Re: Reply value wich is in the same column

Hi Axel,

Assuming you have the 'Example 1' description as the first row in your table, you could try something like this:

fakedata:

load * Inline

[

  CODE,DESCRIPTION

  102030,abcde

  EXAMPLE1,abcde

  10424,abcde

  EXAMPLE2,skdfslk

  11234,sdkf

  32809, lsksj

  94385,klajlkfj

];

NoConcatenate

Load

  RowNo() as Id,

  CODE,

  DESCRIPTION,

  if (WildMatch(CODE,'EXAMPLE*'),CODE,peek(Teste)) as Teste

Resident fakedata;

drop table fakedata;

Since there's nothing to compare in the columns, I would assume you have some structure that the first row has the defining CODE, in this case 'Example 1'.

Attached the file I used.

Felipe.

Re: Reply value wich is in the same column

Hi Axel,

It just searches for the previous row in the table and gets the value.

The 'teste' is just the name of the field i've used, so it would look while loading the field 'Teste' for the previous 'Teste' value in the table.

Something like the below table
