Filling a sequence - using 1st and last entry

Hi Qlikheads,

I am currently trying to recon 3 years worth of sales. I have already imported all sales by serial number into a qlikview document, but now I need to see where each serial number was shipped to. The shipments file I have received has the first and last serial number of each shipment, but not the middle values.

The data is in an excel file and looks like this:

   

TSTAMPDESTINATIONSERIALNOLASTINRANGE
Sep/139372910002071588910002271587
Sep/137629920001711543920001711562
Oct/135591960000062807960000072806
Oct/137890900000967163900001087162

What i need to do is match the serial number to the correct shipment so that I can return the destination for each serial number.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

You can do something like below

Data:

LOAD

TSTAMP,

DESTINATION,

SERIALNO,

LASTINRANGE,

SERIALNO+iterno()-1 as FILLED_SERIAL

FROM table

while SERIALNO+iterno()-1 <= LASTINRANGE;

Note : There will be a performance impact if the Data is huge.

If you do not have a pattern in creating the serial no you will not be able to create the numbers.  if you do have a pattern having the first and last digit please explain how this pattern can be developed

Thanks
