Target Property

Target Property

The
target
property identifies an occurrence of a data holder that may or may not already exist. If the occurrence exists, the component uses it. If the occurrence does not exist, the component creates it.
The value of the
target
property is a list containing one or more of the following components:
Target
Description
Locator
Identifies a single-occurrence or multiple-occurrence data holder. In the latter case, each iteration creates a new occurrence.
LocatorByKey
Identifies an occurrence of a multiple-occurrence data holder by an indexing key. If the occurrence does not yet exist, it is created.
LocatorByOccurence
Identifies an occurrence of a multiple-occurrence data holder by number. If the occurrence does not yet exist, it is created along with any needed intervening occurrences. For example, if four occurrences exist, and
LocatorByOccurrence
specifies the tenth occurrence, occurrences 5-9 are also created, but left empty.
