## Aggr Function

Hi everyone

I have a question for you

For my learning, I have a dummy table of customer Asset list (very simple table)

Customer | Work Asset Owned

Alan | Phone

Alan | Phone

Alan | PC Desktop

Alan | PC Laptop

Bernard | Phone

Bernard | PC Desktop

Bernard | PC Laptop

Bernard | PC Laptop

Bernard | PC Laptop

Cindy | Phone

Cindy | PC Desktop

My objective is to obtain the information about the most number of Asset owned by someone. So in this case, when building Pivot table:

1. For Alan, I want to see Phone (2) because he has 2 phones (which is the highest count of all assets he owns)

2. For Bernard, I want to see PC Laptop (3) because he has 3 PC Laptops

3. For Cindy, it can be anything since she only has 1 each (no Max value)

I am still learning and I think I have to use Aggr function, but I am not sure how.

Would anyone be able to help me?

## Re: Aggr Function

maybe this:

dimensions:

•  Customer
• Work Asset Owned

expression:

``max(aggr(if(count([Work Asset Owned]) >1, count([Work Asset Owned])), Customer, [Work Asset Owned]))``

## Re: Aggr Function

Is this what you are trying to get?

Expression used

``Sum(Aggr(If(Max(TOTAL <Customer> Aggr(Count([Work Asset Owned]), Customer, [Work Asset Owned])) = Count([Work Asset Owned]), Count([Work Asset Owned])), Customer, [Work Asset Owned]))``
