## How to calculate a total in a column

Hi,

my table is a crossed one.

First dimension is a simple one, and second dimension is an AGGR one.

I am not able to add a calcultated total for the first dimension, that would not take the second dimension into account.

May you help ? An app is joined in this discussion.

Thanks a lot for you help. !

## Re: How to calculate a total in a column

Hi Franck,

I think you might want to create the "AGGR" dimension on the script. Something like:

```LOAD
DT & '|' & ID_SECTEUR as %AGGR_DIMT,
DATE_DEPART,
DATE_DEPART_V,
DT,
HEURE,
ID_CENTRE,
left (SECTEUR,2) as ID_SECTEUR,
NB_DEPARTS_ENGINS,
DH_DEB_DIMT,
HEURE_DEB_DIMT,
DH_DEPART,
FL_SEUIL,
DH_FIN
FROM [lib://QVD/DIMT.qvd](qvd)
WHERE year(DT) = 2015
and month(DT) = 9
and ID_SECTEUR < 10;

TMP_AGGR_DIMT:
DT & '|' & ID_SECTEUR   as %AGGR_DIMT,
sum(NB_DEPARTS_ENGINS) as AGGR_NB_DEPARTS_ENGINS,
max(FL_SEUIL) as AGGR_FL_SEUIL
RESIDENT
DIMT
GROUP BY
DT,
ID_SECTEUR;

AGGR_DIMT:
%AGGR_DIMT,
SUM(AGGR_NB_DEPARTS_ENGINS * AGGR_FL_SEUIL) as AGGR_NB_DEPARTS_ENGINS
RESIDENT
TMP_AGGR_DIMT
GROUP BY
%AGGR_DIMT;

DROP TABLE TMP_AGGR_DIMT;

```

This way you should be able to do the calculations easily.

But calculating it within the script avoid possibilty to use as many combination of filters as it required.

The aim is to have this total without modifying the script.

## Re: How to calculate a total in a column

Hi,

When selections are aplied to other filters they are basically going to narrow down the possibilities for DT and ID_SECTEUR and thus filtering the "AGGR_DMIT" table. So I believe that is not going to be a problem unless these other filters need to be taken into count on the aggregation function depending on selections, is that what you are saying?

Yes, exactly !
