Hi Community,

A table contains these values:

Name                     Number

BOOK 1      ........... 20

BOOK 2 ................. 4

A12345 ...............    34

G45677 .................. 3

901020 ................   34

FRUIT ................. 34

DISK ..................  123

May be this:

Sum({<Name = {'A12345', 'G45677', '901020', 'H12487'}>}Number)

## Re: howto: sum a data list

Hi,

t is more complicated because I do not know the list of items to be added. I could use a formula that allows to recognize that the value contains numbers.

So that,

if the value contains a high number otherwise not rule it out.

cludo.

Try to give Condition on Number

Sum({<Number= {"<=34"}>}Number)

## Re: howto: sum a data list

Sum({<Name = {"=Len(KeepChar(Name, '0123456789')) > 0"}>}Number)

Sum({<Name = {"=KeepChar(Name, '0123456789') * 1 > 10"}>}Number)

## Re: howto: sum a data list

Hi

the solutions finally worked is

Sum({<Name = {"=KeepChar(Name, '0123456789') * 1 > 10"}>}Number)

Now,

may I group them in a linear table?

A12345 10

G45677 20

901020  5

H12487  50

NewName  = 85

NewName is the sum of A12345, G45677, 901020, h12487

Create Straight table

Dimension:

=Valuelist('NewName1','NewName2')

Expression:

=Pick(Match(Valuelist('NewName1','NewName2'),'NewName1','NewName2'),

Sum({<Name = {"=KeepChar(Name, '0123456789') * 1 > 10"}>}Number),

Sum({<Name = {"=KeepChar(Name, '0123456789') * 1 > 20"}>}Number))
