COUNTABS

You can use COUNTABS to count the input or output objects in a series, regardless of the validity of the object.

Unlike COUNT, COUNTABS includes both valid and invalid objects in a series.

Syntax:
COUNTABS (series-object-expression)
Meaning:
COUNTABS (objects_to_count)
Returns:
A single-integer

The result is the number of objects_to_count. If the input argument evaluates to "none", COUNTABS returns 0.

COUNTABS does not count existing "none's" unless its group was defined as an explicit format with a Track setting of Places.

Examples

  • COUNTABS ( Claim Record:Patient File )

    This example returns the number of Claim Record objects in Patient File.

  • COUNTABS ( Class IN Transcript )

    This example returns the number of Class objects in Transcript.
