Excerpt

Computes the mode (most frequent value) from all row values in a column, according to their grouping. Input column can be of Integer or Decimal type. 

  • If a row contains a missing or null value, it is not factored into the calculation. If the entire column contains no values, the function returns a null value.
  • If there is a tie in which the most occurrences of a value is shared between values, then no value is returned from the function.
  • When used in a pivot transform, the function is computed for each instance of the value specified in the group parameter. See Pivot Transform.

For a version of this function computed over a rolling window of rows, see ROLLINGMODE Function.
