Table Transform - results of a subquery as a field of a query

Hi there:

Not even sure how to formulate my question clearly which may be why I can't find any info on it:

I have two tables (Page Properties reports actually); for simplicity's sake:

Table 1: Projects

  • Project Name
  • Project Leader


Table 2: Sub-projects

  • Name
  • Parent Project Name (JOIN on this)
  • End Date


What I'm looking for is a table report that concatenates the names of all the Sub Projects as a field of the Projects, e.g.

"Proj 1", "Jane Smith", "SubProject 1, Subproject 2, Subproject 3"
"Proj 2", "Joe Brown", "SubProject a, Subproject b"

That last field, I'm not sure how to accomplish. Of course my easy button would be to join the two and get an output like:

"Proj 1", "Jane Smith", "SubProject 1"

"Proj 1", "Jane Smith", "SubProject 2"


But I'd like to aggregate on that 3rd column for my table display such that the example output above is 2 rows instead of the 5 that a simple join would generate (in fact, I'd use that 3rd column as links back to the page the has that page properties report).

Any tips and tricks that could accomplish this? Thanks!

Hi @Richard Moe ,

The simplest way to group your result table is to use the Pivot Table macro.

As you have Cloud, insert the Table Toolbox macro and create the following sequence inside its shell: your Page Properties Report macros <- the Table Transformer macro (to join your tables and/or perform some calculations) <- the Pivot Table macro (to aggregate your data without losing any links).

Here is an example how you may set your Pivot Table macro:

In the Options tab you may select what "Literal value delimiter" you want to use (comma for my example) and hide totals/control panel.

Hope this workaround helps your case.
