Column(s) to be Split irng

Input

Range

<active>

Specify the input data range, should be one or multiple data column(s).

Subgroup Method method

Input

int

0

Choose a method to subgroup, works together with the nrows variable (i.e. N will be the value defined by nrows).

Option list:

  • every:By Every Nth Row{0}
    Every Nth row will be considered as a group. For example, if nrows is 3, there would be 3 groups, the first group has the data from rows 1, 4, 7 ... 1 + 3 * M, the second group has the data from rows 2, 5, 8, ... 2 + 3 * M, and so on.
  • seq:By Sequential N Rows{1}
    The sequential N rows will be considered as a group. For example, if nrows is 5, the data from row 1 to row 5 will be the first group, from row 6 to 10 will be second group, and so on.
  • ref:By Reference Column{2}
    Rows will be grouped accroding to reference column (ref variable) and split method (split variable) specified by user.
N nrows

Input

int

2

Specify the N value used in method variable. Based on the subgroup method chosen (method variable), it has different meanings.

Reference Column ref

Input

Column

<unassigned>

Specify the Reference Column when method variable is set to By Reference Column(ref).

Split split

Input

int

0

Specify the split method when method variable is set to By Reference Column(ref).

Option list:

  • sep:By Separator{0}
    Specify a separator in the reference column to split the source column into multiple columns.
  • int:By Interval{1}
    Specify the start value and interval to divide the ranges, the data within same range will be a subgroup.
Separator Value sep

Input

string

<Blank or Missing>

Specify the separator when split by separator.

Rows Meet Condition match

Input

int

0

Specify the meet condition when split by separator.

Option list:

  • remove:Remove{0}
    Each row with separator will be removed from output result.
  • begin:Begin of New Block{1}
    Each row with separator will be the head of new block.
  • end:End of Current Block{2}
    Each row with separator will be the tail of current block.
Treat Consecutive Rows as One consecutive

Input

int

0

Specify whether to treat consecutive rows as one in meet condition.

Interval interval

Input

double

2

Specify the interval value when split by interval.

Start Value start

Input

double

0

Specify the start value when split by interval.

Sort by Reference sort

Input

int

0

Specify whether to sort each group by value of reference column in output result when split by interval.

Output rd

ReportData

[<input>]<new>

Specify where to output the result, see syntax here.
