Entering a restriction into a map rule

About this task

If you want to enter a map rule that includes those restriction values, you can drag the restrictions from the Properties window into the Rule editor.

To enter a Restriction in a map rule:


  1. Select the rule cell where you want to insert the restriction.
  2. Right-click the item whose restriction or restrictions you want to enter, and click Show in Properties on the context menu. The Properties view appears.
  3. Drag the restriction you want into the Rule editor.

    The restriction appears in the Rule editor.


Dragging a restriction for an item with an Item Subclass of Text causes the restriction to be automatically enclosed in quotation marks in the rule.
