spec_type_to_derivations: Spec to derivation

spec_type_to_derivationsR Documentation

Spec to derivation

Description

Creates the derivation table from a list of datasets (optionally filtered by the sheet input). The named vector cols is used to determine which is the correct sheet and renames the columns. The derivation will be used for "derived" origins, the comments for "assigned" origins, and predecessor for "predecessor" origins.

Usage

spec_type_to_derivations(
  doc,
  cols = c(derivation_id = "ID", derivation = "[D|d]efinition|[D|d]escription"),
  sheet = "Method|Derivations?",
  var_cols = c(dataset = "[D|d]ataset|[D|d]omain", variable = "[N|n]ame|[V|v]ariables?",
    origin = "[O|o]rigin", predecessor = "[P|p]redecessor", comment = "[C|c]omment")
)

Arguments

doc

Named list of datasets @seealso read_all_sheets() for exact format

cols

Named vector of column names. The column names can be regular expressions for more flexibility. But, the names must follow the given pattern

sheet

Regular expression for the sheet name

var_cols

Named vector of the name(s) of the origin, predecessor and comment columns. These do not have to be on the specified sheet.

Value

a dataset formatted for the metacore object
