Description

<=>

Copy bidirectional

 Copies in either direction, the changed Property value of an Operand to the second Operand overwriting existing data

<=

Copy item 2 to item 1

Copies the Property value of Operand 2 to Operand 1 overwriting existing data

>=

Copy item 1 to item 2

Copies the Property value of Operand 1 to Operand 2 overwriting existing data

<>

Copy bidirectional if null

Copies in either direction, the Property value of either Operand  to the other Operand when the one Operand property value is null.  If data already exists in either Operand the copy function cannot be used as no overwriting of existing data is allowed.

<

Copy item 2 to item 1 if null

Copies the Property value of Operand 2 to Operand 1 only if the Property value of Operand 1 is Null.  If data already exists in Operand 1 the copy function cannot be used as no overwriting of existing data is allowed.

>

Copy item 1 to item 2 if null

Copies the  Property value of Operand 1 to Operand 2 only if the Property value of Operand 2 is Null.  If data already exists in Operand 2 the copy function cannot be used as no overwriting of existing data is allowed.

No copy function is selected

Rule manager does not validate that the two properties in the consistency rule are of the same data type.  Attention should be paid to the property data types so that you do not create a rule that might lead to the wrong results.  For example, a rule that copies a length property into a power property.
