## wildmatch

hi all,

is their a way to have multiple conditions in wildmatch

for ex: the data as below

account,

transtype,

transmovement

amount

]

for the above table i would like to group as following

if(WildMatch(transtype,'*101','*102','*103','*104'),'N-P customer ',

if(WildMatch(transtype,'*99','*98'),'N-P-N customer ',

if(WildMatch(transtype,'*89'),'Unknown customer ', - here need an additional condition --saying that transtype should be 89 starting with and transmovement is 500 and 511

)) as Customer Group

May be this:

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*101','*102','*103','*104'),'N-P customer ',

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*99','*98'),'N-P-N customer ',

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*89') and Match(transmovement, 500, 511),'Unknown customer ')) as Customer Group

Hi sunny ,

there is a small chnage.

if(WildMatch(transtype,'*99','*98'),'N-P-N customer ',

if(WildMatch(transtype,'*89'),'Unknown customer ',Others' - So here for rest of  the transtype starting with and transmovement should be 500 and 511

it is rest of the others .. there are more than 60-70 transtype codes..but should limit to transmovement be 500 and 511

that is the reason i have put 'others' after

if(WildMatch(transtype,'*89'),'Unknown customer ',Others'

I think above is the logic you required.

But keep in mind that there might be records for which this expression will return NULL, i.e. records with unspecified [Customer Group].

Just wondering if this is what you want, given the fact that you already have to classses 'unknown customer' and 'Others', so I would expect to use one value to catch everything else, so selecting all classes from [Customer Group] won't remove records.

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*101','*102','*103','*104'),'N-P customer ',

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*99','*98'),'N-P-N customer ',

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*89'), 'Unknown customer',

If(Match(transmovement, 500, 511), 'Others','N/A')))) as [Customer Group]

But maybe that's not required here...

Hi Both,

It gives output few data.. but Iam waiting from the customer feedback whether the data and calculations  are correct or not .

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*101','*102','*103','*104'),'N-P customer ',

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*99','*98'),'N-P-N customer ',

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*89'), 'Unknown customer',

If(Match(transmovement, 500, 511), 'Others')))) as Customer Group

can you also tell me how to make wildmatch again based on this output

for ex:

f(WildMatch([Customer Group],'*N-P '),'Customers ',

If(WildMatch([Customer Group],'*Unk '),'Unidentified

))) as Customer main Group

i tried to add this in a new resident load statement .but i dont get any values.

May be this in the preceding load:

If(WildMatch([Customer Group], 'N-P*'), 'Customers ',

If(WildMatch([Customer Group], 'Unk*') as 'Unidentified')) as [Customer Main Group];

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*101','*102','*103','*104'),'N-P customer ',

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*99','*98'),'N-P-N customer ',

If(WildMatch(transtype,'*89'), 'Unknown customer',

If(Match(transmovement, 500, 511), 'Others')))) as Customer Group

FROM/Resident;
