## Hi All, I'm new to Qlik and could use some help.

I have pivot table that looks like the one below. I'm trying to take the difference between price and prior price (for same Lot# and plant), if increase in price, then multiply it by quantity sold at price increase. If no increase then 0.  Thank you.

 Rows Measures Lot# Customer Plant Month Price Quantity Sold Impact 0021 Johnnies 5 8 \$ 4.35 2 0021 Johnnies 5 9 \$ 5.01 25 =if(5.01>4.35 for same Lot# and plant, then Impact =(5.01-4.35) *25 0021 Johnnies 5 10 \$ 5.10 21 0021 Johnnies 5 11 \$ 5.10 23 0021 Johnnies 5 12 \$ 5.25 10 0035 Joney 7 8 \$ 2.67 6 0035 Joney 7 9 \$ 2.80 4 0035 Joney 7 10 \$ 2.85 53 0035 Joney 7 11 \$ 2.90 5

Thank you for the quick response David.  I will try this once IT gets me the proper rights.

There was one error in your solution which I fixed.  It was yielding negative values

So I updated it to fix that ( now shows 16.50 instead of -103.74 for impact on line 2 ) -- and changed up the script to eliminate the temp table.

[Price Updated]:

Load *, if(peek("Lot#")="Lot#" and peek(Plant)=Plant and Peek(Price)<Price, (Price-Peek(Price))*"Quantity Sold",0) AS Impact

I'm new too so I wanted to try out your solution and experiment with preceding load.  Thank you.

James - I updated David's solution to correct a small bug.  Being new also - I posted it as a reply to him when perhaps maybe I needed to put as a reply on the original thread.  I did add a change to eliminate the temp table - since I was trying out the preceding load .

Thanks Mary Jo,  I have a question about the [ ]; at the end below INLINE with the column headings and the rows of data.  That was a table I made up so you could see the structure of the table I was creating.  My data table before the pivot is approx. 750,000 rows. I was trying to get the script to enter in the App script for the pivot. How do I just enter the script to perform the added calculation and add the Impact column to table?  Like I said I'm very new to this.

James,

I am new to this too.  It sounds like you have a qvf started - is it possible to upload at least the script for the table you are referring to?  In the meanwhile - let me look for the example I created which doesn't use an inline table - that might answer your question.

INLINE  is a way to quickly add some data, the Load*, if(peek("Lot#")="Lot#" and peek(Plant)=Plant and Peek(Price)<Price, (Price-Peek(Price))*"Quantity Sold",0) AS Impact could be added above any other SQL SELECT or LOAD statement

this could also be done in the UI as a measure using Above() instead of Peek()

## Re: Hi All, I'm new to Qlik and could use some help.

Thank you David for letting me know I could use Above() in UI. I did this and it worked perfectly.  I can't thank you and Mary Jo enough for all your help.  I have a cookbook on Qlik coming today and can't wait to dig into it.

Best regards,

Jim
