## Sumif function

Hi Guys!

Just trying to figure out the sumif equivalent in Qlikview.

From the forum I understood, it's =sum(if(.....

However I'm having some difficulties. So my aim is to get the total Net Contribution (NETCN) per account group.

I've followed all the steps on the forum, but for some reason the formula isn't working. Anyone has an idea?

=sum(if([Account Group], sum({<GL_1={NETCN},Dimension={ACT}>}Data)))

Take a straight table:

Dimension: [Account Group]

Exp: sum({<GL_1={NETCN},Dimension={ACT}>}Data)

If this is not what you want. Try to share a sample data and explain expected output against that.

## Re: Sumif function

Ah sorry, I'm trying to set up a waterfall so it needs to be in a graph. After figuring out the sumif function in Qlikview I'll add another sumif behind it, getting a standard rate per bottle sold

=sum(if([Account Group], sum({<GL_1={NETCN},Dimension={ACT}>}Data)))  /

sum(if([Account Group], sum({<GL_1={VOL},Dimension={ACT}>}Data)))

What is your dimension in the chart? Could share your sample app?

## Re: Sumif function

Have you tried using:

Sum({<GL_1={'NETCN'},Dimension={'ACT'}>}Data) / Sum({<GL_1={'VOL'},Dimension={'ACT'}>}Data)

Hi,

if you are trying to use "sum(if(" then the syntax is this: sum(if(condition,then, else))

in our case that syntax will be: sum(if(  GL_1='NETCN' and DIMENSION='ACT', Data))

if the if-clause is true then it will give as result the values from the field "Data" and then it will be sum(Data).

the other examples you have been given already are set analysis

Hope it helps,

Andrew
