NumericCount - script function

NumericCount() returns the number of numeric values found in the expression, as defined by a group by clause.

Syntax:  

NumericCount ( [ distinct ] expr)

Return data type: integer

Arguments:  

Argument Description
expr The expression or field containing the data to be measured.
distinct If the word distinct occurs before the expression, all duplicates are disregarded.

Examples and results:  

Add the example script to your document and run it. Then add, at least, the fields listed in the results column to a sheet in our document to see the result.

Example Result

Temp:

LOAD * inline [

Customer|Product|OrderNumber|UnitSales|UnitPrice

Astrida|AA|1|4|16

Astrida|AA|7|10|15

Astrida|BB|4|9|9

Betacab|CC|6|5|10

Betacab|AA|5|2|20

Betacab|BB||| 25

Canutility|AA|||15

Canutility|CC| ||19

Divadip|CC|2|4|16

Divadip|DD|7|1|25

] (delimiter is '|');

NumCount1:

LOAD Customer,NumericCount(OrderNumber) as NumericCountByCustomer Resident Temp Group By Customer;

Betacab
Canutility

NumericCountByCustomer

LOAD NumericCount(OrderNumber) as TotalNumericCount Resident Temp; The second statement gives:
TotalNumericCount
7

Given that the Temp table is loaded as in the previous example:

LOAD NumericCount(distinct OrderNumber) as TotalNumericCountDistinct Resident Temp;

TotalNumericCountDistinct
6
Because there is one OrderNumber that duplicates another, so the result is 6 distinct values.
