## Drill-down Expression

Question -

I have a drill-down bar chart that shows (Retention %).

My Logic -

I have 2 variables:

\$(vRQ1B)

\$(vRQ1E)

I divide by both variables to get my (Retention %).

\$(=vRQ1E)/\$(vRQ1B)

See Example Below -

I have Brazil selected and on the lower right had side the % of 93 is correct. Why are all the other locations showing an average when I created a drill-down?

vRQ1E:

=Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {'>=01/01/2016<=03/31/2016'}>}[Student ID]) - count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {"\$(= '>=' & '01/01/2016' & '<=' & '03/31/2016')"},[Dealer Term Date] = {"\$(= '>=' & '01/01/2016' & '<=' & '03/31/2016')"}>} [Student ID])

vRQ1B:

=Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {'>=01/01/2016<=03/31/2016'}>}[Student ID])

## Re: Drill-down Expression

Try this:

(Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {'>=01/01/2016<=12/31/2016'}>}[Student ID])

-

Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {"\$(= '>=' & '01/01/2016' & '<=' & '12/31/2016')"},[Dealer Term Date] = {"\$(= '>=' & '01/01/2016' & '<=' & '12/31/2016')"}>} [Student ID]))

Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {'>=01/01/2016<=12/31/2016'}>}[Student ID])

Have you already clicked on the green tick mark? May be it will go away once you click on it

## Re: Drill-down Expression

What's the green tick mark? The Check Mark?

It works fine when I make the selection but I want to show a ranking amongst them all to show the top location and their retention.

Right the check mark. I am not sure I understand what you trying to do. Can you may be trying explaining again?

## Re: Drill-down Expression

I want it to look like the above ^. However, that calculation is not showing what I want. If you look back up at the first part of this thread you'll see my calculation is showing an average across the board. Each location should have their own Retention % and not show an average of all locations. They should all have their own percent's which would then average out to 89% in this example.

I think it has something to do with dividing by variables for the drill-down. But I'm not sure.

I want the End Population / Beginning Population = Retention % (which I explained my logic above).

Does think make more sense?

## Re: Drill-down Expression

Got it, would you be able to try out one of these variations:

vRQ1E/vRQ1B

or

\$(vRQ1E)/\$(vRQ1B)

or

\$(=vRQ1E)/\$(=vRQ1B)

## Re: Drill-down Expression

They all are still returning the average. Below is the logic I want to represent.

Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {'>=01/01/2016<=12/31/2016'}>}[Student ID]) - count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {"\$(= '>=' & '01/01/2016' & '<=' & '12/31/2016')"},[Dealer Term Date] = {"\$(= '>=' & '01/01/2016' & '<=' & '12/31/2016')"}>} [Student ID])  /   Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {'>=01/01/2016<=12/31/2016'}>}[Student ID])

Maybe you'll see something that's restricting the restriction on showing per county.

## Re: Drill-down Expression

Using this expression ^ this is what I get Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {'>=01/01/2016<=12/31/2016'}>}[Student ID]) - count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {"\$(= '>=' & '01/01/2016' & '<=' & '12/31/2016')"},[Dealer Term Date] = {"\$(= '>=' & '01/01/2016' & '<=' & '12/31/2016')"}>} [Student ID])  /   Count({<[Dealer Hire Date] = {'>=01/01/2016<=12/31/2016'}>}[Student ID])

You really are very brilliant. I say it every time... but I'd be lost without your knowledge Sunny!!!

Hopefully one day I can return the favor. You're teaching me a lot!!
