Qty Count

Hi there,

I have 4 sheets in a Test Excel file (file attached). All are having same column called 'Qty'. If I use sum() function it counts qty from all 4 sheets.

My confusions are:

1- How to sum up Qty column total separately for each individual excel sheet?

2- This expression works for current date sum but again it sums up all 4 excel sheets: sum({1 <Date={"$(=today())"}>} total Qty).

3- How to count total Qty excluding today's Qty again for separate excel sheet?

Please assist since I am new to Qlik Sense scripting.

Re: Qty Count

May be try this to do individual sheet sums:

Receiving Sheet

Sum({<Receiving = {"=Len(Trim(Receiving)) > 0"}>}Qty)

Order Sheet

Sum({<Order = {"=Len(Trim(Order)) > 0"}>}Qty)

PO Sheet

Sum({<PO = {"=Len(Trim(PO)) > 0"}>}Qty)

Stock Sheet

Sum({<Stock = {"=Len(Trim(Stock)) > 0"}>}Qty)

UPDATE: Sample attached
