## How to add calculation in expression that based on the value from dimension field.

Hi All

How can I use the formula you giving in form of table.

Calc1 = Billed Revenue in Close Month [Jun only] / Total Billed Revenue of entire month [Jan-Dec]

I want to make

| Month | Calc1 |

| May       | 0.289 |

| June     | 0.301 |

im using expression below but the calc1 shows 0 and not showing any dimension in table.

Expression:

sum ({< OppForecast= {'1'},[SPM Close Month] = {'\$(=Month([SPM Date]))'}>}[Est. Billed Revenue For Current Year])/ sum ({< OppForecast= {'1'},>}[Est. Billed Revenue For Current Year])

Dimension:

=Date([SPM Date],'MMM-YY')

maye be

``````Expression:

sum ({< OppForecast= {'1'},[SPM Close Month] = {'\$(=Month([SPM Date]))'}>} [Est. Billed Revenue For Current Year])/ sum ({< OppForecast= {'1'}>} [Est. Billed Revenue For Current Year])``````

can you share a sample data ?

if your expression is exactly the same you are using, there is a comma to much in your sum expression and before the character  >

sum ({< OppForecast= {'1'},>

You may want to comment on whether either of two posts helped or not as well...  I would suspect folks have been hesitant to spend more time on things not knowing if you checked what they suggested in those posts?  Once you comment on that, I would expect you may get some further responses.

Here is a Design Blog post on Set Analysis that may be of some help too:

There are some further links to other blog posts at the bottom, just FYI.  Hopefully these may help you too.
