WhichMin

Description

td_which_min_sqle() function displays all rows that have the minimum value in specified input tbl_teradata column.

Usage

  td_which_min_sqle (
      data = NULL,
      target.column = NULL,
      ...
  )

Arguments

data

Required Argument.
Specifies the input tbl_teradata.
Types: tbl_teradata

target.column

Required Argument.
Specifies the name of the column in "data" to check the minimum value.
Types: character

...

Specifies the generic keyword arguments SQLE functions accept.
Below are the generic keyword arguments:

persist:
Optional Argument.
Specifies whether to persist the results of the function in a table or not.
When set to TRUE, results are persisted in a table; otherwise, results are garbage collected at the end of the session.
Default Value: FALSE
Types: logical

volatile:
Optional Argument.
Specifies whether to put the results of the function in a volatile table or not.
When set to TRUE, results are stored in a volatile table, otherwise not.
Default Value: FALSE
Types: logical

Function allows the user to partition, hash, order or local order the input data. These generic arguments are available for each argument that accepts tbl_teradata as input and can be accessed as:

  • "<input.data.arg.name>.partition.column" accepts character OR vector of Strings (character) (Strings)

  • "<input.data.arg.name>.hash.column" accepts character OR vector of Strings (character) (Strings)

  • "<input.data.arg.name>.order.column" accepts character OR vector of Strings (character) (Strings)

  • "local.order.<input.data.arg.name>" accepts logical

Note:
These generic arguments are supported by tdplyr if the underlying SQL Engine function supports, else an exception is raised.

Value

Function returns an object of class "td_which_min_sqle" which is a named list containing object of class "tbl_teradata".
Named list member(s) can be referenced directly with the "$" operator using the name(s):result

Examples

  
    
    # Get the current context/connection.
    con <- td_get_context()$connection
    
    # Load the example data.
    loadExampleData("tdplyr_example", "titanic")
    
    # Create tbl_teradata object.
    titanic_data <- tbl(con, "titanic")
    
    # Check the list of available analytic functions.
    display_analytic_functions()
    
    # Example 1: Display all rows that have the minimum value in 'age' column.
    obj <- td_which_min_sqle(data=titanic_data,
                             target.column='age')
    
    # Print the result.
    print(obj$result)
