Returns the cumulative sum within a given group.

Function type

Vector only




Argument Type Description
G any A space- or comma-separated list of column names

Rows are in the same group if their values for all of the columns listed in G are the same.

If G is omitted, all rows are considered to be in the same group.

If any of the columns listed in G contain N/A, the N/A value is considered a valid grouping value.

S integer The name of a column in which every row evaluates to a 1 or 0, which determines whether or not that row is selected to be included in the calculation

If S is omitted, all rows will be considered by the function (subject to any prior row selections).

If any of the values in S are neither 1 nor 0, an error is returned.

O integer A space- or comma-separated list of column names that determine the row order within a particular group

If O is omitted, the order is the current display order of the table.

If any of the values in O are N/A, an error is returned.

X integer or decimal A column name

An N/A in X is treated like a 0.

Return Value

For every row in each group defined by G and ordered by O (and for those rows where S=1, if specified), g_cumsum returns a decimal number corresponding to the sum of X for all rows up to and including that row.

If no rows in a group have valid (non-N/A) values for X, the result for every row of the group is 0.

Sample Usage

<base table="pub.doc.samples.ref.func.g_func_time_series_sample_usage"/>
<willbe name="g_cumsum_1" value="g_cumsum(state;include;order;value)"/>
<willbe name="g_cumsum_2" value="g_cumsum(state city;include;order;value)"/>

Additional Information

  • The t_ version of this function defaults the G argument and omits the S argument.┬áThe default for G is set at table load time based on the organization of the table.
