|Volume data type|
The data type Volume a volume measurement.
The TDE data types for quantifiable data (numeric values with units of measure) are all stored as double and are handled similarly for template scripting.
Since every quantifiable data type is stored as double, be sure to account for that when you test equivalency (for example, 1 may actually be stored as 0.999999). Either round off the values being compared, or use ranges for the comparison.
liter or L — default
cubic meter or m^3
cubic foot or ft^3
US gallon or gal
US fluid ounce or fl oz
US quart or qt
US pint or pt
imperial gallon or imp gal
milliliter or ml
cubic inch or in3
Data from TDE defaults to the first unit listed for each data type. In the [Output] section, you can convert these values to the units you need:
[Output] TripFuelQuarts(qt) = input.TripFuelUsed # converts liters to quarts
The effective range of this data type is: 0 to 1,000,000,000 L
You can access the valid units of measure as fields:
."US fluid ounce"
Use square brackets and double quotes around TDE units of measure that contain spaces. For example: row.TotalFuelUsed["US gallon"]. Otherwise, you can use dot notation, such as row.TotalFuelUsed.milliliter.
