Straight Table Expression Issue


I have a straight table with dimension product_name. In one of my product I am keeping market volume.

I need the value of product_vol/market_vol.

MY expression is like this

sum(volume)/sum({$<product_name=,product_id={1} >} volume)

I am keeping the market volume in product_id 1.

But I am not getting the right value in market volume.

Please let me know if there is any way to get the market volume.

Re: Straight Table Expression Issue

Maybe you want to ignore all selections instead of only product_name:

sum(volume)/sum({1<product_id={1} >} volume)

Re: Straight Table Expression Issue

Hi Gysbert,

I tried this one. But it is not working fine for table expression.

In text box this formula is working fine for me to get the market volume.

If I am using this formula in variable its working fine for me. But in table I have 13 columns.

the expression for first column

sum({1<Date_id={1} >} volume)/vMarket_Volume

in variable my formula is sum({1<product_id={1},Date_id={1} >} volume)

If I am going through this way I need to use 13 variables. Is there any other way (with out using variable) to get the right value ?
