SUM the output of the expression

I have a Output weeks column and the set Analysis is below :

Output Weeks |

12 |

12 |

Set Analysis:

only( { < [Category Type]= {'1'}, Output_Weeks= { "=max({<[Category Type]= {'1'}>} [Deadline Date])< Min({<[Category Type]= {'1'}>}[Creation Date])

AND min({<[Category Type]= {'1'}>} [Creation Date]) < Min ({<[Category Type]= {'1'}>}[Binding Date])" } > }Output_Weeks )

when I replaced the ONLY to SUM I got some random value.

Requirement:

need to SUM of the above set analysis means the output should be 12+12 = **24** in the KPI or Text box.

Thanks.

As you already tried, if you want the values to be summed you need to use sum() rather than Only(). If the result is not what you expect, this is likely because the underlying values are not what you provided and there are actually more than just these two rows. I'd suggest checking your source to ensure that it does in fact consist of what you expect. You could also troubleshoot by replacing the Only() with Count() - this will tell you how many underlying rows you're actually reading from, and if that number isn't two, there's probably some form of duplication.

Iif your data is actually two rows, both have a value of 12, and you use sum, you'll get a result of 24. If you are getting a different result, then your underlying data is not actually two rows of 12, but I have no way of knowing what it is you might be dealing with because in your sample data, it's just two rows of 12. As I suggested, you could use Count() to see if there's more than two rows, and you could use Concat() instead of Only() to get a list of all the values that are being included in this calculation.

did you try with distinct

like Sum(**distinct** yourexpression)

or try with AGGR()

like SUM(AGGR(yourExpression,dimesion_which_you_have_in_chart))

Yes, I tried SUM with distinct and aggr() , in both cases I got 12.

Aggr expression:

sum(aggr(only( { < [Category Type]= {'1'}, Output_Weeks= { "=max({<[Category Type]= {'1'}>} [Deadline Date])< Min({<[Category Type]= {'1'}>}[Creation Date])

AND min({<[Category Type]= {'1'}>} [Creation Date]) < Min ({<[Category Type]= {'1'}>}[Binding Date])" } > }Output_Weeks ), Output_Weeks))

Thanks.
