## Data Load Editor Invalid Expression

Hi,

I am trying to use this expression in the data load editor to create a new table but I keep getting the invalid expression error.

If((1-(Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Spend))/Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Forecast)))) > .20, 'Red',

If((1-(Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Spend))/Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Forecast)))) > - .20, 'Green')) as RAG

What would need to be changed to make this able to work.

Regards,

William

I solved the issue by removing the sum from the expression.

Thanks.

Hi William,

Please share the complete load script for this expression. If you are using any aggregation function in script like Sum you need to do group by for all the fields that you are loading from the table.

Remove the space between the - and the .20

If(1 - Sum(If(month = currentmonth, Spend)) / Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Forecast)) > .20, 'Red',

If(1 - Sum(If(month = currentmonth, Spend)) / Sum(If(month = currentmonth, Forecast)) > -.20, 'Green')) as RAG

What error message you getting?

Try to write this way

If((1 - (Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Spend)) / Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Forecast)))) > 0.20, 'Red',

If((1 - (Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Spend)) / Sum(If(month= currentmonth, Forecast)))) > - 0.20, 'Green')) as RAG  Contributor II
