here is the new code:

[DataNew1]:

"Impact month"

12

];

let vImpact_Month= Peek('Impact month',0,DataNew1);

TRACE \$(vImpact_Month);

for i=1 to 10

for x=1 to 4

if \$(i) =1 then

test:

\$(i) as Month,

\$(x) as Month2,

\$(vImpact_Month) as Value

AutoGenerate 1;

ELSE

test:

\$(i) as Month,

\$(x)+(\$(i)-1) as Month2,

\$(vImpact_Month) as Value

AutoGenerate 1;

ENDIF

Hi,

Try this:

for i=1 to 10

for x=1 to 4

if \$(i) =1 then

test:

\$(i) as Month,

\$(x) as Month2,

12 as Value

AutoGenerate 1;

ELSE

test:

\$(i) as Month,

\$(x)+(\$(i)-1) as Month2,

12 as Value

AutoGenerate 1;

ENDIF

NEXT x;

NEXT i;

==> create a pivot table with Month and Month1 as dimensions and sum(value) as expression

Yes i have a loaded table which is [DataNew1]

Now i want to Resident this in the script what you suggested but I am not able to put   Resident [DataNew1];  in the script .

Where should i write Resident [DataNew1];  in the above script ? I mean after End if or after Autogenerate or ....?

Champion

I used Autogenerate because I started with your script..

but you can't use resident with autogenerate.

you must know: if you want to generate the MONTHS/Value table or the table already exists on the model.

the best you can do is to attach your App if there is no private data.

Hello ,

[DataNew1]:

"Product Line",

"Impact month",

FROM [lib://AttachedFiles/Complexity_Mix.xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, header is 1 lines, table is Model);

For i=1 to 10

For x=1 to 4

if \$(i) =1 then

test:

\$(i) as Month,

\$(x) as Month2,

"Impact month"    I need this "Impact month"  field from [DataNew1]:  (Impact month has value 12)

//           12 as Value

AutoGenerate 1;

ELSE

test:

\$(i) as Month,

\$(x)+(\$(i)-1) as Month2,

"Impact month"    I need this "Impact month"  field from [DataNew1]:  (Impact month has value 12)

//           12 as Value

AutoGenerate 1;

ENDIF

NEXT x;

NEXT i;

So how do I get this "Impact month"  field in the loop ?

Champion

I should modify the script to add another column with an autogenerate..

can you show what is the expected result with this new column ?

because I'm already generating 2 months columns

Ok !

If you see initially what we did in the script is

'' 12 as Value ''

This value 12 is actually in the field named as [Impact Month ]

So rather than mentioning 12 as Value  , I wanted to  include Field [Impact Month ] in the script .

Bcoz now it has value 12 , 2moro it may have some other value so as to make it more dynamic .

And [Impact Month ] is in the 1st Table named as [DataNew1]:

So was trying to use Resident , But i am not able to

Thnx

here is the new code:

[DataNew1]:

"Impact month"

12

];

let vImpact_Month= Peek('Impact month',0,DataNew1);

TRACE \$(vImpact_Month);

for i=1 to 10

for x=1 to 4

if \$(i) =1 then

test:

\$(i) as Month,

\$(x) as Month2,

\$(vImpact_Month) as Value

AutoGenerate 1;

ELSE

test:

\$(i) as Month,

\$(x)+(\$(i)-1) as Month2,

\$(vImpact_Month) as Value

AutoGenerate 1;

ENDIF

NEXT x;

NEXT i;
