I have a spreadsheet "attached" of "Ring Numbers"
The problem I'm having is the data starting with a "R4" and an "R5" need a "1" inserted in between the R and the 4 and also the R and the 5.
For example
"R4142" needs to be "R14142" & "R5507" needs to be "R15507" in order to be joined with another dataset
I am having issues isolating these specific fields only and entering the "1"

Does your company store data on premises, off site, in the cloud, or a combination of these? If you answered “yes”, you need a data backup recovery plan that fits each and every platform. Watch now as as Percona teaches us how to build agile data backup recovery plan.

I have the following query on prior help and I added a column 'text1', change the Comp5 heading to Comp15 and I can't get 'text1' and Comp15 values on the result:
        PID INT ,
        TEXT1 VARCHAR(10),
Comp1 VARCHAR(10),
 Comp2 VARCHAR(10),
Comp3 VARCHAR(10),
Comp4 VARCHAR(10),
Comp15 VARCHAR(10)

VALUES ( 11122, '1212', NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL ) ,
         ( 12345, NULL, NULL, NULL, '123', NULL, NULL ) ,
       ( 23456, NULL, '234', NULL, 'ewr', NULL, NULL ) ,
       ( 34567, NULL, NULL, 'acc', NULL, NULL, 'def' ) ,
       ( 45678, NULL, NULL, NULL, 'jkl', NULL, NULL ) ,
       ( 56789, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL, 'we1' ) ,
       ( 23450, NULL, 'abc', 'acc', 'exy', 'ert', 'def' );

WITH Unpivoted
     FROM   @TEMP4 T UNPIVOT(CompValue FOR CompType IN(Comp1, Comp2, Comp3, Comp4, Comp15)) U ) ,
            U.CompValue ,
                                              ORDER BY U.CompType ASC ) AS VARCHAR(255)) AS NewCompType
     FROM   Unpivoted U )
FROM   Reordered R
    PIVOT (   MIN(CompValue)
              FOR NewCompType IN ( Comp1, Comp2, Comp3, Comp4, Comp15 )) P;
So I have a dataset wherein I have account number and "days past due" with every observation. So for every account number, as soon as the "days past due" column hits a code like "DLQ3" , I want to remove rest of the rows for that account(even if DLQ3 is the first observation for that account).

My dataset looks like :

Observation date Account num   Days past due

2016-09                           200056              DLQ1
2016-09                           200048              DLQ2
2016-09                           389490              NORM
2016-09                           383984              DLQ3.....

So for account 383984, I want to remove all the rows post the date 2016-09 as now its in default.

So in all I want to see when the account hits DLQ3 and when it does I want to remove all the rows post the first DLQ3 observation.

I can upload a into RStudio server using shiny.  However, I cannot open the file for editing and saving for processing by the R code.  Apparently, the randsontable library function ransdontable() takes as input a dataframe.  I am using the code below: DF =$datapath))
    rhandsontable(DF, width = 550, height = 300)

but I get the message:

Warning: Error in cannot coerce class "c("rhandsontable", "htmlwidget")" to a data.frame

Is there a solution for this, or is there any other way to open and edit file using shiny?

My code was completely wrong. If anyone wants to find more about the R rhandsontable, please post a question. I will be happy to help.
A user I support needs me to purchase the JMP software (which is available from the website).

I have visited this website and have found that this software is being sold for $1,700.

Are there any other places or vendors where the full version of this software can be purchased for less?

Installing SQL 2017 we were asked to "Accept" on "Microsoft R Open".  We looked it up some sort of open source, but What is it to us Microsoft product users?, also  Why click "Accept" it in this SQL install? and How can we take advantage of this "Microsoft R Open"?
I have a data frame with some names (rows) and I have some positions that I want to use, for instance 35th row and 145th row. How do I get the names of the rows which are in this positions? I uploaded a print screen that may help understanding. Thanks!

I tried something like

names1 <- row.names(which(size_96 < median(size_96, na.rm= T)))
Hi, I have one data frame (df1) with 20 observations (one for each year) and 597 variables (each one is one stock). The values are a ratio called book-to-market ratio. I need to build two portfolios for each year which consists of the stocks with values lower than the median and stocks with values above the median. The names of the stocks are the columns from df1. So I need to check if each value from each row (each year) is below or above the median and identify each stock name (columns in df1). Then I need to match it with the columns from another data frame (df2) which has data from the return of each stock in each year (20x597). The end result would be a vector with 20 entries, which are the differences of average returns between the two portfolios. I hope it was clear enough, thanks for the answer and I`m here for any explanation.

I've logged into a Microsoft R Server using mrsdeploy::remoteLogin()

Test with session:

REMOTE> result <- system("gpg --yes --batch -r [e-mail] --passphrase=[youPassphrase] --armor --utf8-strings --decrypt youFile", intern = TRUE)

REMOTE> result
[1] 2

REMOTE> exit
>Logout from remote R session complete

Test without session:

result <- system("gpg --yes --batch -r [e-mail] --passphrase= youPassphrase] --armor --utf8-strings --decrypt youFile", intern = TRUE)

gpg: encrypted with 2048-bit RSA key, ID XXXXXXX, created 2017-11-20 "name<e-mail>"

[1] "Esta es la frase\r"
[2] "que he encriptado\r"

I need that it work based on remote session because this way works on service.

