Using a button to extract a variable's values

Hi,

I am making a straight table chart in Qlikview and I am trying to select certain values in the chart by using a button.

My chart looks like the image below. Burn rate comes from the variable 'vBurnRate' which comes from dividing Dev % Burn by Dev % Complete. It is currently $(vBurnRate) in the expression. The colors are indicated by greater than or less than percentages. For example red is if the Burn Rate is <85% and also if it is >115%. It is yellow if it is 85-89% and also if it is 111-115%. It is green if it is 90-110%.

I am trying to make a button that can select, based on Burn Rate, if it is red, yellow, or green based on the percentage range above.

Can you share information about your background color expression and the dimensions to help you better

The dimension I am using is the Dev % Complete which is just a number as a percent. For example 30%.

My expressions are:

- Dev % Burn:

     $(vDevBurn)

     This variable's value is: (sum({$<[Tracker.Category]={"Development"}>} [Tracker.Time Reported Actual]) / ([Developer.Dev Estimated Efforts]))

-Burn Rate:

     $(vBurnRate)

     This variable's value is: $(vDevBurn)/[Developer.Dev % Complete]

The background color expression for the fields are:

if($(vBurnRate)<'85%',rgb(255,110,110),

if($(vBurnRate)>='85%' and $(vBurnRate)<'90%',rgb(255,255,0),

if($(vBurnRate)>='90%' and $(vBurnRate)<='100%',rgb(34,139,34),

if($(vBurnRate)>='101%' and $(vBurnRate)<='110%',rgb(34,139,34),

if($(vBurnRate)>='111%' and $(vBurnRate)<='115%',rgb(255,255,0),

If($(vBurnRate)>'115%',rgb(255,110,110)    

  ))))))

Can you try this in a list box expression:

Aggr(If($(vBurnRate) < '85%', 'Red',

If($(vBurnRate)>='85%' and $(vBurnRate)<'90%', 'Yellow',

If($(vBurnRate)>='90%' and $(vBurnRate)<='100%', 'Green',

If($(vBurnRate)>='101%' and $(vBurnRate)<='110%', 'Green',

If($(vBurnRate)>='111%' and $(vBurnRate)<='115%', 'Yellow',

If($(vBurnRate)>'115%', 'Red')))))), [Dev % Complete])

Hi,

Can you check the variable(vBurnRate) value shows with % or only numbers ? like 85% or 0.85?

may be try this..

if($(vBurnRate)<0.85,rgb(255,110,110),
if($(vBurnRate)>=0.85 and $(vBurnRate)<0.9,rgb(255,255,0),
if($(vBurnRate)>=0.9 and $(vBurnRate)<=1,rgb(34,139,34),
if($(vBurnRate)>=1.01 and $(vBurnRate)<=1.1,rgb(34,139,34),
if($(vBurnRate)>=1.11 and $(vBurnRate)<=1.15,rgb(255,255,0),
If($(vBurnRate)>1.15,rgb(255,110,110)   
))))))

I cannot use a list box because I have two other fields that are in my chart. I have names of developers and a WR # they are working on. When I did try it, only a few numbers connected to the colors.

It works with both % and with numbers. When I tried <85% it worked and when I tried <0.85 it worked as well.
