title


In Deriscope terminology, a title is a text label that starts with the prefix # and is used at the top row (or leftmost column if the data are horizontally oriented) of the data held by an
Deriscope Object of type Set or Table
Its role is to identify the respective column (or row) so that the position of that column (or row) within the table becomes unimportant.

For example, a vertically oriented cash flow table always has a column with the title #PmtDate that contains the payment dates of the referenced cash flows.
A function may then read these payment dates off the whole cash flow table without worrying where in the table the respective column lies because the correct column is located by its title #PmtDate

A title may also include a suffix from the list
Value Unit enclosed in parentheses that specifies the unit of the corresponding entered numerical values.
For exammple, the title #Rate(%) indicates that the respective entered numbers are in percentage units, meaning that a number entered as 4 represents the number 4% = 0.04.
Deriscope always discards the entered value (eg 4) and retains the converted value (eg 0.04).
For this reason, the
Wizard displays the values held by the corresponding Set or Table object always in their converted form.
