Re: sum of something with if conditon

Hi,

You can resolve this in multiple ways... one of them could be  as below

You can create a new field say New Company Name in back end, and merge all three values in one value

eg. If(wildmatch(CompanyName, 'ABC', 'BTY', 'ATE'), NewName, CompanyName) as NewCompanyName.

then use NewCompanyName field in the chart as dimension.

Re: sum of something with if conditon

I am not sure what is the issue when you use this?

Sum({\$<COMPANY_NAME = {"A*","B*"}>}AMOUNT)

Can you elaborate on the problem?

Re: sum of something with if conditon

When I copied your table directly with the formula, I got the same results.

However, I realized that I had mistyped the dimension (e.g. COMPANY NAME vs. COMPANY_NAME)

It is case sensitive - have you checked that?

Way I checked that was to Sum({<COMPANY_NAME = {"ABC"}>} AMOUNT) and when it did not yield 10, I went back and checked the dimension.

Try this way.

Data:

COMPANY_NAME,AMOUNT

ABC,10

BTY,20

ATE,10

ZYS,50

Re: sum of something with if conditon

actually i want only 2 bars in chart where there are sum of all values in a 1 bar starting with letter  'A' and 'B'

and the 2 bar with all the remaining like 'C', D........till Z

in my case it is still showing all the bars with there respective company name

Sorry for replying late as i was not so good.

Re: sum of something with if conditon

Try like this with Bar chart.

Script:

Data:

COMPANY_NAME,AMOUNT

ABC,10

BTY,20

ATE,10

ZYS,50

];

1. Do not select dimension.

2. Company AB expression:

3. Company Others expression:

4.Output
