Pivot table numbers change when I drill down on rows

I have a pivot table which I would like users to drill down on rows as follows:

Location

     Grower

          Ranch

               Commodity

                    Work Order

The number they will be viewing is a formula, based on other formulas. The resulting number for this formula seems to change as I drill down.  Here is the formula for Total Profit/Loss:

Net Proceeds- ValueHarvested.

Net Proceeds is defined as Sum(GrossProceeds) - Sum(GrossCost)

ValueHarvested is defined as (Sum(Acres) * Avg(CostPerAcre))

The final expression looks like this:

sum(GrossProceeds) - sum(GrossCost)) - (Sum(Acres) * Avg(CostPerAcre)

I've done some digging around in the forums and I can't quite figure out what might be causing the numbers to change as I drill down. Could it be that I need to use Aggr? Perhaps I need to use Dimensionality? Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Here's what the numbers look like before I drill down to level 3:

When I drill down to level 3, it changes to this:

Pivot numbers change 2.jpg

Other numbers change too, not just the Total Profit/Loss number that I mentioned above.

I created a separate "test" pivot table, that includes fewer measures. In the test pivot table, everything works fine:

I think it has something to do with the other measures in the "broken" pivot table; either there are too many (11), or one or more of them is causing my expression to get "confused".

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi.

Check the expression FldOnBgt%, you are using a key field: "WorkOrder", you should create another field with this, called "WorkOrderCount" to be able to use it in the expression: Sum (FldOnBgtFlag) / Count (DISTINCT WorkOrderCount)

Re: Pivot table numbers change when I drill down on rows

Hi.

I have had a similar problem.

What I did is generate a table with all the necessary data for the formula and then, taking your example, I used the following formula:

avg(GrossProceeds - GrossCost - (Acres * CostPerAcre))

If this does not work could you upload sample data to be able to test?

Regards.

PD: sorry, my english is poor. I hope you understand.

Re: Pivot table numbers change when I drill down on rows

You can try this expression too.

Sum(Aggr((sum(GrossProceeds) - sum(GrossCost)) - (Sum(Acres) * Avg(CostPerAcre)),

Location,Grower,Ranch,Commodity,Work Order))

Same behavior, unfortunately.

Same result.  I'll go ahead and upload a copy of the application separately.

Hi.

See the attached example.

I make a "Binary" to the original .qvf.

I worked on the "Tot Prof / Loss" column.

Re: Pivot table numbers change when I drill down on rows

I think I see what you are doing...but I don't think it is working when I do the same thing in my application. I added the following to the data load editor after the  Budget table is built:

Left Join(Budget)

Load RanchLotWOKey,

  Avg(CostPerAcre) as CostPerAcreB

Resident WorkOrders

Group By RanchLotWOKey;

I changed my variable to point to the new CostPerAcreB measure, but the numbers are too high.

I've attached an updated copy; if you have time to look I would appreciate it.

Thanks.

Re: Pivot table numbers change when I drill down on rows

Hi.

Check the column "NetProceeds", it has value 0 or null and in the previous example had values.

Regards.
