Set analysis without any aggregation

Hi all,

I'm a new learner in QlikView.

I was curious to know whether we can use Set analysis even sum/count/avg...etc functions were not used??

If so, can someone help me with a set analysis statement for:

If(ID='1', Name);

You can use set analysis using only() function.

only() is the only non-aggregate function where set analysis can be used.

in your case.:

Only({$<ID={'1'}>}Name)

if you use this as dimension in any chart then:

aggr(Only({$<ID={'1'}>}Name),ListOfOtherDimensions)

you can not use set analysis on naked fields

it must be used in aggregations like sum/avg/count etc

Hi Graham,

For charts we can have calculated dimensions , there you can use such things but as Sasidhar told you cannot have a if condition for an expression but you can have like this

Sum(if(D='A', Value))

Please come up with some more data so that we can reach you.

Thanks
