I have been asked to forward this on to the list for suggestions.
From my colleague....
I am trying to get a sample of at most 5 random customers from each branch from a table. I can achieve the result using CSUM with a GROUP BY statement pointing to the BRANCH variable and a QUALIFY clause that limits the output to the first 5 customers. I was wondering if there was a method using the SAMPLE statement?
Current SQL using CSUM
sel * from mkting.CIM7403_Customer_Base group by planning_srtcd qualify csum(1,cidpersid mod 23) < 6 ;
With SAMPLE I'm aware of the SAMPLE WHEN condition statements that could be used for this purpose but when the number of groups exceeds a 1000 and can change, I was wondering if this could be done using the original table or a lookup to pick all values for the group that I want to set a condition upon and end up with 5 random values per grouping.
