Combining 4 rows into 1 on a dataset




We use Google Analytics and I have pulled in data from 4 segments.  The data in the table gives 4 rows per day with a column for the segments (there are 4) and another column for my other metric.  I would like to combine the segment name and metric data to a column (ie...'segment name' as the column header with the value being the metric...revenue or sessions) for each segment creating one row.  Any thoughts?


Thank you

    You can try this in MySQL Dataflow:


    SELECT CASE WHEN `Segment_name` = ' Segment_1'  THEN `Value` AS Segment_1,

                  CASE WHEN `Segment_name` = ' Segment_2'  THEN `Value` AS Segment_2,

                  CASE WHEN `Segment_name` = ' Segment_3'  THEN `Value` AS Segment_3,

                  CASE WHEN `Segment_name` = ' Segment_4'  THEN `Value` AS Segment_4

    From your_dataset_name


    If I correctly understood your question just replace `Segment_name` with the column name that contains the segment name on the original dataset, Value with the column name that contains the segment value on the original dataset, Segment_1, Segment_2,.... with your segment names and your_dataset_name with the name of your original dataset.


    Tell me how it goes.

    Ricardo-Thank you for the reply.  


    I used the ETL Dataflow function to uncollapse columns and get the new ones all created.


    I appreciate your answer and will reference in the future.


    Thank you,
