Derived dimension from aggregate max values

Hi,

In my script I have loaded a table of data with each record representing details of an item number. Multiple items can exist on a job. Some of these items are pre-grouped into categories. See below example for 2 jobs (1000 and 1001).

Job NumberItem NoCategoryRevenue
10002000A100
10002001A300
10002002A50
10002003B400
10002004B200
10002005Null150
10012006A100
10012007B120
10012008Null300
10012009Null450

If an item has a category of Null, I would like to populate it with the category that currently holds the most revenue for that job.

E.g.

Job 1000:      Category A = 450, Category B = 600 so Item 2005 should have a value of "B" for Category.

Job 1001:      Category A = 100, Category B = 120 so Items 2008 and 2009 would both have a value of "B" for Category.

I need to do this in the script itself, creating a new field CategoryNew with values populated for all items.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks,

Adam

Re: Derived dimension from aggregate max values

Hello, I used this script:

Data:

Load * Inline [

Job Number,Item No,Category,Revenue

1000,2000,A,100

1000,2001,A,300

1000,2002,A,50

1000,2003,B,400

1000,2004,B,200

1000,2005,Null,150

1001,2006,A,100

1001,2007,B,120

1001,2008,Null,300

1001,2009,Null,450

];

Testing:

Load

[Job Number],

Category as Cat,

sum(Revenue) as Sum

Resident Data

where Category <> 'Null'

Group by [Job Number], Category;

Testing2:

Load

[Job Number],

firstsortedvalue(Cat, -Sum) as Category2

Resident Testing

where Cat <> 'Null'

Group by [Job Number];

Drop Table Testing;

LEFT JOIN (Data)

Load

  [Job Number],

  'Null' as Category,

  Category2

Resident Testing2;

Final:

Load

*,

if(Category='Null', Category2, Category) as CategoryNew

Resident Data;

Drop Table Data;

Drop table Testing2;

Drop field Category2 from Final;

Please find attached.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the response.

I've take a look and yes this works. FirstSortedValue function helps alot.

Thanks,
