Quality flag

Jump to: navigation, search

Each single numeric value in an import file can be quality flagged with symbols as listed below. Insert the symbol at the beginning of a value without a blank in between. Values without any symbol are qualified as being valid.

Quality flags with Symbol (examples in brackets):

  • no symbol = valid (default)
  • ? = questionable (?0.345)
  • / = not valid (/23.56)
  • * = unknown (*0.999)
  • # = individual definition (#999)
  • > = larger than (>123.7)
  • < = less than (<123.7)

The new data warehouse interface additionally uses the following (new) quality flags to mark values generated by pre-processing (e.g. averaging):

  • ø = averaged value (ø1.123)
  • ± = standard deviation of averaged value (ø1.123±0.123)

In exported files, converted with Pan2Applic, the quality flags will be converted to those used by other applications.
