## Totals function - Auto and Sum

When i use 'Auto' in total fuctions the total value i get is 5.35% but when i choose 'Sum' in Total functions i get 3.24%.

The individual values are same for both Value 0 and Value 1 as formula i am using here is

(\$(='(1+Sum({<B=Comp,DateField={"' & GetFieldSelections(DateField,'"}>} Sales*0.01)) * (1+Sum({<B=Comp, DateField={"') & '"}>} Sales*0.01))')-1)/100

My question :

i want to get total value using expression, so i put total just before sales in the formula

(\$(='(1+Sum({<B=Comp,DateField={"' & GetFieldSelections(DateField,'"}>} total Sales*0.01)) * (1+Sum({<B=Comp, DateField={"') & '"}>} total Sales*0.01))')-1)/100

and it gives me 5.35

How do i get 3.24 instead of 5.35 using expression ?

my question is how do i achieve that sum total using expression because i need to use that total at some other place

May be this

Sum(Aggr(

(\$(='(1+Sum({<B=Comp,DateField={"' & GetFieldSelections(DateField,'"}>} Sales*0.01)) * (1+Sum({<B=Comp, DateField={"') & '"}>} Sales*0.01))')-1)/100

expression:

sum((\$(='(1+Sum({<B=Comp,DateField={"' & GetFieldSelections(DateField,'"}>} total Sales*0.01)) * (1+Sum({<B=Comp, DateField={"') & '"}>} total Sales*0.01))')-1)/100)

Sorry,already tried this but it doesn't work because that formula you enclosed within sum gives a single value 5.35

Did you specify your dimensions in there?

Besides did you try the alternative approach to calculating what you intended?

=Exp(Sum(Aggr(Log(1+Sum(Sales)), TimeKey))) - 1
