TSTool / Command / TableTimeSeriesMath


The TableTimeSeriesMath command performs a simple math operation on time series using values from a table. For example, a table that is populated by the CalculateTimeSeriesStatistic command or ReadTableFromDelimitedFile could be used to modify time series data. See also the TableMath command, which performs math on a table.

The table value is determined by matching the time series identifier (formatted according to the TableTSIDFormat parameter) with the TSID value in the table column specified by the TableTSIDColumn parameter. If necessary, use the ManipulateTableString command to generate an identifier column in the table that allows that match. Missing values in the time series generally will not be updated, although the assignment (=) operator will do so.

The following dialog is used to edit the command and illustrates the syntax of the command.

Command Syntax

The command syntax is as follows:


Command Parameters

Parameter                        Description Default             
TSList Indicates the list of time series to be processed, one of:
  • AllMatchingTSID – all time series that match the TSID (single TSID or TSID with wildcards) will be processed.
  • AllTS – all time series before the command.
  • EnsembleID – all time series in the ensemble will be processed (see the EnsembleID parameter).
  • FirstMatchingTSID – the first time series that matches the TSID (single TSID or TSID with wildcards) will be processed.
  • LastMatchingTSID – the last time series that matches the TSID (single TSID or TSID with wildcards) will be processed.
  • SelectedTS – the time series are those selected with the SelectTimeSeries command.
TSID The time series identifier or alias for the time series to be processed, using the * wildcard character to match multiple time series. Can be specified using ${Property}. Required if TSList=*TSID
EnsembleID The ensemble to be processed, if processing an ensemble. Can be specified using ${Property}. Required if TSList=*EnsembleID
Operator The operator to be applied to the time series and table input. None – must be specified.
TableID Identifier for table that provides input. Can be specified using ${Property}. None – must be specified.
TableTSIDColumn Table column name that is used to match the time series identifier for processing. Can be specified using ${Property}. None – must be specified.
TableTSIDFormat The specification to format the time series identifier to match the TSID column. Use the format choices and other characters to define a unique identifier. Time series alias if available, or otherwise the time series identifier.
TableInputColumn Table column name to retrieve the table value. Can be specified using ${Property}. None – must be specified.
IfTableInputIsBlank Action if time table input is blank during processing (no value to operate on). Warn
IfTSListIsEmpty Action if time series list is empty. Fail


See the automated tests.

The delimited file corresponding to that used in the above dialog example is shown below. In this example, the time series identifiers have location parts with values ts1 and ts2.
