Is it possible to combine cycle with condition

Hello,

I have created a report that uses a condition as well as cycle.

The condition checks if a chart has values.

The cycle field is each recipient.

My intention was that the condition should be tested for each cycle value since not all recipients should receive the report.

Only those who needs to take action should get the report.

But I suspect that the condition is tested before cycle is applied.

Does anyone know if there is a way to combine cycle with condition so the condition is tested for each cycle value?

Use  getcurrentfield(cyclegroupname)

Helllo,

Thank you for you reply.

How do you mean?

In the condition or in the Cycle?

In the condition I can only use a chart or a variable.

In the Cycle I can only choose a field.

So where should I use getcurrentfield()?

Re: Is it possible to combine cycle with condition

Is it possible to share a sample app and expected output?

Re: Is it possible to combine cycle with condition

Well here is an image that demonstrates the problem.

Adding an example with both QV and NP apps would take to much time.

The script for the app is:

data:

LOAD * Inline [

Person, Sales

1,1000

2,

];

The logic for my condition is to only move forward if the chart has a value.

When no selection in Person is made the chart has a value.

But if we select Person = 2 then the chart has no value.

The problem here is that the condition is applied before the cycle part thus the chart has a value.

If the condition was applied on each value in Person then only person 1 would be true.

Re: Is it possible to combine cycle with condition

Hi Martin,

I had a similar sitiuation and i have created flags in my qlik script to flag records only with values and i used such flag as a filter.

i know it is not ideal solution, but works as temporary workaround for me.

I think in April release these problem can be partialy addressed

regards

Lech

Re: Is it possible to combine cycle with condition

Hello,

OK similar to what I'm doing.

I'm going to remove the recipients from the app that should not get the report.

This way I don't need the condition at all.

All recipients that remain should get the report.

Thank you all for your input.

Hi,

No, you cannot use cycles and conditions.

In your case you need to add the filters to the users and the condition as report condition. The condition will be evaluated for each user and only if met the user will receive the report.

Best Regards,

Ruggero