Kind regards,
below is a VBA formula for subtotalling filtered data and  which works fine if I define the column number as a given number  in in the section of code to the right
However I would like to define the column number as a variable ie Col Number 2 or Column Number 6 etc
Have seen some suggestions how this might work but doesnt seem to like the formula I am using
I know what I have put in is wrong but am trying to figure out the correct if possible version

Sub Analysis_Testdev()
 Dim ColNumberx As Integer
 ColNumberx = 2

    Application.CutCopyMode = False
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = _
    ' my problem is getting this bit of the above equation to work in that I want the Column Number to be a variable ColNumberx and i cant seem to get it to work
       '   --('WsheetA'![R49C&ColNumberx]:[R20000C&ColNumberx]='WsheetA'!RC[-1])),"""")"
       ' the aim is to create a valid formula in B10 based on whatever column I choose and then copy it to cells B10:B29 but I cant get the column number based on a variable right

I have to install an R program and several open source proteomics programs in a linux box.  The R program calls the open source proteomics programs.  The pipe line starts by one of the programs taking as input a raw data file and all the programs produce output files some of which may be input to the other programs in the pipe line.  The users will be able to run the R program online.
1. Is it possible to do this? I am using the open open source version of RStudio which s single threaded (users responses to program requests wait until the previous user in the chain finishes running the pipeline. This implies that the proteomics programs called by R will be called by a single user at a time.

2.  Is there any way of synchronizing the linux box and the users pcs so that the files can be created in both the linux server and the PCs, otherwise the users will have to send the raw data file to the Linux box and to import data files from the linux box to their PCs.
The R program that we have calls other proteomics open source software installed in the user PCs.  I am going to install RStudio server and the Sniny server in linux so that everyone can access the program remotely.  The idea is to keep the proteomics software in the user PCS and just install the R program in the server.  Is this possible? Will the server be able to locate the software installed in the user PCs?
Guys I have codes here that is working in Numeric only.
I need a code that whatever is the last number it will generate the next number.Whether I changed the last or not it will generate a next number. Here's my code for the numeric number but I need to generate a number  using alpha-numeric.

Dim Ws As Worksheet
    Dim r As Long
    Dim ReqNo As String
    Set Ws = Worksheets("MainRecord")
    r = Ws.Cells(Ws.Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp)
    ReqNo = CODES.Text & "-" & r + 1
    If IsNumeric(Application.Match(ReqNo, Worksheets("MainRecord").Range("D:D"), False)) Then GoTo getNum
    On Error Resume Next
    Me.REQUESTNO.Value = ReqNo

I dont know what code to use.To generate an Alpha-Numeric number

I dont think SQL can store a table with 190,005 columns and 5000 Rows.

What I have now.
Right now what I have is a table with 5001 observations. Each observation has 190,005 possible scenarios.  That's 950,215,005 rows.

My objective.
I would like to pivot this table so my observations is the first column and all the possible outcomes are columns.
The observation is an int and the possible observations are bit (basically yes or no for outcome).

I am using Microsoft SQL server 2016.

My goal.
I am trying to create a matrix to do correlation analysis. I will be bring the data into R some how i am sure that's going to be a challenge as well.

If SQL cant do it that's fine but how then can I get this data into a Text file from SQL?

Basically Type becomes columns and isTrue flag is now going horizontal so there is 1 row per Key. Remember there are 190,005 different Types for each member. Yes I do know every possible Type value. For the sake of this example I didnt think it would be wise to list all 190,005.
Here are my columns
Key, Type, isTrue

How to find the returns of multiple, irregular inflows & outflows over a short period, lets say in 4 months?

I don't want to use the XIRR as it gives the compounded annualized return, which will be misleading. I want to calculate the returns for the duration of the investment only.

For eg., please refer to the attached excel sheet which lists out 5 transactions of Buy & Sell over 4 months period.

Thanks and regards

I received a new computer last week but cannot get Task Scheduler to successfully run a VBS script.  It says it is running but the spreadsheets are not updating.  I created a new script to open Notepad and type a few words and Task Scheduler says it is running, ran successfully, but it did not..Notepad never opened.

I can manually run both scripts and they work fine.  Spreadsheets get updated and Notepad opens, types a few words, and stays open until I close Notepad.

My company's computer support has not been able to help at this time and I am currently waiting for the next level of help.  However, that could be more than a week until someone contacts me.

Attached are some screen shots I hope will help, with some identifying text blacked out with a description of what info was there.

Would any of you have any ideas as to why the scripts work when I double click on them manually to get them to run but Task Scheduler will not successfully get them to run, even though it says they are running?
