What is an Org Ref Code?
Numeric and Text based data displayed in a report can be translated from values held in the database to more meaningful values by adding a reference code to a dimension. This mapping is called Org Ref Codes.
Org Ref Codes should be used if:
- You wish to translate a value held in the data source into business terminology. For example, if male and female are stored as ‘M’ and ‘F’ you may want to translate these into ‘Male’ and ‘Female’.
- If you wish to apply customized sorting to a field. For example: Data returned in a query is usually displayed in Alpha / Numeric sort order. If your result set included: Admin Staff, Managers and Executive Management, your report may return results sorted alphabetically – Admin Staff, Executive Managers, Management. Hierarchically, your data may actually need to be ordered numerically – by the number associated with each type of employee, such as the total number of each type of employee, for example. This can be achieved by creating reference codes for the values and assigning a sort order to those codes.
