Hi Pablo,

If I'm understanding you correctly, you are just looking to get the aggregated sum by Field1, Date, and Name, correct?

Then you'd want to write your load script as:

Table1:

LOAD

     Field1,

     Floor(Date) as Date,

     Field2,

     Name

FROM sourcefile.xls;

Table2:

LOAD

     Field1,

     Sum(Field2) AS SumTotal

RESIDENT Table1

GROUP BY Field1,Name,Date;

Here you need to use Floor(Date) so that you get a whole number, without decimals. Otherwise you'd be grouping the date down to the last decimal place which will not work.

I hope that helps!

Hi Serina,

Thank you for your reply:

I had already been grouped so but with this formula date(Left(Date,10),'DD/MM/YYYY') This gave me just date format and no TimeStamp, the problem that my formula and your method reach the same result, and that is a very high data should show 750 and shows 73,436,650 ... I do not know why the number ... When I add a Distinct to the sum, I lower the result to 300 ...

Without Distinct The number increase a lot...

Hi Serina,

Floor(FechayHora) as Fecha      **********    here i do your line script ************

Its just a Historical QVD from sep2017 - apr2018

Where Date(FechayHora) >= '10/02/2018' And Date(FechayHora) < '11/02/2018';

So brings me just 10/02/2018. After that i do this:

NoConcatenate

Temp_1: //QVD Resident (Toda la data consolidada)

LOAD

Branch,

Fecha,

Nombre,

Sum(Field) as Field,

Pais

Resident Temp_2

Group By Branch,Nombre,Pais,Fecha;

Drop Table Temp_1;

Must bring

Branch 1 750

Branch 2 100

Actually brings:

Branch 1 73.436.650 (Weird)

Branch 2 100 (Correct)

Look,

I just load the first table. Then I create a Pivot table where i Put

Sum(Field1)

Total = 73.436.750 (so weird)

If I do Sum(Distinct Field1)

Total = 850 (that is Correct)

Why sum Increase too much???

When a try to put sum(Distinct Field1) as Field1 in the group by table,

The result

Total = 400 (Incorrect)

Can you share your script where you getting this 73.435.650? I mean expression?

Try like

ExcelLd:
LOAD Field1, Date,Field2, Name, DateField;
LOAD *, Num#(Date) AS DateField;
LOAD Field1,
Date#(Date) AS Date,
Field2,
Name
FROM

(
ooxml, embedded labels, table is [Group By]);


Final:
LOAD
Date(DateField, 'MM/DD/YYYY hh:mm:ss') As DateField1,
Sum(Field2) as Value
Resident ExcelLd
Group By DateField;
 
Drop Field DateField;
