List box as table

I have a chart displaying data from each of my fields. It's important that it stays as one single object as it will be used dynamically elsewhere.

'Year' is the key field that I want to show all possible related values for. However, there is no relationship between the other fields at all (at least not one that I want to show).

I've attached an excel doc, in the first tab is the way the data displays at the moment, and in the second tab is how I want it to display.

Basically, I want to remove duplicates and essentially show what would appear in a list box for each field, for each value in 'Year'.

Hope that makes sense! Any help appreciated.

Jess

Re: List box as table

Hi Varun,

Unless I'm missing something, the 'Multi List Box' in your application is just showing my data in a pivot table - which is what I don't want it to do!

Re: List box as table

Thank you Rasly - that looks great!

Just trying to work out how you've done it

Have just realised it's all done in the script. Unfortunately I can't do that as I need my data model to stay the same

Re: List box as table

Hi Jessica,

Ok, then without changing the model, you wanted the same to be implemented in the UI itself?

If so, I will try and get back to you if there is any luck.

Re: List box as table

Hi Rasly,

That's right - preferably would like the layout to be the same as the 2nd tab.

Thanks for your help!

Re: List box as table

Hi Jessica,

Try a pivot table with calculated dimension:

=ValueLoop(1,$(=Max(Aggr(FieldValueCount($Field),$Field))))

Edit: Need this dimension too - $Field

and expression

=FieldValue($Field,ValueLoop(1,$(=Max(Aggr(FieldValueCount($Field),$Field)))))

to get:

=ValueLoop(1,30) $Field Section ASection BSection CSection DSection ESection GYear

Re: List box as table

Hi Andrew,


Thanks so much for this.

Is there a way to include the 'Year' field in the expressions so that possible values are evaluated for each year

I would also need to be able to restrict which fields show as I have other fields in the script that I do not want to be included in the pivot table (apologies - I probably should have mentioned this in my initial query, but was trying to keep things simple!).

Thanks,
Jess

Re: List box as table

Hi Jessica,

Make your pivot table with these dimensions:

Year

=ValueLoop(1,$(=Max(Aggr(FieldValueCount($Field),$Field))))

=if($Field <> 'Year',$Field) // In the dimensions tab check Suppress When Value Is Null

Your expression is :

=FieldValue(if($Field <> 'Year',$Field),ValueLoop(1,$(=Max(Aggr(FieldValueCount(if($Field <> 'Year',$Field)),$Field)))))

Hopefully that will work for you.

cheers

Andrew
