Lock KPI chart that displays a formula

hi,

i can see a number of posts showing how to lock a visulsaition using {1} .

however im having trouble getting this to work on my formula:

='$(vMaxID) / $(vTotal)'

 

is it possible to lock the above formula so selections dont impact my vMaxID value?

thanks

hi @Lakshminarayanan_J  vMaxID =max(ID)

vTotal is just a static number

@JohnSamuel123 .

Try using Alternate State for that KPI,

Go to Master Item -> Click on Alternatestate 

and create new alternate state like "test " .

Drag it to KPI which you need to Lock and click on Apply State

Once it applied , check on Alternate State ribbon on the KPI whether it is applied 

after that if any selection done it wont applied to that KPI
