Dataset ID

Every dataset function in vCalc equations and constants requires an ID that identifies the dataset to be used.  Using a dataset from within your equations and constants opens a lot of possibilities and power to the equations and constants that you create.

In all of the function calls listed in the next articles, you will see "String uuid".  This is the identifier.  You can see and copy the dataset ID in the wiki for the the dataset. You can also go to the dataset listing in the equation or constant editor Algorithm Tab and drag and drop the dataset name onto the row number column on the left side of the editor text window. This will insert a line of code that includes the ID of the selected dataset.TableDragDrop.png                                      Drag and Drop Table ID in Equation Editor
