## error in script with if or set analysis

Hi Friends,

i have a problem with a formula.

If I use

sum({\$<OC = {'Z100'}, SM = {'10'} , Linea_P -={'35'}>} F_Imp)

in a field of table it's run

but if I use the formula:

sum({\$<OC = {'Z100'}, SM = {'10'} , Linea_P -={'35'}>} F_K3) as F_Imp_Avv

FROM \$(vQVDDir)\COPA.QVD

(qvd);

or

{\$<OC = {'Z100'}, SM = {'10'} , Linea_P -={'35'}>} F_K3 as F_Imp_Avv

FROM \$(vQVDDir)\COPA.QVD

(qvd);

in the script it don't work.

I Tried with:

sum(if (OC = 'Z100' and SM = '10' and Linea_P <> '35', F_Imp ))

but don't work too.

Can you help me??

thanks a lot

## error in script with if or set analysis

Set analysis don't work in Script.

sum(if (OC = 'Z100' and SM = '10' and Linea_P <> '35', F_Imp ))

group by <all the fields u r using in the table.>

This should work correctly.

May be u r missing "group by " clause while loading the table.

Hey you would need to do the group by.

Something like below:

Cheers.

Test:

Country, City, Sales, Year

Australia, Melbourne, 500, 2008

India, Mumbai, 1600, 2008

India, Chennai, 2500, 2008

Australia, Melbourne, 700, 2009

India, Mumbai, 2000, 2009

India, Chennai, 3000, 2009

];

Test2:

sum(if(Year<>2008 and City='Mumbai',Sales)) as NewSales,

sum(if(Year=2009 and City<>'Chennai'and City <>'Mumbai',Sales)) as NewSales2

## error in script with if or set analysis

Hi,

my reading of the Reference Manual is that the script language doesn't actually support set expressions - these are only discussed in the RM in the context of chart expressions.  This issue threw me just last week, too!  Hence, in the script you'll need to take advantage of the if() function and the WHERE clause in your load statements.
