Thee – I do like the nesting function, and I had to ‘untag’ many files that got automatically tagged with the Parent, then the child, then the child’s child. I didn’t want it so cluttered, so had to redo many TABBLES.
CAVEAT: be aware that I am a new user of TABBLES just trying to implement my own schema of Knowledge Management, i.e., ‘no expert’ at TABBLES.
Nonetheless, using your first screenshot: (RSFO)
* notice that all the TABBLES listed (on right) are tagged RSFO, as expected, and 2 are of Acietes and 4 of Migasa – BOTH are subs of SPAIN, subs of Buyers, subs of Company.
I suggest you drag Acietes ‘into’ Iraq. Refresh (click Workspace) and then try clicking RSFO again. – See what results.
Then tag 1 of those Aceites files with “Caribsat” – Refresh – See what results.
Remove Aceites from the file you just tagged with “Caribsat” – Refresh – See what results.
I think that will explain it, but if not:
Then tag any 1 of those 6 files with “CDRO” – Refresh – See what results.
Then tag a different 1 of those 6 files with “Cement” – Refresh – See what results.
I believe the TABBLES display routine (and only Maurizio knows for sure) tries to be efficient – to show the least possible necessary TABBLES. Sometimes the combination of Tabbles is such that it can seem inconsistent (and, in fact the routine may be random, but consistently so)
I tried a similar tagging/untagging routine on my own TABBLES setup – I was able to tag, nest, un-nest, untag, etc. several times with the same results.
Note that I found ‘refreshing’ necessary as the lag from my machine to SQL Server was sometimes quite slow (with over 250 TABBLES)
let me know what you find out.
