    Need to compare Row values and decide the count in 9.1 version

    Deva S



      I am new to tableau, working on a bar chart , that should show the count of insert and delete record count, while showing the count I need to apply a logic based on that my input should taken into account and

      produce the corresponding output.


      Below given is  the sample input, I need the output, should display Insert count as 1 for a key field till it hits the first delete and after that regardless of insert record till it finds the next delete record count should be 2 so on.


      Could you please help me to get this logic in tableau.


      Note: Insert_count and Delete_count in the sample data columns are given for understanding and I don't have that in the input columns. Key field, Time stamp and Action are the only input columns.



      ABC9/12/2017 0:32Insert10
      ABC9/12/2017 0:32Insert10
      ABC9/12/2017 0:44Insert10
      ABC9/12/2017 0:45Delete11
      ABC9/12/2017 0:32Insert21
      ABC9/12/2017 0:32Delete22
      XYZ9/12/2017 0:44Insert32
      XYZ9/12/2017 0:45Insert32
      XYZ9/12/2017 0:32Insert32
      XYZ9/12/2017 0:32Delete33
      Expected Output
      Total Insert Record Count3
      Total Insert Record Count3


      Thanks a ton in advance!

          Hello Deva,


          Am I understanding this correctly the idea is to have a bar graph displaying the sample data. But in the actual data table there are only 3 columns. Keyfield, TimeStamp and Action. Then the two additional measures that we want to create is based off of the discount of 'Insert' or 'Delete' commands for each keyfield?
