How to count contribution of a dimension on another dimension

Hi,

I cannot find out how to count a contribution of a product sales in sales of whole category of products.

The table may look like:

Dimension:

Category

Dimension:

Product

Expression:

Sum of Sales

Expression:

Contribution on Category

A110should be sum of all sales in category A (50) / sum of sales of product 1 in category A (10) ==> result is 20%
A220
A320
Subtotal50100%
B120the same for all categories..

I tried to do it this way:

=Sum(TOTAL<Product>SALES)/Sum(TOTAL<Category>SALES)

but it does not work..neither =Sum(SALES)/Sum(TOTAL<Category>SALES) does not work..

Please help me.

Thank you so much for any suggestion!

Thanks, but as I mentioned before, I have already tried this, but it also does not work.

If I use it, it counts contribution of a product on ALL categories

Seems to be working:

I attached a sample app below. Seems to be working fine in that case, unless there is some problem with the data behind the scenes.

Try this


=Sum(TOTAL<Category,Product>SALES)/Sum(TOTAL<Category>SALES)

Thank you so much...the original solution Sum(Sales)/ Sum(TOTAL <Category> Sales) works just fine, I just forgot that I use alias for the Category -> that's why it did not work..

Solved.
