How to get Totals while using aggr in Qliksense

Hi ,

I am grouping my expression according to a column using 'aggr' in the expression editor. I am not able to get any value in Totals column.

For example,

I want to display aggr(sum(aggr(sum(revenue),city)),country), how can I get the corresponding expression to flash in the Totals row?

 Country City Revenue(\$ mn) India Delhi 12 India Gurgaon 4 India Noida 11 India Pune 17 India Hyderabad 5 India Banglore 7 USA New York 13 USA LA 3 USA Detroit 2 USA Washington 15

I want my final aggregation with respect to countries

Why not just use Sum(revenue)? or may be this

Sum(Aggr(Sum(revenue), country, city))

You can have naked aggr expression to show total so as Sunny mentioned, always have an outer aggregation such as sum.

HIC has written an excellent article on how AGGR works.

i think

sum(aggr(sum(aggr(sum(revenue),city,country)),country))

Might also verify that Revenue is actually of type number number and not coming in your load as a text.

IsNum(Revenue) should return -1. If it returns Zero you are dealing with text and your math function won't work.

No need to aggr sum of sums.

if the revenue is in the data model at the city, country level or lower (like a time dimenison), a straight sum with city and country as dimensions would sum by those keys.

unless if you want something else than the sum

only Sum(Revenue) is the same
