Operators (PEL)

In PerformancePoint Expression Language (PEL), operators let you perform the following actions:

  • Change data, either permanently or temporarily.

  • Search for values or objects that meet a specified condition.

  • Implement a decision between values or expressions.

  • Test for specific conditions before you run a rule.

You can build an expression by using operators to combine several smaller expressions. In these complex expressions, PEL evaluates the operators in order based on the same definition of operator precedence that is used by Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Analysis Services (SSAS). PEL performs operations with greater precedence before it performs operations with lower precedence.

PEL implicitly converts an object to a different type when that object is used in an expression that requires a different type. For more information, see the topic Type conversions (PEL).

PEL supports the operators listed in the following table.

In This Section

  • Assignment operators
    Assign a value to a variable, or associate a result set column with an alias.
  • Logical operators
    Test for the truth of a condition, such as AND, OR, NOT, and XOR.
  • Range operators
    Perform an operation that returns a set of members with a specific endpoint or endpoints.
