Thread: Transpose data

  1. #1

    Default Transpose data

    I have an excel file that I have the information in this form:
    Name:  C1.PNG
Views: 219
Size:  1.4 KB
    I need to implement the online column that is like that,
    Name:  C2.PNG
Views: 223
Size:  1.5 KB
    I use the step "Row-normalize" but I did not get to have the good result

    What could possibly go wrong with Row-Normalizer after simply hitting "Get- fields"?
    Since you want to map all field values to the same "new field", there's not much to think about, too.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Default transpose of source data

    Reviving two years old thread.

    If source data is :-

    Art A B C
    x 1215 1216 1852
    y 12 13 16

    Then it is not getting transposed in true sense (by following normalizer setup given in previous reply). Output from normalizer:-
    key value
    Art x
    A 1215
    B 1216
    C 1852
    Art y
    A 12
    B 13
    C 16

    Expected output is :-

    key value1 value2
    Art x y
    A 1215 12
    B 1216 13
    C 1852 16

    The idea is to create one column for every row (in source excel data) including header. Can anyone help me, here?

    Because your expected output is re-denormalized.

    Remove the Art from the Normalize step.
    That gives you output like:

    typefield Art value
    A x 1215
    B x 1216
    C x 1852
    A y 12
    B y 13
    C y 16

    However, since you want to denormalize the data on typefield, you need to sort on that.

    Then you can feed it into a denormalizer step with Key of Art, Group of typefield, and Target fields of x and y.

    Hi - many thanks for your answer. It worked! I didn't realized that it is a case of normalizer and then denormalizer. Thanks for helping me out.
