This topic discusses application of the Transform panel with Tables
on a binary field in a table.
See the Transform
panel and Transform
Templates topics for use and for links to lists of templates
for other data types for tables and use of the Transform panel with other
components, such as Drawings
and Images.

Tables, Datetime Type

Compose
WKB

Provides a way
to extract geometry from a Manifold geometry type, a geom,
into a well known binary representation of the geometry, WKB.
Given a geom field
create a WKB binary value for that object.

Example: Take the Geom
field and use Compose WKB
to put into BinaryValue.

Copy

Copy the source
field into the target field.

Maximum
Value

Take the maximum,
that is the greater value, of either the source field or the comparison
field and save into the target field.

Minimum
Value

Take the minimum,
that is the lesser value, of either the source field or the comparison
field and save into the target field.

Parse
Base64 String

Takes a base64-encoded
string that encodes a binary value, retrieves the binary value
and saves it into the target binary field.

Parse
Hex String

Takes a hexadecimal-encoded
string that encodes a binary value, retrieves the binary value
and saves it into the target binary field.

Text
Compare Key, Intl

Given a string
generates a binary representation of the text, capturing the specified
international options including the specified language. The
binary representations of the text can then be compared to each
other to determine if a string is less than or greater than (meaning,
comes before or comes after in dictionary order) another string.

Notes

There are 10 kinds of people in this world: Those who understand binary,
and those who don’t.
