D toc


Generates the variance of values by group in a column that meet a specific condition.


NOTE: When added to a transform, this function is applied to the current sample. If you change your sample or run the job, the computed values for this function are updated. Transforms that change the number of rows in subsequent recipe steps do not affect the values computed for this step.

For more information on how the platform calculates variance, see VAR Function.

D code

pivot value: VARIF(testScores, ((testScores > 0) && (testScores < 90)) group:studentId limit:1

Output: Generates a two-column table containing the unique values for studentId and the variance of the testScores column for that studentId value when the testScores value is between 0 and 90. The limit parameter defines the maximum number of output columns.

ArgumentRequired?Data TypeDescription
