RowNo - script function

This function returns an integer for the position of the current row in the resulting Qlik Sense internal table. The first row is number 1.

Syntax:  

RowNo( [TOTAL])

 

In contrast to RecNo( ), which counts the records in the raw data table, the RowNo( ) function does not count records that are excluded by where clauses and is not reset when a raw data table is concatenated to another.

Note: If you use preceding load, that is, a number of stacked LOAD statements reading from the same table, you can only use RowNo( ) in the top LOAD statement. If you use RowNo( ) in subsequent LOAD statements, 0 is returned.

Example: Data 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 Qlik Sense internal table:
