qlik sense - setting the totals in Pivot Table rows

In QlikView, I know how to set the formula for the totals row in a pivot table as the expression, or sum of rows, etc.

In QlikSense, it defaults to "total", which I assume is the total for the expression. However, in my case, I want it to be sum of rows.

When I click on the "Presentation" icon, I get this:


However, when I click on the slider, I get this:


The "Position" drop down doesn't drop down, and I can only change the label, not the data.

My rows are Qty, Cost, Extended Cost

my formula are sum(ItemQty), sum(ItemCost), and sum(ItemQty)*Sum(ItemCost). They are fine, except in the

total fields, where the displayed total is clearly incorrect:


Clearly, the "Extended Cost" is not equal to the sum of Qty (13563) x the sum of all ItemCosts ($498k).

I want the sum of rows for the Ext Cost to appear. Is this possible?

Re: qlik sense - setting the totals in Pivot Table rows

Is this issue with Pivot table of Straight table.

In Straight Table in Every measure you will get a option as Total Function.. From that drop down select Sum as Function..

In Pivot table YOu will have to write Seperate expression for Total



sum(Aggr(Sum(Qty), Dimension)),
