    UStat - Overlapping Data: How is it calculated and what is the impact?

    • Article Type: Q&A
    • Product: Alma

    Question

    Loading a file to UStat causes:

    "The following overlapping data was found"

    How does UStat determine overlap of data?

    Answer

    The overlapping check ensures that unique combination consists of Owner + Subscriber + Platform + Publisher + Measure Type + Date.

    The overlapping analysis doesn't look at Titles (journals).

    Additional Information

    The new file which has overlapping data will only overwrite the overlapping data.

    For example, if 3 journals exist both in the input file and in the already loaded data, only this 3 journals data will be overwritten by the new file.

    The rest of the journals data will not be touched.
