I want to define an eExpression, with a Parameter to deciced the "rank'" - so if I want the 1st or 2nd or 3rd - sorted value:
=FirstSortedValue(Field, SortWeight, $1)
The real expression is this, works ok if I use a number or nothing for the 3rd Param.
=FirstSortedValue( TOTAL DIM1&';'&DIM2, -Aggr(
$(eZZZ) / $(eYYY_0) +$(eZZZ) / $(eYYY_1) +$(eZZZ) / $(eYYY_2) , DIM1, DIM2) ,$1 )
Thanks! Hope I can do this 🙂
Well you can add a variable maybe?
Let's call it : vParam :
As an expression :
=' number '&(vParam)& ' is : '&FirstSortedValue(id, -sales, $(vParam))
Thanks for your reply, it works ok, but I have a different use case.
I use the expression several times parallely, so it has to return DIM1&DIM2 value at the same time for the Rank No. 1, No. 2. and No. 3.
Any more ideas? I am not sure if the synthax of the 3rd parameter ($1) is ok?
I made it working, the issue was not with the Parameter but the eExpression definition:
=FirstSortedValue(TOTAL Field, SortWeight, $1) not OK, if used in chart or textbox like: '$(FirstSortedExpr(2))'
=FirstSortedValue(TOTAL Field, SortWeight, 2) OK if used in chart or textbox like: '$(FirstSortedExpr)'
FirstSortedValue(TOTAL Field, SortWeight, $1) OK, if used in chart or textbox like: $(FirstSortedExpr(2))
So I assume it must be that in the above examples, the Expression was calculated 'in the background' (first) and its result delivered as a string.
In the 3rd, the Expression is only calculated in the front end object with the passed paramter.
Any feedback / affaimation on this would be appreciated... Thanks!
