Diff btw total and aggr

Total will just enable dynamic grouping by expressions while aggr() creates a temp table within the datamodel. Hence aggr() wil
Where to use:
Total is analogous to SQL group by while Aggr is analogus to SQL Sub Query.

eg:sum(TOTAL <F3,F1> F2)


aGGr(sum(F2),F1,F3)

where F1,F3 are dimensions


All
"All" disregards selections, and, if used, in chart, dimensions. It is the same as function({1} total field)

eg sum(ALL F2)/sum({1} F2)

Generic load: Generic


The unpacking and loading of a generic database can be done with a generic
prefix.
The syntax is:
generic ( loadstatement | selectstatement )
Examples:
Generic Load * from abc.csv;
Generic Select * from table1;
Tables loaded through a generic statement cannot be concatenated.

Generic Database:A generic database is a table in which the field names are
stored as field values in one column, while the field values
are stored in a second. Generic databases are usually
used for attributes of different objects.
crosstable (Month, Sales) load * from ex1.csv;
crosstable (Month, Sales, 2) load * from ex2.csv ;
