Set Analysis - implied fields and dimensions

Hi All,

Hopefully a quick one.

I have 2 graphs stacked on above the other - both working out sales with a simple flag field set to qualify.

The bottom is simple and dimension is region so I've used:  Sum ( { < Flag = {1}> } Sales) - this works fine.

The one above has months as a dimension but I would like to retian the whole calendar year, however must be able to run region selection (so see region sales over calendar year) - which I cant seem to get??

Am currently using: Sum ( {1<Flag = {1},  Cal_Year={$(vCurrentYear) }  >} Sales)

As it stands this retains the entire year, bhoever the top graph (time dimension) is not affected by the selection of a region??

Pretty new at this so help much appreciated and any tips / pointers would be welcomed!!

     As per the scenario here, all you need is to have 'Month' as your first dimension and 'Region' as the second dimension in your chart. Then use the same expression as in your lower chart i.e Sum ( { < Flag = {1}> } Sales). As in ur expression : Sum ( {1<Flag = {1},  Cal_Year={$(vCurrentYear) }  >} Sales)

The 1 here specifies full set of all records in the expression. You may then provide listboxes for Year and Region selection as well. Hope this helps.

Hi barronfly!

Sum ( {1<Flag = {1},  Cal_Year={$(vCurrentYear) }  >} Sales)

see the '1' which i hv made bold in ur text.

Becz of this '1' ,ur expressions will not be affected by the selections u make in the list box.

And since u r taking region in the list box ,so when u selct any region ..it is not affcting the data in ur chart.

u hv to remove it...if u want ur exprssions to get affected by the selections u make in list box.For more detail u can refer Set analysis in Help option.

Hi Erika / Lawrence ,

Thank you for the replies – your explanations do make sense and I’m seeing the error in my ways

Does raise 2 questions though.

Firstly then, the problem with my expression is that I am applying the 1<> to Flag={1}, howecer Flag={1} should be part of the base function (Sum of Sales where Flag = 1).

So what would be correct syntax then to correct this? Have tried a number of permutations but can’t seem to get it?

Secondly, I have now done away with the flag altogether and read this straight in through the script as Clean_Sales**. Then I have nicked a string of script for my expression that works to a degree, as follows:

Sum ({$<Cal_Year={$(vCurrentYear)},Cal_Month=>} Clean_Sales)

This works to exclude any selection in of month from my calendar month, which is what I want. However, how do I exclude Quarter and week from calendar selection also?

**I used the clean_sales as I was unable to apply both the $<> and the flag reference – as in the first question above.

     You may use:

Sum ({1<Cal_Year={$(vCurrentYear)}>} Clean_Sales)

'1' here specifies full set of all records in the application. So this would ignore any selections in Month, Quarter and Week. Hope this helps.
