The Work with Classes area lets you manage classes by categorizing data element with homogeneous characteristics and by writing generalized routines to check data.
A class identifies a user-defined group of data element with homogeneous characteristics. Typical classes of data can be quantities, prices, client code, totals, or currency flags. Each data element can be cataloged as a member of a class.
Classes are grouped into sets called Super Classes. A Super Class gathers several different classes in a single set. During the class automatic assignment phase, this type of classification enables you to restrict the search for classes to a subset of all the defined classes.
The set of Super Classes is as follows:
Date classes are defined by four available formats so you can run a formal check on the validity of the date fields. For more information about the format of dates, see Getting Started With Data Builder
