Grouping issue with file


Hi

I'm trying to group some records together. I have the following

 

JESTPR:

LOAD
OBJNR As JestOBJNR,
STAT As ProjectStatus

FROM

(
qvd)

The field STAT has multiple records to each record in OBJNR

STAT has a record called 'I0046' and if the record is equal to this then I want to call it 'OPEN' return it with the field OBJNR

If the field is not equal to 'I0046' then I want to group together the records and call them @CLOSED and return it with the field OBJNR

Hi,

then just modify your LOAD with a new calculated field, like

>> LOAD OBJNR, STAT, IF(STAT='I0046','OPEN', '@CLOSED') as Status ... <<

Re: Grouping issue with file

Are those the only codes involved?

JESTPR:

LOAD

OBJNR As JestOBJNR,

STAT As ProjectStatus,

If(STAT = 'I0046', 'Open', 'Closed') As OpenState

FROM

(qvd);

If there are more codes to interpret, you might want to use a mapping table.

Re: Grouping issue with file

Thanks

But the issue is that there are many different codes that will define CLOSED status and I want to group them together to display CLOSED against one OBJNR

e,g

So I need to group all of the projectStatus codes to show 1 record of CLOSED against OBJNR PR0000002

JestOBJNRProjectStatusStatus
PR00000002E0001@CLOSED
PR00000002I0001@CLOSED
PR00000002I0002@CLOSED
PR00000002I0005@CLOSED
PR00000002I0028@CLOSED
PR00000002I0042@CLOSED
PR00000002I0045@CLOSED
PR00000002I0082@CLOSED
PR00000002I0295@CLOSED

Re: Grouping issue with file

In the front end, create a table with JestOBJNR and Status as dimensions, and wherever metrics you require in the expressions. The two dimension values will only be displayed once.

If there is no other data in your source table, then do this:

JESTPR:

LOAD DISTINCT

OBJNR As JestOBJNR,

If(STAT = 'I0046', 'Open', 'Closed') As OpenState

FROM

(qvd);

Re: Grouping issue with file

It seems like you want to create per record per OBJNR per status:

If so, you can accomplish this either in the front end or in the load script with another preceding load statement:

Re: Grouping issue with file

Hi

No that doesn't work

I need to end up with an open or closed status against each OBJNR

if STAT = 'I0046' then the record should show Closed

However if the record isnt 'I0046' there can be many other codes that represent OPEN status and I need to group these together against 1 OBJNR

Re: Grouping issue with file

Well that is exactly what that script does -  the DISTINCT will collapse all the Closed lines into a single line.

Re: Grouping issue with file

Yes understand but see the example below.

I want to be able to show 1 JestOBJNR record that has an open or closed status

Closed status will always be 'I0046' but there will be other status recorded against the OBJNR

if 'I0046@ isnt present then the status is closed but I only want one record

THe DISTINCT logic worked to the point where it gave me 1 record for open and 1 for closed against the same OBJNR

Re: Grouping issue with file

something like this?

JESTPR:

LOAD

OBJNR As JestOBJNR,

STAT As ProjectStatus,

If(STAT = 'I0046', 'Open', 'Closed') As OpenState

FROM

(qvd);

NoConcatenate

JESTPR1:

LOAD OBJNR As JestOBJNR,Concat(ProjectStatus,',') as TotalProjectStatus,OpenState

Resident JESTPR

group by JestOBJNR,OpenState;

drop table JESTPR;
