  • When the EXACT addition is used, the assignment rules for flat structures are the same as those for deep structures. It is not possible to make assignments between structures and elementary data objects.

  • No additional content checks are made before assignments are made for compatible structures. If the source structure contains invalid data, this data is assigned to a compatible target structure, even when the EXACT addition is used.
