## Calculate percentage complete

I have a report with each department (med affairs, clinical development, etc) and their employee training. The report has the training due date and the training completion date. I did an IF statement to populate ‘Compliant’ if they completed the training prior to the due date and ‘Non-Compliant’ for after due date.  I need to show the overall compliant/non-compliant percentage for each department. I did it in Excel and just did a pivot table that gave me the totals for each department and then manually calculated the %. Is there a way to set this up in Qlik so it will be easy each month? An example is below - I would like to present the bar chart below using Qlik Sense.

Hi Dave,

The easiest way to do this would probably be to create a Flag in the load script, for example:

Trainee,

DueDate,

CompletionDate,

IF(DueDate >= CompletionDate,1,0) AS CompliantFlag,

IF(DueDate >= CompletionDate,0,1) AS NonCompliantFlag

FROM (source connection string);

In the front end, you can use Sum(CompliantFlag) and Sum(NonCompliantFlag). So to get the %Compliant you'd use the formula Sum(CompliantFlag)/(Sum(CompliantFlag)+Sum(NonCompliantFlag)).

This is how I have my current Load:

Department,

Supervisor,

Trainee,

"Trainee Status",

"Job Code",

Course,

"Launch Date",

"Due Date",

Training_Status,

"Training Completion",

IF("Training Completion">"Due Date", 'NonCompliant','Compliant') as Compliant

I get a new field that shows NonCompliant or Compliant for each person. I see that your way is similar but a little different. With your way, would I be able to do a stacked bar chart showing the %compliant and %noncompliant for each department? Right now, I have a pivot table set up in Qlik that gives me the count of compliant and count of noncompliant for each department and I have to export the pivot table so that I can use it to generate a bar chart in excel.

## Re: Calculate percentage complete

Yes, you would simply create a bar chart and use the following Dimension and Measures:

Dimension: Department

Measure 1: Sum(CompliantFlag)/(Sum(CompliantFlag)+Sum(NonCompliantFlag))

Measure 2: Sum(NonCompliantFlag)/(Sum(CompliantFlag)+Sum(NonCompliantFlag))

You can also create a bar chart using your current load script, but you will need to use Set Analysis:

Dimension: Department

Measure 1: Count({<Compliant={'Compliant'}>}Compliant)/Count(Compliant)

Measure 2: Count({<Compliant={'Non-Compliant'}>}Compliant)/Count(Compliant)

You can read more about set analysis here: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/February2018/Subsystems/Hub/Content/ChartFunctions/SetAnalysis/set...

Both methods will work, but if you're not too comfortable with set analysis, I would suggest the first option.

Hi - check this out.

output :

I would rather prefer sarina wong's approach using flags as it improves the overall performance of the app when you are dealing with millions of records.

As you have mentioned your approach, i have written the script and expression as per your mentioned approach.
