Running a "Report"

7 posts in this topic

Looking for ideas on best practices to run a "report" on data values.  Specifically, I just want to take an array and produce a report that counts all of the occurrences of a string value.  For example, if the array were something like this:

U5L4
U5L4
U5L4
U6L5
U4L12

The reports would produce something like this:

U5L4    3
U6L5    1
U4L12   1

Any help is appreciated.  Thanks!

litlmike,

I would do it like this:

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aList[] = ["U5L4", "U5L4", "U5L4", "U6L5", "U4L12"]

; Convert list to string - use double delimiters to prevent partial matches
$sList = "||" & _ArrayToString($aList, "||") & "||"

; Get unique elements of array
$aUnique = _ArrayUnique($aList)
; And add a column
_ArrayColInsert($aUnique, 1)

; loop through the unique elements
For $i = 1 to $aUnique[0][0]
    ; Check how many times the element is present
    StringReplace($sList, "|" & $aUnique[$i][0] & "|", "")
    ; And store it
    $aUnique[$i][1] = @extended
Next

; And display it
_ArrayDisplay($aUnique, "", Default, 8)

That is very clever using the @extended, thanks!

litlmike,

A nice little trick I picked up over the years...

think this may be close as well, provided the list is already sorted in any fashion that groups like items

#include<array.au3>

Global $aList[][2] = [["U5L4"], ["U5L4"], ["U5L4"], ["U6L5"], ["U4L12"]]
$k = 1

For $i = ubound($aList) - 1 to 0 step -1
    If $i > 0 AND $aList[$i][0] = $aList[$i - 1][0] Then
        _ArrayDelete($aList , $i)
        $k += 1
    Else
        $aList[$i][1] = $k
        $k = 1
    EndIf
Next

_ArrayDisplay($aList)
