syntax - function / expression / set analysis


Slightly confused over syntax and maybe naming conventions...

Is a set analysis formula the same as entering a formula in the expression or function(fx) field (of lets say a bar chart or KPI object)?

I have watched quite a few of the Qlik videos and was under the impression that when typing in a forumla in the 'fx' field I should be using curly braces, square brackets etc. Yet I have seen a number of formulas that work just fine without any of that





- not a curly brace in sight

yet a curly brace is used here

Count({<Status = {"DONE"}, Approved= {"YES"}>} PERSON_ID)

If these are two separate 'things', i.e. entering a formula is not the same as set analysis, then is there help on the syntax's for both, with examples somewhere?

Hope i'm being clear....

Set analysis is used to show results outside of your selections. You can look here for a basic introduction to set analysis
