Hi Friends,
I have a input data like,
class_id Marks
101 50
101 60
101 40
102 90
102 35

And i want my output data like
class_id Marks Rank
101 50 2
101 60 1
101 40 3
102 90 1
102 35 2

Hi friends,

This question is a trick and as i found in every answer
given previously, there is a slight miss-queue.

Check out my solution for this question:

I/p File(Primary)
!
I/p
file---->Sort---->Sort---->transformer---->join/lookup---->O/p
File

(1). In the first sort stage, make class_id and marks fields
as keys, sort by descending and then create a Key change column.

(2). In second sort stage, make class_id only as a key
(don't sort previously sorted) and create a cluster key
change column.

(3). You will get the o/p as given below:

Class_Id, Marks, KeyChange, ClusterKeyChange
102,90,1,1
102,35,1,0
101,60,1,1
101,50,1,0
101,40,1,0

(4). In transformer stage take a integer type variable say
var1 and create one column say Rank.
Now, derive Var1 as :
if ClusterKeyChange=1 then 1 else Var1
And, derive Rank as :
if ClusterKeyChange=1 then 1 elseif (ClusterKeyChange=0 and
KeyChange=0) then Var1 else Var1+1

(5). Take only class_id, marks & rank as an o/p of the
transformer, so that you will have the o/p as given below:

Class_id, Marks, Rank
102,90,1
102,35,2
101,60,1
101,50,2
101,40,3

(6). Now finally, apply join/lookup and take this o/p as a
Reference data and Primary data will be the Source I/p File.
Take Class_id and Marks as keys and derive Rank to the o/p,
so that you will get the finally o/p as given below:

class_id Marks Rank
101 50 2
101 60 1
101 40 3
102 90 1
102 35 2

Hi Friends, I have a input data like, class_id Marks 101 50 101 60 101 ..

Answer / indu

Input->Sort1->Sort2->Trnsformer->Output

Sort1-->Declare class_id and Marks as key column and sort
in descding order.
Sort2-->Declare class_id and Marks as key column(Sort Mode
to Dont sort previously sorted for both) and set clustered
key change column to true.

Otuput for Sort 2 will be

class_id Marks Rank
102 90 1
102 35 0
101 60 1
101 50 0
101 40 0

In the Transformer declare stage variable temp and
initialize to o

Derive temp--> If Rnak=1 then Rank else temp+1

Derive output columns as --->

class_id ---> class_id
Marks ----> Marks
Rank----> temp

Hi Friends, I have a input data like, class_id Marks 101 50 101 60 101 ..

Answer / abhay agrawal

Source--Tx--Target

In  Tx have 5 Stage Variables:
PreSID
CurrSID
PreMarks
CurrMarks
Rank

CurrSID=>PreSID
Input Sid=>CurrSID
CurrMarks=>PreMarks
Input Mark=>CurrMarks
If CurrSID=PreSID then If CurrMarks=PreMarks then Rank Else Rank+1 Else 1=>Rank

Take Rank as output column, let me know if any clarificationneeded.

Hi Friends, I have a input data like, class_id Marks 101 50 101 60 101 ..

Answer / anki_sri

Src>> Sort1 >> Sort2 >> Transfrmr >> Trgt

Sort1 --> sort with class_id and marks as well.
Sort2 --> declare key as id and select Dont Sort(Previously Sorted) and set create cluster key change column as True.

Transfrmr --> set two stage variables.
StageVar1=If Clusterkeychange=1 then Clusterkeychange else StageVar+1

StageVar=StageVar1
Create a new row as rank in transfrmr output and map StageVar1 to rank
