## Filtering Dimensions with a formula

Hi everyone,

I am new to QlikSense and I have a rather basic question: I try to set up a table which has only two rows:

- FinancialAccounts (drill down dimension with 3 levels)

- Values (measure: sum() )

Now what I try to do is to "pre-filter" the dimension "Financial Account" in the respective formula, so that only the Accounts are shown, which have the ID = 11. This concerns only the first level of the drilldown.

I know there is the possibility to filter the values in the measure with:  sum({\$<FinancialAccountsID={"11"}>}Values)

But then the table does not show anymore the first level of the drilldown - it only shows the second level!

I tried the following (formula in the dimension), which did not work: if(FinancialAccountsID={"11"},FinancialAccountsID,null())

I hope you guys can help me!

## Re: Filtering Dimensions with a formula

only({<FinancialAccountsID={"11"}>}FinancialAccountsID)

or

if(FinancialAccountsID=11,FinancialAccountsID,null())

or

if(aggr(sum({\$<FinancialAccountsID={"11"}>}Values),FinancialAccountsID),FinancialAccountsID)

## Re: Filtering Dimensions with a formula

Thank you very much for your help!

I have a final question: Is it possible within a measure to connect several if-statements?

For example:

If the ID is 11, then sum up ID 12, 13 and 14

If the ID is 15, then sum up ID 16 and 17

Edit: The thing is, I would like to calcuate subtotals in a table (which have an ID: 11 and 15 in the example, e.g. 11 for EBITDA, 15 for EBIT). Is there may a better way?
