Cross Reference ~ Custom Reference ~ Transformatio
« on: June 12, 2007, 08:45:25 pm »
You can add "Custom Refenece". In the help it is Cross Reference and when you use it, the created relationship will be "Transformation". In the Hierarachy window it's also represented as transformation. The only place in help regarding tjis functionality is Set Up References (Cross References).

Is this for "Custom References"? Then why the name "Transformation?"

Is this for "tranformations"? Then why the name "Custom References"

Does somebody use this feature? For what purpose?

The set up references can live side by side with transformation references.  They are unrelated.

You can think of the cross references described in the links as a see also.  Although they are created from the element that is being referenced.

If you're interested EA 7.0 will show these relationships in the hierarchy view.
