate on fields.
