Peek with Dates

Hi All,

I am unable to understand vMinDate,vMaxDate values with peek function.

Please explain. Thanks in advance.

Rates:

LOAD Currency,Rate,date(Date) as Date INLINE [

Currency,Rate,Date

010001-227,56255,5/28/2015

010005-227,652000,5/28/2015

010007-316,65522,5/28/2015

010007-353,88820,5/28/2015

010001-227,1000000.00,5/29/2015

010005-227,3500000.00,5/29/2015

010007-316,2500000.00,5/29/2015

010007-353,33967452.00,6/1/2015

];

TempTable_Rates:

Load Date, Rate Resident Rates ;

MinMaxDate:

Load Min(Date) as MinDate, Max(Date) as MaxDate resident TempTable_Rates;

Let vMinDate = Peek('MinDate',-1,'MinMaxDate') - 1;

Let vMaxDate = Peek('MaxDate',-1,'MinMaxDate')   ;

   

Join (TempTable_Rates)

Load Date(recno()+$(vMinDate)) as Date Autogenerate vMaxDate - vMinDate;

   Rates:

     NoConcatenate Load Date,

          If( IsNull( Rate ), Peek( Rate ), Rate ) as Rate

          Resident TempTable_Rates

          Order By Date ; /* so that above values can be propagated downwards */

     Drop Table MinMaxDate, TempTable_Rates;

HI,

Please check below for explanation

MinMaxDate:

Load Min(Date) as MinDate, Max(Date) as MaxDate resident TempTable_Rates;  // Loads min and max dates in the table in MinDate and MaxDate columns (Only 1 record is loaded into the MinMaxDate table)

Let vMinDate = Peek('MinDate',-1,'MinMaxDate') - 1;   //Peek returns the last read value, so in the MinMaxtable the Mindate field will have only one value ie. Mindate in the TempTable_Rates table.  You will get the Minvalue and you are subtracting 1 to get the previous date

Let vMaxDate = Peek('MaxDate',-1,'MinMaxDate')   // Peek returns the Maxdate in the MinMaxDate table and assigns it to the variable.

  

Join (TempTable_Rates)

Load Date(recno()+$(vMinDate)) as Date Autogenerate vMaxDate - vMinDate;   // Here you are generating the Master Calendar from Mindate to Maxdate.

Hope this helps you.


Regards,

Jagan.

Hi jagan

Thank you for explanation.

Hi Jagan,

is it correct that for this table

Let vMinDate = Peek ('MinDate', -1, 'MinMaxDate') has the same output as

Let vMinDate = Peek ('MinDate', 0; 'MinMaxDate')

as it only has one record and the pointer was at 1 after loading?

I am trying to understand the logic.
