Tile Tool

The Tile tool assigns a value (tile) based on ranges in the data. It does this based on the user specifying one of 5 methods.

Two fields are appended to the data. Tile number is the assigned tile of the record. Tile sequence number is the record number of the record's position within the Tile.

Configuration Properties

Grouping Fields
