VIReC Corporate Data Warehouse

Querying CDW Meta Views

by Margaret Gonsoulin, PhD
Seminar date: 5/23/2018

Description: Querying CDW Meta Views is the latest in VIReC’s Corporate Data Warehouse (CDW) Series; it is aimed at new users who have recently gained access to data in the CDW. It will guide new CDW users through the process of locating the views beginning with "meta" schema inside the warehouse. Then it will explore the columns in the meta views that allow for users to search for: descriptions of a specific CDW column, fields capturing data on a chosen subject, whether a specific VistA field/file has been brought into CDW, and information on linking keys.
