Total Row in Line Chart

Hi, I'm new to Qlik Sense so forgive me if this has been asked.

I have a line chart with Term Code and Gender as my Dimensions and Count(Enrollment) as my Measure. I have two lines in my Line Chart 1 for Females and 1 for Males.  I would like a 3rd line that has the total of both the Male and the Female Enrollment.  I've reviewed some videos and gather that it is a calculation but I'm not doing something right.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Total Row in Line Chart

Instead of Gender dimension, you could use a synthethic dimension

=ValueList( 'Female', 'Male', 'Total')

Then your expressions would look like

=Pick(Match(ValueList( 'Female', 'Male', 'Total'),'Female', 'Male', 'Total'),

Count({<Gender = {'Female'}>} Enrollment),

Count({<Gender = {'Male'}>} Enrollment),

Count(Enrollment)

)

Hi,

You can also do this by using an Inline table like below

*

INLINE[

Gender, Gender_WITH_TOTAL

Female, Female

Male, Male

Female, Total

Male, Total];

Now use Gender_WITH_TOTAL as a dimension, now you can use this in all your charts wherever you required.

Expression:

Count(Enrollment)

Hope this helps you.

Re: Total Row in Line Chart

When I create the synthethic dimension and use it I loose the individual lines for Male and Female and it changes the graph to just the total but I see entries in the legend for Male, Female and Total.  Not sure what I'm doing wrong.

Hi

i think you miss something

Keep dimension KSU_TERM_CODE

check that dimension total enrollment is made with this formula :

ValueList( 'Female', 'Male', 'Total')

and remove the mesure count(STUDENT_SEX_CODE) and replace it by this one :

=Pick(Match(ValueList( 'Female', 'Male', 'Total'),'Female', 'Male', 'Total'),

Count({<Gender = {'Female'}>} Enrollment),

Count({<Gender = {'Male'}>} Enrollment),

Count(Enrollment)

)

Re: Total Row in Line Chart

HI,

Try like this, I think ValueList() won't work with Pick() & Match()

=If(ValueList( 'Female', 'Male', 'Total')='Female',

Count({<Gender = {'Female'}>} Enrollment),'Male', 'Total'),

If(ValueList('Female', 'Male', 'Total')='Male',

Count({<Gender = {'Male'}>} Enrollment),

Count(Enrollment)

))

Hope this helps you.

Re: Total Row in Line Chart

Use only Term Code as dimension and three expressions:

Female: Count({<Gender={'Female'}>}Enrollment)

Male: Count({<Gender={'Male'}>}Enrollment)

Total: Count(Enrollment)

For clarity I'd choose Line as Presentation instead of Area.

If you don't see the Female and Male lines then the set expression is probably returning an empty set. Make sure to use exact case sensitive field names and values. Female, FEMALE and female are three different values. Gender, GENDER and gender are three different fields.
