Undraw Server



Tpcds offers 100 queries. We will load the tpcds data and execute the query number 11.


Query file location

The file containing this query is located below the tpcds-query connection.

To get the absolute path and other information, you can use the data info. Example:

tabli data info sqlite/[email protected]_query

This query shows customers that have generated growing sales from one year to another in the s and w sales type. Below is an excerpt.

tabli data head --limit 20 sqlite/[email protected]_query
The first 20 rows of the data resource (sqlite\[email protected]_query):

with year_total as (
 select c_customer_id customer_id
       ,c_first_name customer_first_name
       ,c_last_name customer_last_name
       ,c_preferred_cust_flag customer_preferred_cust_flag
       ,c_birth_country customer_birth_country
       ,c_login customer_login
       ,c_email_address customer_email_address
       ,d_year dyear
       ,sum(ss_ext_list_price-ss_ext_discount_amt) year_total
       ,'s' sale_type
 from customer
 where c_customer_sk = ss_customer_sk
   and ss_sold_date_sk = d_date_sk
 group by c_customer_id

Loading the sales data

To prevent any conflict, you can execute the below command to drop all tables from the sqlite howto connection

tabli data drop *@sqlite

Loading the data with the transfer command. The query_11 is a sales query, we are then loading the sales data and their dependencies

tabli data transfer --with-dependencies *[email protected] @sqlite

Executing the query

A query is selected via a script selector where:

  • the first part is a data selector that locates one or more files that contains the query
  • and the second part is the connection where the query should run.

In the below script selector

A query data uri can be used with all command.

Example with the data print command.

tabli data print (sqlite/[email protected]_query)@sqlite
customer_id        customer_first_name   customer_last_name   customer_email_address
