Count distinct is not working in script?

Dear community,

I found problem for script below, the FlightNumber is always showing 1...


Load Fltno,

    [Flt Dt],

    Count(distinct Fltno) * Count(distinct [Flt Dt])) as FlightNumber

resident FlightData

group by [Flt Dt], Fltno;

I think count distinct might not work in this way in script, anyone knows to workaround to overcome this?

it is working fine in expression in chart.

For special reason, i cannot have expression in the chart, i need a (number of flight) field,

so that the chart can directly use the field.

(limitation of GeoQlik flow chart, only can use field, expression is not working)

I need the number of flight field can corresponding to the filter selection. just like the figure show in blue text box.

Thanks and best regards,

Hi Jagan,

Thanks for this hint, i should group by route and [Flt Wk Dt].

But I just realized my expression to calculate number of flights is incorrect.

As shown in attachment, for ADL-KUL route, there should be 8 flights but my expression result is 14 flights.

= count (distinct Fltno) * count (distinct [Flt Dt]) is not the correct formula...

Appreciate if you could edit my expression.

Thanks and best regards,

Try any of this expressions

=Sum(Aggr(1, Fltno, [Flt Dt]))


= count(DISTINCT Fltno &  Ceil([Flt Dt]))
