## Help needed for weighted average discount rate

Dear all,

I've been trying and trying to figure this out (I read some many threads about it as well) but I can't handle my data to reach my goal.

Here is the story with a table (the calculation is made with excel):

I need to calculate the weighted average discount rate for all articles

 Article code Public Price Quantity Sales 163FG 357,50 € 5 1.148,50 € 163FT 370,83 € 7 1.653,00 € 163FU 404,17 € 8 2.163,30 € 163FV 537,50 € 6 2.041,80 € 163FW 562,50 € 3 1.077,74 €

For each article, I've got public price, quantity and sales.

To get the discount rate I need to calculate the Average selling price as "Sales/Quantity"

 Article code Public Price Quantity Sales Average selling price 163FG 357,50 € 5 1.148,50 € 229,70 € 163FT 370,83 € 7 1.653,00 € 236,14 € 163FU 404,17 € 8 2.163,30 € 270,41 € 163FV 537,50 € 6 2.041,80 € 340,30 € 163FW 562,50 € 3 1.077,74 € 359,25 €

Then I am able to calculate the discount rate for each article as "1-(Average selling price/Public Price)"

 Article code Public Price Quantity Sales Average selling price Discount rate 163FG 357,50 € 5 1.148,50 € 229,70 € 35,75% 163FT 370,83 € 7 1.653,00 € 236,14 € 36,32% 163FU 404,17 € 8 2.163,30 € 270,41 € 33,09% 163FV 537,50 € 6 2.041,80 € 340,30 € 36,69% 163FW 562,50 € 3 1.077,74 € 359,25 € 36,13%

Final step to get the "Weighted Discount rate" I do :

=SUMPRODUCT(Discount rate;Quantity)/Sum(Quantity)

 Weighted Discount rate 35,39%

How would you do it within Qlik Sense? I am able to get a good discount for each article, when the total is not right !

That's my closest formula

((1-((Sum(Sales)/Sum(Quantity))/(Sum(Public Price))))*(Sum(Quantity)))/(Sum(Quantity))

I've enclosed the sample in a .xlsx file

Try this

`=Sum(Aggr((1 - (Sum(Sales)/Sum(Quantity)/Sum([Public Price]))) * Sum(Quantity), [Article code])) /Sum(Quantity)`

You're a god ! It's working.

Good news for the coming weekend 🙂

Do you know why my attemp was not working and that I needed to aggr on the article (as my table with filtered on article)?

Because for the total row... you wanted to sum the multiplication of discount rate and quantity... you need to sum them otherwise the total row will also be done as any other row.
