Allows the user to determine the rank of a value in a group of values, output as a new column. The function used depends on the data warehouse as below:


Name = string

A human-readable name for the component.

Include Input Columns = drop-down

Defines whether the component passes all input columns into the output.

Partition Data = dual listbox

Defines how the input data is partitioned to perform the rank calculation. The calculation is then performed on each partition.

Ordering within partitions = column editor

  • Input Column: The input column name for sorting within the partitioned data. You can drag to reorder.
  • Ordering: The order of the sorting: Ascending (Asc) or Descending (Desc).

Functions = column editor

  • Window Function:
    • Rank determines the rank of a value in a group of values.
    • Dense Rank determines the rank of a value in a group of values. The Dense Rank function differs from Rank in one respect: if two or more rows tie, there is no gap in the sequence of ranked values.
    • Cumulative Distribution determines the cumulative distribution of a value within a window or partition.
    • Percent Rank Calculates the percent rank of a given row. Row Number Determines the ordinal number of the current row within a group of rows, counting from 1.
  • Output Column: The name of the output column that the window function will create.


Generates a select statement with a window function in line using the OVER keyword. For more information, read:
