SQL Query: 3 Methods for Calculating Cumulative SUM

Image
SQL provides various constructs for calculating cumulative sums, offering flexibility and efficiency in data analysis. In this article, we explore three distinct SQL queries that facilitate the computation of cumulative sums. Each query leverages different SQL constructs to achieve the desired outcome, catering to diverse analytical needs and preferences. Using Window Functions (e.g., PostgreSQL, SQL Server, Oracle) SELECT id, value, SUM(value) OVER (ORDER BY id) AS cumulative_sum  FROM your_table; This query uses the SUM() window function with the OVER clause to calculate the cumulative sum of the value column ordered by the id column. Using Subqueries (e.g., MySQL, SQLite): SELECT t1.id, t1.value, SUM(t2.value) AS cumulative_sum FROM your_table t1 JOIN your_table t2 ON t1.id >= t2.id GROUP BY t1.id, t1.value ORDER BY t1.id; This query uses a self-join to calculate the cumulative sum. It joins the table with itself, matching rows where the id in the first table is greater than or

How to write Regular expression Quickly in python and Examples

Regular Expressions purpose is to find matching string in another string. You will get either 'True' or 'False' as a response. I am not sharing here how to play tennis. My intention is if you just follow ideas, you can play tennis today.

Python supports regular expressions. It has a special library to work with these. I have shared best examples for your quick reference.
 

Python Regular Expressions

  1. What is a regular expression
  2. How does python support
  3. Best examples


1. What is regular expression


>>> haystack = 'My phone number is 213-867-5309.' 
>>> '213-867-5309' in haystack
True


This is just a fundamental use of the regular expression. The real use of Regular Expression comes here. That is - to find if the main has any valid phone number.


Regular expressions also called regexes.

2. Why do we need regx

  1. Data mining - to get required data if it is present are not
  2. Data validations - to get an answer if the received string is valid or not.

Python support


Python has its own regular expression library. That is called re. What you need to do is just import it.

>>>import re


When data matches and not matches

  1. If a match found, it returns the String
  2. If there is no match, it will return null


Example for regex


>>> import re
>>> re.search(r'fox', 'The quick brown fox jumped...')
<_sre.SRE_Match object; span=(16, 19), match='fox'>

Notes: The returned string is 'fox'.


Matching string


>>> match = re.search(r'fox', 'The quick brown fox jumped...')
>>> match.group() 'fox'

Notes: The returned string is 'fox'.



Multiple matches

>>> import re >>> re.findall(r'o', 'The quick brown fox jumped...')
['o', 'o']

Notes: It returns multiple strings.
