Enrichment Worksheet

With Enrichment you can efficiently merge data from external sources into the model by setting property values to objects that match a given criteria. You can add as many Enrichment Worksheets into the workbook as you like and they will be processed if the name of the Worksheet starts with 'Enrichment'. Each Enrichment Worksheet can contain as many Enrichment sections as you wish.

Each Enrichment section must be formatted like this.

NOTE: The easiest way to get this right is to copy and paste the sample section on the Enrichment worksheet.

Insert the name of the Object Class or Group on Column C on the row where Column B has the text 'Object or Group [+]' (Cell C4 in the picture above).

New in simplebim 6.1. Use the special value '[GROUP]' as the 'Object or Group [+}' to set the values of the properties of a group. In this option the match property is always the name of the group and the operator in Match (case insensitive).

Define one Match property by giving a property name or key. This property is used for finding the objects for which the other properties are set. The match property must be a Text property. The Match operator can have the following values.

Match Operators Description
Equals Must be the same text
Contains Must contain the text
Starts With Must start with the text
Ends With Must end with the text
Like Using wildcards
Match Using regular expression
Not Equals Must not be the text
Not Contains Must not contain the text
Not Starts With Must not start with the text
Not Ends With Must not end with the text
Not Like Using wildcards
Not Match Using regular expression

The format for the Operator in a Match cell is ’Match=<Operator>’, for example ‘Match=Equals’. If the Operator is mixed case the match will be case sensitive, otherwise case insensitive.

Examples Case Sensitive
Match = equals No
Match = EQUALS No
Match=Equals Yes

All whitespace (spaces) is trimmed from the Operator, for example ‘Starts With’ is the same as ‘StartsWith’.

Define as many Set properties (Operator = Set) as you wish by giving a property name or key. If needed simply add new properties on column F, G, H and so on. These are the properties for which the values are set. Set properties can be of any data type (text, number, measure…). Do not leave any empty columns in between.

You can also define Info properties (Operator = Info) that are not processed but could help you better understand the data or save you the trouble of deleting columns you don’t want to include. Info columns can be used between Set columns.

On the rows below the header (containing the Object Class and Properties) add as many rows as you wish. Each row must have a value for the Match Property and optionally values for the Set Properties. Do not put any value into the cell on column B, because column B is reserved for use by the system.

NOTE: If you set measure value, please pay attention to the Template Units.
