## Problem with "Total"

Dear QV-Designers,

I want to calculate the ratio of the discount per "employee"

therefore i use the expression:

SUM ( { <TypeOfVoucher={'Sale'} , DiscountID = {'Reduction'} >} AmoutOfDiscount

These expression works fine.

I want to divide the mentioned expression by the total amount of discount of the store,

but i dont know how to handle this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

so long

May be like this

SUM ( { <TypeOfVoucher={'Sale'} , DiscountID = {'Reduction'} >} AmoutOfDiscount)

/

SUM ( { <TypeOfVoucher={'Store'} , DiscountID = {'Reduction'} >} AmoutOfDiscount)

## Re: Problem with "Total"

nope;

this doesn't work

total <Store>

somewhere,

but it isn't clear to me where exactly.

/sum(total <Store>AmoutOfDiscount)

Hi,

Try this.

SUM ( { <TypeOfVoucher={'Sale'} , DiscountID = {'Reduction'} >} AmoutOfDiscount) /

SUM ( { <TypeOfVoucher={'Sale'} , DiscountID = {'Reduction'} >} Total AmoutOfDiscount)

hi,

unforunately the formula still doesn't work right.

but the solution of Kaushik seems to be one step closer to the disered goal.

Hi,

I think you need to expand the set analysis on the bottom line of the expression Kaushik posted, so that the employee field is ignored and it's able to grab the total for the whole store

SUM ( { <TypeOfVoucher={'Sale'} , DiscountID = {'Reduction'} >} AmoutOfDiscount) /

SUM ( { <TypeOfVoucher={'Sale'} ,[your empoyee field here] =, DiscountID = {'Reduction'} >} Total AmoutOfDiscount)

as at present I think it is just grabbing the total for the empoyee

hope that helps

thanks
