Definition: 

A member of the BaseRecordLayout substitution group intended for use with archival formats of NCube Instances or mixed NCube and microdata (i.e., a set of NCubes where the case identification is not described as a dimension of the NCube) held in an external file with fixed or delimited locations for data items arranged as one-dimensional rows. In addition to the link to the PhysicalStructure provided by BaseRecordLayout, the record layout is this namespace (m1) identifies the character set and array base for the stored data, a full description of any microdata (individual variable) structured data items, and a full description of each data item contained within an NCube Instance including a link to its description (matrix address) and its physical location in the record.

Property: 
NameCardinalityDatatypeDescription
CharacterSet
0..1
Character set used in the data file (e.g., US ASCII, EBCDIC, UTF-8). This is a required field.
ArrayBase
0..1
Sets the array base for any arrays used in the definition (that is, whether the first value is in position 0 or 1, etc.). This may be the data array in a delimited data file or the measure array for measures that are bundled and stored in a single location. Array base is generally set to either 0 or 1. There is no override provided as systems processing a record would use a consistent array base.

DataItem
Use for variables that have content in the data file but are not part of an NCube structure, such as case identification variables, or situations where the primary record content is microdata but NCube structured data has been added (such as aggregated data on the City or State where the case is located). Includes a reference to a variable, and information about its data item location and its data type/format.
