## Cumulative sum in Load Script

Hi All,

Hopefully an interesting one.

I need to calculate the number of months a line has a negative incurred, but cumulatively.

An example of the data would be:

ID Month Incurred

1 Jan-18 1000

2 Jan-18 500

3 Jan-18 -20

4 Jan-18 35

5 Jan-18 60

6 Jan-18 -300

1 Feb-18 1500

3 Feb-18 -20

4 Feb-18 -65

5 Feb-18 1500

6 Feb-18 -300

1 Mar-18 1500

3 Mar-18 -20

4 Mar-18 -65

5 Mar-18 1500

6 Mar-18 100

1 Apr-18 -100

2 Apr-18 -150

5 Apr-18 1550

6 Apr-18 -30

So I want a formula that would work out the number of months the ID has had a negative Incurred as below:

ID Month Incurred Months Negative

1 Jan-18 1000 0

2 Jan-18 500 0

3 Jan-18 -20 1

4 Jan-18 35 0

5 Jan-18 60 0

6 Jan-18 -300 1

1 Feb-18 1500 0

3 Feb-18 -20 2

4 Feb-18 -65 1

5 Feb-18 1500 0

6 Feb-18 -300 2

1 Mar-18 1500 0

3 Mar-18 -20 3

4 Mar-18 -65 2

5 Mar-18 1500 0

6 Mar-18 100 0

1 Apr-18 -100 1

2 Apr-18 -150 1

5 Apr-18 1550 0

6 Apr-18 -30 1

This is what my script looks like so far for the table.

[Negative Incurred Agg]:

[Line ID], //Links to main data table

[Line ID] as [Neg Incurred Line ID], //Allows field to be used when not linked to main table.

[Neg Transaction Month],

[Negative Incurred],

[Negative Incurred Last 12 Months],

[Negative Incurred Last 18 Months],

IF ([Negative Incurred]<'0','1','0') as [Negative Incurred Count]

;

[NegIncLineID] as [Line ID],

[TrMonth] as [Neg Transaction Month],

lastvalue([NegIncurred]) as [Negative Incurred],

If([TrMonth] > Date(MonthStart('\$(vCalendarThisMonth)', -12)) and [TrMonth] <= Date('\$(vCalendarThisMonth)'), 1,0) as [Negative Incurred Last 12 Months],

If([TrMonth] > Date(MonthStart('\$(vCalendarThisMonth)', -18)) and [TrMonth] <= Date('\$(vCalendarThisMonth)'), 1,0) as [Negative Incurred Last 18 Months]

Group by [NegIncLineID],[TrMonth]

;

[NegIncLineID],

date(monthend([TrMonth]),'MMM YYYY') as [TrMonth],

[NegIncurred]

;

ID as [NegIncLineID],

TrDate as [TrMonth],

Incurred as [NegIncurred]

resident MissingDatesData;

I was thinking possibly a peek using the negative incurred count field?

try this:

TempTable:

Incurred,

Month,

if (Incurred < 0, 1, 0) as FlagIncurred //every negative Incurred gets a Flag; we use this to sum them up

;

Table:

if(peek(ID)=ID, if(not Peek(Month) = Month, peek(runningIncurred) + FlagIncurred, peek(runningIncurred)),FlagIncurred) as runningIncurred, //this counts every month only once

if(peek(ID)=ID, peek(runningIncurred) + FlagIncurred, FlagIncurred) as runningIncurredMultiple //this counts month multiple times

order by ID //, Month /* you have to sort by month, but it has to be a date field. */

Thank you. This worked really well. I had to tweak it slightly as I wanted it to reset back to zero when it was no longer negative.
