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;

LOAD NumericCount(OrderNumber) as TotalNumericCount Resident Temp; The second statement gives:
TotalNumericCount
7
in a table with that dimension.

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 that are not duplicates..
