Set Analysis Query

Hi

I’m really new to Qlik Sense and am having trouble getting a simple set analysis to work.  I have a qvd of transactions that have columns including ‘Amount’ and ‘Actual_Flag’.  I want to return the amount where the actual flag is ‘A’ but although the expression is accepted by the expression editor I am getting an invalid dimension indicator.

SUM(${<ACTUAL_FLAG={'A'}>}AMOUNT)

Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

Diane

I think you have misplaced the $ sign to be before {... it needs to be after {

Sum({$<ACTUAL_FLAG={'A'}>}AMOUNT)

Try using double quotes around the A, as in "A" and bear in mind fields are case sensitive so maybe :

SUM (  {< Actual_Flag = {"A"} >} Amount )

Hi Diane,

you say you get "invalid dimension" error, so maybe the problem is somewhere else, because this expression is a measure, not a dimension. Double check other fields in your chart.

Plus, Sunny's and Bill's comments are very true. Your expression as you typed it here contains a typo and field names are case sensitive. In description you say you have fields 'Amount' and 'Actual_Flag' but the expression says AMOUNT and ACTUAL_FLAG. In Qlik this is treated as diffferent columns, so double check field names as well.

Hope this helps

Identifier $ is implicit so you can remove it. As Sunny has mentioned, it is in the wrong place. All Set Analysis syntax must occur within a pair of curly braces.

Hi Diane,

As Juraj said you might  be adding this in dimensions. THE SET EXPRESSION  you mentioned can be a measure only.

Thanks for all the responses, your comments were really helpful.

I've now got it working by addressing the $ issue and creating it as a measure rather than a dimension.

Thanks again

Hi Pablo

Happy to, but can you advise how to do this?  When I click in that 'Actions' against replies sent I only see 'Mark as Helpful'.  Am I looking in the wrong place?  Apologies for my ignorance
