ColumnsID property
Starting with UNICOM Intelligence Professional 5.6 you can define column IDs as a string using the ColumnsID property. Each character in the string is used to allocate a column ID, with a period or space character used to indicate that an ID should not be allocated. A character needs to be added to the ID's string for each column, even if the column is hidden. When allocating column IDs a character should also be added for the base columns.
Column proportions test with new column IDs
For the table below, the column IDs could be set as follows to test Yes-Male against No-Male, and Yes-Female against No-Female:
Table.Statistics.ColumnIDs = "....MF.NG"
Table.Statistics.TestColumns = "M/N, F/G"
This graphic is described in the surrounding text.
Column IDs are only applied to visible table elements. Hidden elements are not taken in consideration when defining a Column IDs as a string.
