## Sum Aggr Sum with multiple set analysis query

Hi all,

I have an expression where I need to use multiple set analysis criteria. A simplified version is below

Sum({<Set Analysis Criteria 1>} Aggr (Sum {<Set Analysis Criteria 1>}  Sales), Division))

+

Sum({<Set Analysis Criteria 2>} Aggr (Sum {<Set Analysis Criteria 2>}  Sales), Division))

I was hoping and expecting that I could combine them into a simpler version, e.g.

Sum({<Set Analysis Criteria 1>+<Set Analysis Criteria 2>}

Aggr (

Sum {<Set Analysis Criteria 1>+<Set Analysis Criteria 2>}  Sales), Division))

but this isnt giving me the same answer.

Does it not work like this? Or is it not working in mine becuse of the set analysis criteria I am using?

I would be grateful of any help.

Also, as a side question, do I necessary need the same Set analysis criteria after both "sums" in a sum-aggr-sum expression?

Another way to do this would be (not that it would be any better)

Sum(Aggr(

RangeSum(Sum({<Transaction_Type={'C'}>}Value),

-Sum({<Transaction_Type={'C'}, Customer_Name={'Void'}>}Value),

-Sum({<Transaction_Type={'C'}, Customer_Type={2}, Customer_Name={'*'}-{'Void'}>}Value))

, CustomerID, Week))

Not always are they going to work... if the set analysis overlap, the sum from the two expressions can overlap and the two expressions can give you very different numbers.

Please post full metric to check

## Re: Sum Aggr Sum with multiple set analysis query

My real expression is something more like

Sum ({<Transaction_Type={'C'}>}

Aggr (Sum {<Transaction_Type={'C'}>}Value), CustomerID, Week))

-

Sum ({<Transaction_Type={'C'},  Customer_Name={'Void'}>}

Aggr (Sum {<Transaction_Type={'C'}, Customer_Name={'Void'}>}Value), CustomerID, Week))

-

Sum ({<Transaction_Type={'C'}, Customer_Type={2}, Customer_Name={'*'}-{'Void'}>}

Aggr (Sum {<Transaction_Type={'C'}, Customer_Type={2}, Customer_Name={'*'}-{'Void'}>}Value), CustomerID, Week))

So, its a case of

Show me the sum off all C transactions

Less all C transactions for Voids

Less all C transactions for Type 2 customers except Voids (as they have been excluded above)

If someone can show me a better / cleaner way of writing that, I would appreciate it

in which object you are using the expression ? as you are using aggr(sum() it must be a text box.

when you said less all you meant diffrence or exclusion ? if exclusion and i understood it correctly than you dont need a complex expression.

HI,

try this

Sum(

Aggr(

Sum ( {<Transaction_Type={'C'} ,  Customer_Type-={2} , Customer_Name-={'Void'}>} Value)

, CustomerID, Week

)

)

Thanks, that has worked and reduced the calculation time - which is what I was trying to achieve with this

## Re: Sum Aggr Sum with multiple set analysis query

Thank you, I did think about this after I posted the question, but there is another criteria which I didnt include which means there is some overlapping and so this wouldnt work in my case
