## Sum if with a set year

Hi - I have the below expression that is working for a survey results.  The table shows results as below.

100*Sum(IF([Would Recommend]='Yes',1,0))/Sum(IF([Would Recommend]='Yes' or [Would Recommend]='No',1,0))

I want to show only 2016FY and 2017YTD without users having to select years. The year is called "Completed Year".  Ideally, I want to have the table to look like this.  But I don't think it's possible.   So if you could tell me how I can get to the expression to show just the 2016 without selecting any year filter, that would be a great start for me.

I tried this but of course it doesn't work..

100*Sum({1}IF([Completed Year]='2016' and [Would Recommend]='Yes',1,0))/Sum(IF([[Completed Year]='2016' and [Would Recommend]='Yes' or [Would Recommend]='No',1,0))

Thank you!

## Re: Sum if with a set year

First, you can simplify the original expression:

100*count({<[Would Recommend]={'Yes'}>} [Would Recommend])/count([Would Recommend])

Next, for the year 2016:

100*count({<[Would Recommend]={'Yes'}, [Completed Year]={2016}>} [Would Recommend])/count({<[Completed Year]={2016}>} [Would Recommend])

I hope you can figure out the rest...

Hi,

Would you be able to attach a sample app or data set?

Thanks

## Re: Sum if with a set year

Thank you for this!  The expression itself works perfectly.  Now my table looks like this, mind you, I need to do 2016 and 2017 for other categories as well but I can probably apply the same to them. Problem here is I need to have the Year as columns and Recommend in row, but I can't figure out how to make the visualization work that way. :[

## Re: Sum if with a set year

Here is an example of a table without the real dimensions.  Actually, there is a dimension there, based on ValueList() function.

Of course it is not a solution but an idea how you can build your table.  I'm just using dummy expressions here,

I actually don't know how to open the qvf file.  Could you please direct me to a thread that may have instructions on how to view that?  Thank you.

## Re: Sum if with a set year

Well, you're on Sense forums, and your screenshots look "sensy" ,that is qvf.

If you have Qlik Sense Desktop, copy the file into C:\Users\<actual user, that is yourself>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Apps
If you use Qlik Server, you have to go Applications, and import the file.

I don't have Qlik Sense Desktop, so when I try to import the saved qvf file from the app, it says the file format is not supported, looks like only qvd and qvx..

## Re: Sum if with a set year

QMC certainly can import qvf files.  Maybe it is a version difference (?)  I saved it now in an older version, see if you can import it now.

## Re: Sum if with a set year

It still says the file is not supported;;  I will ask another staff here in a bit to see how they are importing.  I used Region instead of Year for now, which should be something the management would want to see anyways.

Meanwhile I lied and could not get the other ones to work... Here is the working expression for NPS numbers, and how can I make this one so that it would be for Completed Year 2016?  Thank you!!

(SUM(if([Would Recommend]='Yes',1,0))/COUNT([Would Recommend]) - SUM(if([Would Recommend]='No',1,0))/COUNT([Would Recommend]))*100
