Data Groups, Linking and Access Types
What happens if the operator creates 2 EIs which update the same DETs in the same ILF? Does the software report this? If I want to create a link from a Process (EI) on the LH side, to an ILF on the RH side, and the EI updates *all* the DET of the ILF, can I select only the node of the ILF, without its DETs, or have I to select all the DETs? If the EI updates only 3 of 10 DETs, can I just select these 3 DETs? Do I have to link the Data Groups to my processes in order for them to be included in the count?
