Viewing the Details of a Bad Record

Viewing the Details of a Bad Record

If you know what caused a record to fail, you can take corrective action on the data. You can view the details of a bad record for value tests, unique tests, and set tests in the Bad Records view.
  1. Run a test.
  2. In the
    Tests
    tab of the details area, click the test.
    If the test failed, the properties area includes a
    Bad Records
    view.
  3. Click the
    Bad Records
    view.
    If the test evaluated strings, a
    Show Delimiters
    option appears in the upper-right corner of the properties area. If the test evaluated numerical values, a
    Show Differences
    option appears.
  4. To view the details of a bad record, select the
    Show Delimiters
    or
    Show Differences
    option.
    Delimiters appear to help you identify whitespace in string data.
