You use the REPORTIF or SELECTIF exception keywords to specify how to filter the EDS data by exception.
The REPORTIF (or RIF) exception keyword filters the data just before the interval is actually printed. For instance, you can use the REPORTIF and COMBINE keyword together to filter multi-interval displays. In this case, COMBINE processing is done first—the multiple collection records are averaged, and the intervals are combined. Then RIF processing is done. For more information on the COMBINE command, see “Miscellaneous Keywords” on page 84.
SELECTIF (or SIF) exception filtering is done at the RMF interval level, rather than at the multi-interval level.
REPORTIF and SELECTIF can be viewed in this way: REPORTIF reports data after it has been combined into multi-intervals. EPILOG combines all data, and then the REPORTIF keyword filters the data. SELECTIF determines whether the data will be selected for inclusion in a multi-interval.
SIF and RIF give exactly the same results unless you are combining RMF intervals. As long as you request single-interval displays, it does not matter which keyword you use.
The following flowchart shows the differences between SIF and RIF.
