Hi All,

Hope you are doing well!.. I am trying to get the count of distinct combination of ordno and partno by ordate ..Please find the input table below:



The output table that I am trying to get to is


Can you please help me with the beast mode for this..Also attached the excel file...

    Hi @ozarkram

    I'd recommend configuring a date dimension dataset to easier track YOY differences / comparisons. I've done a write up on this topic in the past which you can find here: https://dojo.domo.com/discussion/53481/a-more-flexible-way-to-do-period-over-period-comparisons#latest


    You can then utilize a beast mode to count the distinct combinations. I'm concatenating 'ordno' and 'partno' strings to the values in the off chance order number and part number potentially overlap (i.e. O# BC12 / P# 213211 vs O# BC122 / P# 13211 would be the same values even though they're separate)

    COUNT(DISTINCT CASE WHEN `Period Type` = 'Current' THEN CONCAT('ordno', `ordno`, 'partno', `partno`) END)
    


    COUNT(DISTINCT CASE WHEN `Period Type` = 'Last Year' THEN CONCAT('ordno', `ordno`, 'partno', `partno`) END)

  • Hi @GrantSmith : Thank you so much for your response! I am stuck at this step :


    This code will work for Magic 1 or Magic 2. Just cope the code in the code block below and then use Command+V (Mac) or Control+V (Windows) to paste the code into your Magic ETL palette. You will need to define the input dataset and the output dataset.

    When I try to copy the above in the clipboard nothing happens..Can you please help here..

  • Thank you so much @GrantSmith !..Really appreciate your help!

  • hi, i am stuck in this step too, where should I paste the code?

  • When you have Magic ETL open, you dont need to select any tile. Just press paste and the code will automatically add all of the tiles for you.
