## Distinct Total different in text box and chart

Dear all,

I am facing the following problem:

I have several representatives, each of them can work in more than one region.

However, in order to know how many representatives I have in each region, I am using the following expression (column "Value", where the total is configured to be the sum of values):

Count( {(<Regions -={' '}, Filter_field ={'Something'}>}distinct REP_CODE) -> 963

To count the total, I am using the following expression:

Count( {(<Regions -={' '}, Filter_field ={'Something'}>}total distinct REP_CODE) -> 955

Then, when summing inside a specific region, that representative may be unique (distinct) but in the whole set it isn't. Thus, the sum of the distincts is different the total sum. Finally, when I use the expression to get the distribution (percentage), I get a total of 100.8% (963 instead of 955).

Do you have any ideas on how to overcome this?

Try this for total

Sum(TOTAL Aggr(Count( {(<Regions -={' '}, Filter_field ={'Something'}>}distinct REP_CODE), Regions))

This should give you 963 for denominator.

Sum(TOTAL Aggr(Count( {(<Regions -={' '}, Filter_field ={'Something'}>}distinct REP_CODE), Regions))

In KPI Object, you might be able to just try this

Sum(Aggr(Count( {(<Regions -={' '}, Filter_field ={'Something'}>}distinct REP_CODE), Regions))
