## Percentage calculation in chart

Hello, consider a column chart with the following:

Series: a, b, c

X-axis: X, Y, Z

|

|

|

|

|_a b c__a b c__a b c__

X          Y        Z

Looking at the following points on x-axis:

X:                                 Y:

a =      5                                   8

b =      2                                   1

c =      7                                   3

(total = 14                                 12)

What I would like is the following values in chart:

X:                                 Y:

a =      5/14=36%                      8/12=67%

b =      2/14=14%                      1/12=8%

c =      7/14=50%                      3/12=25%

|

|_36 14 50__67 8 25__........

X              Y

The numeric values is from count(value), so im not sure what the rest of the division should be.

Something like count(value) / [count(value) for all series on that one point on x-axis]

Thank you!

## Re: Percentage calculation in chart

Hi,

Try like this,

=Count(Value) / Count(total <X-axis Dimension> Value)

Can you post a sample?

Hope it helps

## Re: Percentage calculation in chart

Hi,

Try like this,

=Count(Value)/Count(total Value)

Can you post a sample?

Edit:

=Count(Value) / Count(total <X-axis Dimension> Value)

Hope it helps

I have already tried that without luck.

That worked as a charm! Do you mind explain what <....> does?

Hi,

It calculate individual total values in dimension..For example:

X total->  5+2+7 = 14          Y total ->      8+1+3 = 12

a =      5/14=36%                      8/12=67%

b =      2/14=14%                      1/12=8%

c =      7/14=50%                      3/12=25%

Hope you understand the concept.
