Documentation on fixed encoding


#1

The following syntax :

TEXT ENCOD**ED** DICT(16)	2	Max cardinality 64K
TEXT ENCOD**ED** DICT(8)	1	Max cardinality 255

should be corrected in:

TEXT ENCOD**ING** DICT(16)	2	Max cardinality 64K
TEXT ENCOD**ING** DICT(8)	1	Max cardinality 255

Hi,what does max cardinality mean?I don’t understand.

Max cardinality means the maximum allowable unique values in that field. So if you have a billion records and all values in a column/field have either the values ‘Moe’, ‘Curly’ or ‘Larry’, then the cardinality of that column is 3.
