Spectre Build Breaks Object

The Spectre Breaks object identifies break levels in the input flow.

A break level is a set of rows that have identical values for a set of break columns. The Breaks object creates up to four new columns that describe the position of each row in the break level. This action allows subsequent calculations to process a row of a break column knowing whether it is the first or last row of the break level.

A combination of a Breaks object, persistent calculated fields, and a Filter object can recreate the functionality of the Squash object. For more information, see Spectre Build Squash Object.

It is DI best practice to sort data before it is passed to the Breaks object to ensure full functionality.

The Breaks object has Closedthree panes where you can set attributes and other details.
