am working of creating a table that contains all the information needed about a visit on adobe analytics . this table will be used further for analytics purposes .

I was checking the form and reading in the communities and i saw for many metrics calculation excluding

 hit_source NOT IN (5, 7, 8, 9) 

is essential
