Show Nodes Dialog

Show Nodes Dialog

The Show Nodes dialog displays a list of the linked nodes in your model. The dialog is slightly different depending on whether you are looking at spreadsheet links or database links. The Name column of the list box contains the names of the linked nodes.

Spreadsheet Linked Nodes

The Cell column contains the sheet and named cell to which the node is linked. The Link Type column indicates whether the node is a Metric node (data from the spreadsheet is retrieved by DPL), a Driver node (data from DPL is sent to the spreadsheet), a dummy node (no data is exchanged; dummy nodes document intermediate calculations in the spreadsheet), an initialization-linked node or a macro node.

Database Linked Nodes

The Table/query column indicates the name of the table or query in the database to which the node is linked. The NodeID column indicates the Node ID in the database to which the node is linked.

Multiple Entries for a Node

The Name column of the list box indicates whether the node has initialization links for probabilities (probs), values, or both. If a node has both types of initialization links then there will be two entries in the list for that node. If the node is also calculation linked, an entry will appear for that as well.

Note that database links are only available in DPL Enterprise and DPL Portfolio.

Go to Node: click this to go to the Node Definition dialog for the selected node.

Go to Cell: For spreadsheet linked nodes, click this to go to the cell in the spreadsheet to which the node is linked.

Versions: DPL Professional, DPL Enterprise, DPL Portfolio
