Pivot Table Conditional Coloring

Hello everyone,

At the moment I have a pivot table that lists out the name of a document, say "X Datasheet", and then lists it's locations, so a 1 in SFDC and a 1 in "X Website". I am working in qlik sense, and I need a function to put in background color that says... If there is a link in SFDC and a link on the website, turn both boxes green. However, 'SFDC link' is not a dimension or measure on its own, so it would have to be something like, when the location equals SFDC and the location equals website, turn both boxes green. So my pivot table looks something like this...Capture.PNG

I would like to write a function that will turn B2 and C2 Green, because they are equal. I am having trouble with the formatting, and it might not be possible because of the data model (as the data model is set up with Asset = X Data sheet, Location = SFDC, next line, Asset = X Datasheet, Location = Website, etc)

Please let me know! At the moment, I have a totals line, which would be equal to 2 in the first line and 1 in the second, and have it set to green when > 1.

Hello,

Sure.

Capture.PNG

This is what my data looks like for two different assets. As you can see, the first Asset is listed in two different locations with two different links, whereas the second asset in row 4 is only found on SFDC. Right now, I have a pivot table set up that looks like this.

Capture 1.PNG\

The 'Check' Column is the Totals column, and I have the entire measure set up like this.

Capture.PNG, if(Count(URL) > 1, 'palegreen') where anywhere that says 2 is highlighted in green, and this only occurs in the totals check column. However,  I would like to take out this column and have just the Salesforce and Qlik.com columns, and have a background color expression that turns both of the SFDC and Qlik.com boxes green in 14 Tales of marketing Insight (because both boxes = 1), and leaves Healthcare Labor Productivity Data Sheet the way it is. Essentially, green boxes to signal that there is a link in both locations.

Try in Background color,

Count(Total URL) >1 , 'palegreen')

Hi,

Thank you, but this does not work. I was thinking something that could say,

if([LOCATION] = 'Qlik.com' and [LOCATION] = 'SFDC', 'green')

or

if([Qlik.com Link] >= '1' and [Salesforce Link] >= '1', 'green','yellow')

Re: Pivot Table Conditional Coloring

I had already replied, your function doesn't work. Neither of mine do either. Unfortunately, because of the way the data is set up, 'SFDC' and 'Qlik.com' are not fields, so it is not that simple, as location is the field.

I was also thinking something like this

if(Count({(< [LOCATION] = { 'SFDC' } >* < [LOCATION] = { 'Qlik.com' } >)*}) = 1 'palegreen'))

to indicate that the intersections of the two locations would make it green. I have a similar function in another place to count the number of URLS in that intersection, but I don't know how to apply it or format it.
