Ability to write an expression over created field!

Hi!

As per data shown, I have created CR_MONTH after renaming CREDIT_NOTE_DATE. If I write an expression using CR_MONTH instead original filed which is CREDIT_NOTE _DATE how possible it is?  I may show you the expression written  which is as follows!

if (CR_MONTH<>TR_MONTH,1,0) as [Flag Different CR_TR_MONTH],

Hope some body may help me out.

Thanks

Neville

The script will fail because the field CR_MONTH will only exist after the reload of the table is complete. So for the same table, your expression should look like instead:

If(Month(CREDIT_NOTE_DATE) <> Month(PERIOD_FROM), 1, 0) AS [Flag Different CR_TR_MONTH]

Or do a preceding load.

Once you do this, later in the script, then yes, you can use CR_MONTH as a field.

You can't do like above, But you may need this?

Note - If it throws error then you need to identify all the fields over preceding load because of Unique keys

Load *,

if (CR_MONTH<>TR_MONTH,1,0) as [Flag Different CR_TR_MONTH];
