Description

The column element specifies additional conversion parameters for curvetables on a column by column basis.

Parents

These elements contain column: curvetable .

Children

The following elements can occur in column: NONE

Attributes

label

The name of the column that the parameters apply to. The parameters in this element will apply to the column with the matching name.

id

If specified will provide the ID value for the curve represented by this column. If not specified then the ID will be determined by the column label and pattern.

factor

If specified the scaling factor used to multiply data values.

forcezero

If specified the age at which the curve will intersect the z-axis.

ignore

If 'true' then do not convert this column in to a curve.

square

If the square attribute is specified the values will be flat-lined between vertices. In flat lining mode the values will remain constant until prior to the next inflection point. The numeric value of the square attribute will indicate how many years prior to the next inflection point where the additional flat-line point will be inserted. Use a value of 1 to have the flat-line point one year prior.

xscale

If specified a value to convert age values from periodic to years. The age value is first multiplied by xscale.

xshift

If specified a value to convert age values from periodic to years. The xshift value is added to the age value.
