## Aggregation to show a relative percentage to the total

Hello,

I have a problem with using a aggregation for constructing a relative percentage of the row value tot the total of the rowvalues.

I have uploaded a data file and a qvw file with a exeample to make it clear.
You will find some dimensions and data columns in the data file.

In the added screenshots of the app is the month apr17 selected.

The problem is that the value of the aggegation expressions is shown only on the total row or on one row of the table that is selected.

(see screenshot)

Clicking on another row makes the aggrgation appear at this row.(see screenshot ).

Regards

Try this

=Only({<Dimensie02=>}Aggr

(NODISTINCT

(

Sum({<Dimensie02=>} Data02  )/

count(DISTINCT {<Dimensie02=>} Dimensie03 )

)

*

(

sum({<Data01={"1"}, Dimensie02=>} Data04  )  /

sum({<Data01={"1"}, Dimensie02=>} Data03  )

), Dimensie03

))

## Re: Aggregation to show a relative percentage to the total

Sunny,

Thank you for your help, the aggregation problem is solved.

The relative percentage is the first expression divided by the aggregation.
This works fine.

But this rises a second question.

I want to use the (sub)total on dimension02 by selecting the option "Show Partial Sums" on the tab
"Presentation" of the Chart properties,
The total is not shown (= zero).

Any suggestions, thanks again in advance.

Sunny,

I wasn’t complete in my message, In my case it only works when you select 1 Dimension03(Month).

=Sum(TOTAL <Dimensie03> Aggr

(

(

Sum({<Dimensie02=>} Data02  )/

count(DISTINCT {<Dimensie02=>} Dimensie03 )

)

*

(

sum({<Data01={"1"}, Dimensie02=>} Data04  )  /

sum({<Data01={"1"}, Dimensie02=>} Data03  )

), Dimensie03

## Re: Aggregation to show a relative percentage to the total

Sunny,

That’s the solution for the aggregation indeed.

My goal is to have a relative percentage of the value of Expr to the value of the Aggr

I’ve put an extra expression (column) as the relative percentage in the table,

i.c the Expression divided by the Aggregation.

The total is of this Rel% is shown but this is not correct,

It has to be a % where the total of these is 100%.

According to the Total of Expr where the value is something like a weighted overage over the months.

How can I correct this ?
