Filter on yes/no field created from another field

I'm trying to create a yes-no field that I can use in a filter within my app. I'm ending up with duplicate rows. The point of the app is to provide a way for people to filter IDs that are in db#1 based on whether or not they exist in db#2. Here's a sample dataset that mimics the raw data I'm working with:

ID, dbnum, dbID

1, 1, EX4502

1, 2, 68465832

2, 1, VM640

3, 1, DX1201

3, 2, 49674828

4, 2, 3857393837

5, 1, VX12

Here's how I'd like to transform the data:

ID, db1ID, db2ID, Has_db2ID

1, EX4502, 68465832, Yes

2, VM640, , No

3, DX1201, 49674828, Yes

4, , 3857393837, Yes

5, VX12, , No

Here's the load query I'm using:

SET cYES = Dual('Yes', 1);

SET cNO = Dual('No', 0);

DB2:

LOAD

    ID,

    If(dbnum = '1', dbID) as db1ID

FROM [file]

(qvd)

WHERE match(dbnum, '1');

left keep LOAD

    ID,

    If(dbnum = '2', dbID) as db2ID,

    If(db = '2', $(cYES), $(cNO)) as Has_db2ID

FROM [file]

(qvd)

WHERE match(dbnum, '2', '1');

I end up with data that looks and behaves like this:

ID, db1ID, db2ID, Has_db2ID

1, EX4502, , No

1, EX4502, 68465832, Yes

Within a table that displays the data, if I filter by ID = 1 I get multiple rows as above. I have a map in my app that lights up for ID = 1 when I filter for both yes and no values for Has_db2ID (after I load this data I'm also loading geospatial & other data that contains ID).

I've tried with resident loads, concatenating & other ways of creating the yes/no field, but still got the same result (or introduced other issues that still didn't get rid of the extra row). I need a data model that gives me one row per ID. Thanks for any advice!

Re: Filter on yes/no field created from another field

Try this may be:

Table:

LOAD * Inline [

ID, dbnum, dbID

1, 1, EX4502

1, 2, 68465832

2, 1, VM640

3, 1, DX1201

3, 2, 49674828

4, 2, 3857393837

5, 1, VX12

];

TempTable:

LOAD ID,

  dbID as db1ID

Resident Table

Where dbnum = 1;

Join (TempTable)

LOAD ID,

  dbID as db2ID,

  'Yes' as Has_db2ID

Resident Table

Where dbnum = 2;

FinalTable:

NoConcatenate

LOAD ID,

  db1ID,

  db2ID,

  If(IsNull(Has_db2ID), 'No', Has_db2ID) as Has_db2ID

Resident TempTable;

DROP Table Table, TempTable;

Re: Filter on yes/no field created from another field

Seems close, but it's not retaining the 'yes' values for Has_db2ID. It gives me only this result:

1, EX4502, , No

And cuts this result, which is the one I need:

1, EX4502, 68465832, Yes


Experimenting with the If(IsNull... line in FinalTable to see if I can make it work.

Is this not the output you are looking for? I got this using the same script I provided above

Re: Filter on yes/no field created from another field

Yep, you're right. Your file does it perfectly.

In my app, I was limiting some of the data on ingest, and it was causing the issue. I think I"m all set now.

Thank you, Sunny T! Much appreciated.
