Hi All,

I am very confusing in the usage of HierarchyBelongsTo. Please give me an example.

Hierarchy

The hierarchy prefix is used to transform a hierarchy table to a table that is useful in a QlikView data model.

It can be put in front of a Load or a Select statement and will use the result of the loading statement as input for a table transformation.

The input table must be an adjacent nodes table.

Adjacent nodes tables are tables where each record corresponds to a node and has a field that contains a reference to the parent node. In such a table the node is stored on one record only but the node can still have any number of children. The table may of course contain additional fields describing attributes for the nodes.

The prefix creates an expanded nodes table, which normally has the same number of records as the input table, but in addition each level in the hierarchy is stored in a separate field. The levels in an expanded nodes table can easily be used e.g. in a pivot table and the path field can be used in a tree structure. More details about adjacent nodes tables and expanded nodes tables can be found in the section Hierarchies the QlikView Reference Manual.

Usually the input table has exactly one record per node and in such a case the output table will contain the same number of records. However, sometimes there are nodes with multiple parents, i.e. one node is represented by several records in the input table. If so, the output table may have more records than the input table.

All nodes with a parent id not found in the nodeid column (including nodes with missing parent id) will be considered as roots. Also, only nodes with a connection to a root node - direct or indirect - will be loaded, thus avoiding circular references.

Additional fields containing the name of the parent node, the path of the node and the depth of the node can be created.

The syntax is:

Hierarchy (NodeID, ParentID, NodeName, [ParentName], [PathSource], [PathName], [PathDelimiter], [Depth])(loadstatement | selectstatement)

where

NodeID is the name of the field that contains the node id. This field must exist in the input table.

ParentID is the name of the field that contains the node id of the parent node. This field must exist in the input table.

NodeName is the name of the field that contains the name of the node. This field must exist in the input table.

ParentName is a string used to name the new ParentName field. If omitted, this field will not be created.

PathSource is the name of the field that contains the name of the node used to build the node path. Optional parameter. If omitted, NodeName will be used.

PathName is a string used to name the new Path field, which contains the path from the root to the node. Optional parameter. If omitted, this field will not be created.

PathDelimiter is a string used as delimiter in the new Path field. Optional parameter. If omitted, ‘/’ will be used.

Depth is a string used to name the new Depth field, which contains the depth of the node in the hierarchy. Optional parameter. If omitted, this field will not be created.

Example:

Hierarchy(NodeID, ParentID, NodeName) LOAD

NodeID,

ParentID,

NodeName,

Attribute

FROM data.xls (biff, embedded labels, table is [Sheet1$];

HierarchyBelongsTo

The hierarchybelongsto prefix is used to transform a hierarchy table to a table that is useful in a QlikView data model.

It can be put in front of a Load or a Select statement and will use the result of the loading statement as input for a table transformation.

The input table must be an adjacent nodes table.

Adjacent nodes tables are tables where each record corresponds to a node and has a field that contains a reference to the parent node. In such a table the node is stored on one record only but the node can still have any number of children. The table may of course contain additional fields describing attributes for the nodes. More details about adjacent nodes tables and expanded nodes tables can be found in the section Hierarchies the QlikView Reference Manual.

The prefix creates a table containing all ancestor-child relations of the hierarchy. The ancestor fields can then be used to select entire trees in the hierarchy. The output table in most cases contains several records per node.

An additional field containing the depth difference of the nodes can be created.

The syntax is:

HierarchyBelongsTo (NodeID, ParentID, NodeName, AncestorID, AncestorName, [DepthDiff])(loadstatement | selectstatement)

where

NodeID is the name of the field that contains the node id. This field must exist in the input table.

ParentID is the name of the field that contains the node id of the parent node. This field must exist in the input table.

NodeName is the name of the field that contains the name of the node. This field must exist in the input table.

AncestorID is a string used to name the new ancestor id field, which contains the id of the ancestor node.

AncestorName is a string used to name the new ancestor field, which contains the name of the ancestor node.

DepthDiff is a string used to name the new DepthDiff field, which contains the depth of the node in the hierarchy relative the ancestor node. Optional parameter. If omitted, this field will not be created.

Example:

HierarchyBelongsTo (NodeID, ParentID, Node, Tree, ParentName) LOAD

NodeID,

ParentID,

NodeName

FROM data.xls (biff, embedded labels, table is [Sheet1$];
