SummaryDefines concealment rules that will be available locally in SuperCROSS.
Default Location

The concealment rules for a dataset will automatically be read from the confid.ini file located in the directory specified by the [DBPath] for this dataset in ssii.ini. If there is no [DBPath] specifically set for this dataset, SuperCROSS will look for the file in the [DefaultDBPath] directory.

All of the following sections are optional. They only need to be included in the file if you want to use that type of rule.

[Rules]

This section defines concealment rules that will be available in SuperCROSS for this dataset, in the following format:

<rule_name>=a,b,c

Where:

<rule_name>
The name of the rule that will be displayed in the drop-down list in SuperCROSS.
a,b,c

The rule components:

  • The first parameter represents a cell value cut off. For example, if it is 3 all cells with a value of 3 or less will be concealed.
  • The second two parameters work together to form a dominance rule, where a cell is concealed if c% of its value is contributed by b or fewer contributors.

 

For example:

RuleThis Rule will Conceal...
3 Rule=3,0,0
Any cell with a value of 3 or less.
80% Rule=0,2,80
Any cell where the 2 largest contributors make up 80% or more of the total cell value.
3/80 Rule=3,2,80
Any cell where the value is 3 or less, or the 2 largest contributors make up 80% or more of the total cell value.

It is also possible to combine multiple components within a single rule. Simply enclose each set of components within brackets. You can have up to 10 sets of components within a single rule.

For example:

RuleThis Rule will Conceal
85/90 Rule=(0,2,90)(0,1,80)
Any cell where the 2 largest contributors make up 90% or more of the total cell value, or the 1 largest contributor makes up 80% or more of the total cell value.

The following is an example of a [Rules] section:

[Rules]
2 Rule=2,0,0 
3 Rule=3,0,0 
80% Rule=0,2,80 
3/80 Rule=3,2,80 

[SXV4Rounding]

This section defines rounding rules for this dataset, and forces them to be on, as an alternative to setting these by recoding the summation options in SuperCROSS.

This section uses the following format:

<dataset_id>=<rounding_method>

Where:

<dataset_id>
The ID of the dataset that this rule applies to. Use * instead of an ID to apply a default rounding method to all datasets that are covered by this confid.ini file but are not otherwise specified.
<rounding_method>

The method to apply to this dataset:

0No rounding (default)
1Random rounding
20-3 rounding
3Graduated rounding
41-4 rounding

See Recode Reference - SuperCROSS for details of each rounding methodology.

For example:

[SXV4Rounding]
bank=2
fin=1
people=4
*=3
