Help with Formula/ Beast mode to concat values based on unique key

Hi All,

I am trying to write a beast mode formula from the input table below:

to the output table

Basically I am trying to group by pickno and then group the code R into the column Reason and the code S into the column shipinstruction (combining the names and the reason or shipping instruction)..

Can you please help me here..I am attaching the excel sheet for your reference..

    I think you just have a syntax error. You should not have "as reason" in your case statement. The syntax for case in Domo is:

    CASE

    WHEN .... THEN

    ELSE

    END

    Otherwise, as long as your column names are valid, the formula should work (although you may want to add a space before 'reason' so that you have a space in the final value).

  • Hi All, Any help on this would be appreciated!

  • Is there a reason you need to do this in a beast mode? This would be easier to do in an ETL - you could use a formula tile to concatenate the names and reason and then the names and ship instruction, and then do a group by tile to group on pickno.

    You're not able to do this in a beast mode. You can use a GROUP BY tile in Magic ETL and tell it to separate the values by commas as your aggregation method.
