RecNo - script function

This script functions returns an integer for the number of the currently read row of the current table. The first record is number 1.

Syntax:  

RecNo( )

 

In contrast to RowNo( ), which counts rows in the resulting QlikView table, RecNo( ), counts the records in the raw data table and is reset when a raw data table is concatenated to another.

Example: Load script

Raw data table load:

Tab1: LOAD * INLINE [A, B 1, aa 2,cc 3,ee]; Tab2: LOAD * INLINE [C, D 5, xx 4,yy 6,zz];
 

Loading record and row numbers for selected rows:

QTab:

LOAD *,

RecNo( ),

RowNo( )

resident Tab1 where A<>2;

 

LOAD

C as A,

D as B,

RecNo( ),

RowNo( )

resident Tab2 where A<>5;

 

//We don't need the source tables anymore, so we drop them

Drop tables Tab1, Tab2;

The resulting QlikView internal table:
