Show specific value in text element

Hi there,

I am unsuccessfully trying to show the value of a text field in a text object, after applying some filters.

The table data is as follows:






There is a unique Stage_i name for a specific selection of Process, Subprocess.

I need to show two filter panes (for Process and Subprocess) and then show the corresponding name for each Stage in differente text elements, when Process and Subprocess are defined.

I found this thread on the subject (, but I’m not able to translate and make the set analysis syntax work in my case.

Could you please suggest something?

Hi, Manoel

Are  you sure there is no duplicates in your table? Like having the combination Process/Subprocess leading to more than one instance of Stage_1. If you have more than one, it will display a null

Share your qvf, so we can help you find the problem.

Hi Eduardo,

Thanks for your reply. You were right and the set analysis expresion wasn't working (wasn't showing anything) because with my former data model I wasn't correctly defining the information to be displayed. There were more than one possible result to show and it was returning null.

I introduced a "primary key" in the main data table and also divided the data load in two different tables.

After that, a simple set analysis expression (only({$<Stage={'Stage_1'}>}Description)) worked fine.

Thanks for the guidance.
