Discussion Board for collaboration on QlikView Scripting.
I have been struggling with the problem for a couple of weeks now
I am a novice at Qlikview and just unable to get this right
I need to work out the top sequence of Pitch Type for the 1st 3 Pitches
I have attached a sample data file
I use Pitch Count to determine order of Pitches
1--0 or 0--1 = 1st Pitch
1--1,2--0,0--2 = 2nd Pitch
Strikeout,3--0,2--1,1--2 = 3rd Pitch
However, the Pitch count column is empty when the Batter makes contact with the ball. As a result, Pitch Result has a value 'Ball in Play'
So when this happens, Pitch Count is empty and could equal 1st, 2nd or 3rd pitch
I need to determine the most common Pitch Type sequence for the 1st 3 pitches (i.e Fast Ball, Change Up, Screw Ball)
Please could someone help as this is a really important stat for Baseball and Softball
Go to Solution.
Still unsure about the required logic since I don't really know baseball.
if([Game Pitch Result] = 'Ball in Play',
Rangesum(SUBFIELD([Pitch Count],'--',1),SUBFIELD([Pitch Count],'--',2))
) as Pitch,
RowNo() as RowNo
LOAD [Pitchers Name],
[Game Pitch Result],
(txt, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, delimiter is ',', msq);
I haven't really understood what you want to do with the 'Ball in play' case (there are also other cases, like 'Walk' or 'Hit by pitch' in [Pitch Count] field.)
You can start with this
LOAD *, RANGESUM(SUBFIELD([Pitch Count],'--',1),SUBFIELD([Pitch Count],'--',2)) as Pitch;
Then create a straight table chart with Pitch as dimension, and
Thank you, the expression works
However, when the Pitch Result column has the value ''Ball in Play'', the expression does not take into account the Pitch Type as this Pitch Count column is empty and hence show 1 less pitch
Great. It works
