IBM Planning Analytics Tips & Tricks: Ways to Skip a Record Using a TI Process

IBM Planning Analytics Tips & Tricks Series

Did you know there are two different ways to skip specific records when you are running TurboIntegrator scripts?

ItemSkip is used to skip a specific record. This is often nested within an IF statement and used when you want to simply ignore a record. Here is an example of skipping a record if a variable called vValue is negative:

            IF ( vValue < 0 );

                 ITEMSKIP;

            ENDIF;

As you can see, there are no parameters to this command. You use this by simply telling Planning Analytics to skip the record.

If, however, you want to skip the record and create a record in the error log then you can use the ItemReject command. This command allows you to customize the message that appears in the log. Here is an example of rejecting the same record using ItemReject.

            IF ( vValue < 0 );

                 ITEMREJECT (‘The value is less than zero.’);

            ENDIF;

It’s up to you to determine how you want to skip records.
