Returns the value of a column in a row that is at some offset following the current row in a serialized row set.



next(column, offset)

next(column, offset, default_value)


  • column: the column to get the values from.

  • offset: the offset to go ahead in rows. When no offset is specified a default offset 1 is used.

  • default_value: the default value to be used when there is no next rows to take the value from. When no default value is specified, null is used.


Table | serialize | extend nextA = next(A,1)
| extend diff = A - nextA
| where diff > 1

Table | serialize nextA = next(A,1,10)
| extend diff = A - nextA
| where diff <= 10
