Count of a dimension during Load?

Hi ,

I am trying to achieve the following but I am not sure what i am missing:

Dataset1:

  

Incident NumProblem Description
1439236715breakdown
1237487985Shortage
1777691588Hold
1742593921Stopped

DataSet2:

Veh NoStatusLine
M00-236715OngoingL1
M00-487985StartedL1
M00-691588CompleteL1
M00-593921CompleteL2
M00-605891StartedL2
M00-695587CompleteL2
M00-505381OngoingL1
M00-256265OngoingL1
M00-278909CompleteL2

So, I am trying to extract left 6 digits from the problem description from dataset 1 as 'Veh No' and count the number of incidents for each of  'Veh No' . After I get the number of incidents for each Veh No, i want to map to to Dataset2.

My Script:

Dataset1:

Mapping Load Left(Problem Description,6) as Veh No,

          Count(Incident Num) as Incidents

    

From Dataset1

Group by Left(Problem Description,6);

Datset2:

Load  Right(Veh No,6) as VehNo,

          Status,

           Line,

           ApplyMap('DataSet1', Right(Veh No,6),'NF') as IncidentCount

From Dataset2;

Results should be:

   

Veh NoStatusLineCount
236715OngoingL12
487985StartedL12
691588CompleteL13
593921CompleteL23
605891StartedL23
695587CompleteL23
505381OngoingL13
256265OngoingL13
278909CompleteL22

         

However,  My result table looks like the following:

   

Veh NoStatusLineCount
236715OngoingL11
487985StartedL11
691588CompleteL11
593921CompleteL21
605891StartedL21
695587CompleteL21
505381OngoingL11
256265OngoingL11
278909CompleteL21

I am not sure what i am missing.

Can someone help ?

Do I need to use Resident Load or Preceding Load.. ..if So, kindly suggest.

Thanks,
Vidya

Re: Count of a dimension during Load?

Hi,

Your data changed a bit, so im changing the code a bit

Dataset:

load

[Incident Num],

mid([Problem Description],7) as [Problem Description],

left([Problem Description],6) as [Problem Number];

LOAD [Incident Num],

     [Problem Description]

FROM

(txt, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, delimiter is ',');

Dataset2:

LOAD [Veh No],

     Status,

     Line

FROM

(txt, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, delimiter is ',', msq);

left join (Dataset2)

Load

[Problem Number] as [Veh No],

1 as [Count Number]

Resident Dataset;

And for the graph, de-select the "Suppress Zero-Values". This will show the other values, like so:

Re: Count of a dimension during Load?

Hi Vidya,

I used the following code:

load

[Incident Num],

mid([Problem Description],7) as [Problem Description],

left([Problem Description],6) as [Problem Number];

LOAD [Incident Num],

     [Problem Description]

FROM

(txt, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, delimiter is ',');

LOAD [Veh No],

SubField([Veh No],'-',2) as [Problem Number],

     Status,

     Line

FROM

(txt, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, delimiter is ',', msq);

Which got me the result you wanted, as shown below:

Re: Count of a dimension during Load?

Hi Felip,

This answers my problem to some extent.

So, usually I have more data  for Veh No in Dataset2 and therefore I will have more ProblemNumbers in DataSet2.

If I use the above logic, it is basing Problem Number coming from Dataset1 as basis and it would avoid some problem numbers form Dataset2.

Example Dataset:2

DataSet2:

   

Veh NoStatusLine
236715OngoingL1
487985StartedL1
691588CompleteL1
593921CompleteL2
605891StartedL2
695587CompleteL2
505381OngoingL1
256265OngoingL1
278909CompleteL2
278910CompleteL2
505382OngoingL1
695588CompleteL2

Resulting Dataset:

Veh NoStatusLineCount
236715OngoingL12
487985StartedL12
691588CompleteL13
593921CompleteL23
605891StartedL23
695587CompleteL23
505381OngoingL13
256265OngoingL13
278909CompleteL22
278910CompleteL20
505382OngoingL10
695588CompleteL20

Going by the code you gave me, It will only give the following:

   

Veh NoStatusLineCount
236715OngoingL12
487985StartedL12
691588CompleteL13
593921CompleteL23
605891StartedL23
695587CompleteL23
505381OngoingL13
256265OngoingL13
278909CompleteL22

Any ideas how to fit them in the resulting table?

Thanks,

Vidya

Re: Count of a dimension during Load?

Which chart you are using? Did you uncheck supress 0 values from presentation tab?
