InputTable
Specifies either the name of the input table or view or an nPath query whose result is the input table. The input table contains the paths to analyze. Each path is a string of alphanumeric symbols that represents an ordered sequence of page views (or actions). Typically each symbol is a code that represents a unique page view.

If you specify an nPath query, it must select both the column that contains the paths (sequence_column) and the column that contains the number of times a path was traveled (count_column). It must also specify sequence_column in the GROUP BY clause, so that the input table has one row for each unique path traveled on a web site.

OutputTable
Specifies the name of the output table.
SeqColumn
Specifies the name of the input table column that contains the paths.
CountColumn
Specifies the name of the input table column that contains the number of times a path was traveled.
Hash
[Optional] Specifies whether to include the hash code of the output column node. Default: 'false'.
Delimiter
Specifies the single-character delimiter that separates symbols in the path string. Default: ',' (comma).
Do not use any of the following characters as delimiter (they cause the function to fail):
  • Asterisk (*)
  • Plus (+)
  • Left parenthesis (()
  • Right parenthesis ())
  • Single quotation mark (')
  • Escaped single quotation mark (\')
  • Backslash (\)
