RangeTab3:

LOAD recno() as RangeID, RangeCount(Field1,Field2,Field3) as MyRangeCount INLINE [

Field1, Field2, Field3

10,5,6

2,3,7

8,2,8

18,11,9

5,5,9

9,4,2

];

The resulting table shows the returned values of MyRangeCount for each of the records in the table.
RangeID MyRangeCount
1 3
2 3
3 3
4 3
5 3
6 3

Example with expression:

RangeCount (Above(MyField,1,3))

Returns the number of values contained in the three results of MyField. By specifying the second and third arguments of the Above() function as 3, it returns the values from the three fields above the current row, where there are sufficient rows, which are taken as input to the RangeSum() function.

Data used in examples:
