Update (clsMiningModel)

SQL Server 2000

Update (clsMiningModel)

The Update method of an object of ClassType clsMiningModel saves the mining model along with its Columns collection to the repository.




The mining model object to update.


For mining models of SubClassType sbclsOlap, the Update method checks to see whether the Columns collection is empty. If it is, the method automatically populates the Columns collection based on the structure of the source cube before saving to the repository.

By default, only the Column object that corresponds to the CaseLevel property of the mining model is enabled; the CaseLevel is the same as the level object from the SourceCube of the mining model, and it provides the cases for the model. Users can then select and enable other columns by setting the IsDisabled property of the Column objects to False.

Creating an OLAP Mining Model

The following example creates an OLAP mining model without explicitly assigning any columns to the model. The Update method then automatically builds the structure of the Columns collection based upon the source cube's architecture and sets their IsDisabled properties to True. The example then enables some of the columns and makes the UnitSales column predictable.
