Bad Records for Single-Table Constraint Tests

Bad Records for Single-Table Constraint Tests

When you select a test on the Tests tab, the records that fail a test appear on the
Bad Records
view.
The Bad Records view displays a delimiter before and after each string value to help you identify whitespace in a record of string data type. Data Validation Option uses the following formula to calculate the percentage of difference:
(<larger value> - <smaller value>) ÷ <larger value> * 100
Different columns appear on the
Bad Records
view based on the test.
Aggregate Tests
Aggregate tests do not display bad records. The
Results
view displays the test result value.
VALUE, FORMAT, NOT_NULL, and NOT_BLANK Tests
These tests display the following columns for each bad record:
  • The key or expression for the field
  • The field value
UNIQUE Tests
UNIQUE tests display the field values that are not unique.
If you upgrade to Data Validation Option release 9.6.0 from release 9.5.2 or earlier, you must reinstall a test if you want to view more details about bad records for the test.
