## Re: total field

Try adding total <Dim1,Dim2> to the sum expression. Replace Dim1 and Dim2 with the first two dimensions of your pivot table.

sum(total <Dim1,Dim2>  if((Aggr(sum({<year={"2012"}, bg_t={'*'}, bg_t-={'b\g}, Holding=>} Quantity),AffiliateID, Holding,mes))>0 ,1,0))

See attached example for how it works.

## Re: total field

I'm wondering whether this approach can work for total <vMyVariable>?

It works fine: if within <> I write MyField , the formula then looks the following way:  sum(VALUE) / sum(total <MyField>  VALUE)

PROBLEM: what if MyField variates due to the drill down, so that it can be MyField1,MyField2,MyField3?

It does not work: if within <> I write vMyVariable containing the needed field, the formula then looks the following way:  sum(VALUE) / sum(total <vMyVariable>  VALUE)

Any ideas/suggestions are very much appreciated.
