Previous first row

Hi,

I have a problem building a flag in script. I have use previous and get a correct output, expect first row.

Here is my table.and this is for changeflag if(previous(dimension)=dimension  ,0,1)

What I want is to get a 1 on the first row With a New Dimension. I think that the first 1 will be there because previous find null and compare it With the first row.

Any trix to avoid this scenario?

Hi,

I think you'll have to use a calculated dimension

for example is like this.


=if(field2='field2value',field1)


Is that good or not?

Hi Kevin,

this is in script not in a pivot.

Hi Staffan,

maybe this

if(previous(dimension)=dimension  or RowNo()=1 ,0,1)

Regards,

You can perhaps just try putting rowno()=1 check like:

if(if rowno()=1 or previous(dimension) <> dimension  ,1 , 0)
