Hi,

I have a if function with the following conditions:

if((not match([Product Type],'DE','PA','RE','SA','CE','AA','VA','5M','FA') and

[Sales Trn Detail DCIO TRADE IND] =1 and [Trans Trade Class]='S' and not match([Trans Status Code],'D')), sum([Sales Amount USD]))

and I have replaced it with the following set analysis:

sum({\$<[Product Type]-= {'DE','PA','RE','SA','CE','AA','VA','5M','FA'},[Sales Trn Detail DCIO TRADE IND]={1},[Trans Trade Class]={'S'},[Trans Status Code] -= {'D'}>}[Sales Amount USD])

and they gives me different result for me.

Thanks,

Sandip

Try this?

sum({\$<[Product Type]-= {'DE','PA','RE','SA','CE','AA','VA','5M','FA'},[Sales Trn Detail DCIO TRADE IND]={1},[Trans Trade Class]={'S'}>+<[Trans Status Code] -= {'D'}>} [Sales Amount USD])

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

Try like this

sum({\$<[Product Type]= {"*"}-{'DE','PA','RE','SA','CE','AA','VA','5M','FA'},[Sales Trn Detail DCIO TRADE IND]={1},[Trans Trade Class]={'S'},[Trans Status Code] = {"*"}- {'D'}>}[Sales Amount USD])

It's always better to create the Flag in script for long conditions to make expression simpler

if((not match([Product Type],'DE','PA','RE','SA','CE','AA','VA','5M','FA') and

[Sales Trn Detail DCIO TRADE IND] =1 and [Trans Trade Class]='S' and not match([Trans Status Code],'D')), 1) as Flag

Expression:

=Sum({<Flag={1}>} [Sales Amount USD])

Hi Sandip,

may be because Set Analysis is per chart, non per Row.

If() is per Row.

Hi There,

This could be happening for a number of reasons.  Some suggestions:

1)  Are any of your [Product Type] or [Trans Status Code] values (or fields associated with them) nulls ?  -= in Set Analysis will work differently to "not match" in these cases

2)  Are you sure that the Product Type values, for instance, are not repeated in a way you're not anticipating?  I've attached an example of how similar expressions can "go wrong" based on the underlying data.

The particular way in which your result is wrong, or some sample data would be helpful.  Is the Set Analysis returning a lower value than you're expecting?  A higher value?
