Data Subset Extraction Using a Combined Data Element

In this tutorial, you change the selection criteria in the RI METHOD you created in the tutorial Data Subset Extraction Using Referential Integrity to use a combined data element. This is a more realistic portrayal of what you will do with RI methods - that is, supply initial criteria to the lead table to drive the referential integrity constraints throughout your method.

A combined data element is essentially a "dummy" data element that you create for ease of use when it comes to manipulating classes. Once a combined data element is created, you can perform operations against the data element like you would for other elements.

This tutorial walks you through the data classification and the data subsetting phases. In this session, subsetting is based on a combined data element.
