Component range

A component range can be specified for any component. A component range defines the number of consecutive occurrences of that component. The range (s) represents some or any number greater than one.

When a component is selected, the component name is displayed in the rule bar. Click in the rule bar after the component name to type the component range.

The range is displayed in parentheses immediately after the component name. The range is two numbers separated by a colon. The first number indicates the minimum number of consecutive occurrences of that component. The second number indicates the maximum number of consecutive occurrences of that component. The syntax of the component name and range is:

Component (MIN:MAX)

To enter a range after a component name, type in the rule bar or use the Set Range command.

The maximum component range is 2147483647.

Whenever a component has a range, each occurrence of that component may be referred to as a "member" of a series. The words "occurrence" and "member" are used interchangeably in the documentation.
