Generic

The generic prefix unpacks a tall table, creating one field per attribute value. This is similar to pivoting a table, except that it results in a separate table per field created.

Syntax:  

Generic( loadstatement | selectstatement )

 

Tables loaded through a generic statement are not auto-concatenated.

Example:  

Table1:

Generic LOAD * INLINE;

[

Key, Attribute, Value

Bob, Jan, 100

Bob, Feb, 200

Bob, Mar, 300

Kate, Jan, 400

Kate, Feb, 500

Kate, Mar, 600

];

Result:

This will result in 3 tables:

Table1.Jan:

Key, Jan
Bob, 100
Kate, 400

Table1.Feb:

Key, Feb
Bob, 200
Kate, 500

Table1.Mar:

Key, Mar
Bob, 300
Kate, 600
