This example is referenced in my other post about input parameters. Please have a look at the other post to get a better understanding of the context for this example


We will filter for the substring ng (e.g., oranges) in column product using SQL function LOCATE.


To create the example:

a)  Change in Example 2 the filter expression to:

LOCATE(“product”, ‘$$IP_1$$’)

b)  Save, build, and preview the Calculation View. When asked for a value enter ng

In result you will see all records for which the value in column product contains ng:


Based on the past experiences the generated SQL statement should not be surprising:




SUM(“productRating”) AS “productRating”,

SUM(“amount”) AS “amount”

FROM “INPUTPARAMETERS_HDI_DB_1”.”inputParameters.db::example3″


GROUP BY “date”, “product”;
