Summary0000120: Create a binairy fact with subtype indications
DescriptionPerforming a GLR on a structure containing subtypes, a table may be created containing several of these conceptual subtypes. However, which subtype a record represents is no longer clear.

Analists are adviced to add a binary fact type expression which may hold the subtypes indication in the DBMS. It is than up to the DBA to decide to keep it or not.

It would be great to have CaseTalk generate this column with a value constraint limited to either of the subtypes contained in the table. This takes a load of the shoulders of the analist. And makes it more intuïtive to work with the conceptual info, without the need to remember these special operations.
