## How to turn a dimension in the same table?

Hi,

I've encountered a problem I can not solve and need some help!

I have the dimensions "From Destination" and "To Destination". I use this to calculate the number of tons between differents locations, with the expression sum(tons). But, I need to turn this expression to how many tons who are sent back along the same line in return.

Hi Tom,

Qlikview doesn't allow to column names to be same.

So you need to change the 2nd From and To Destination to From Destination 1 and To Destination 1 and Tons to be Tons Returned.

That way it will be easy for you to write an expression.

Because I suppose you need extra column for Return from London to Oslo as shown in your image

Hi Andrew,

This is just a test file since the original is too big and not allowed to publish (company rule).

Hope this helps describing my problem...

Hi Tom,

You can store the From Destination value in vTo variable (Oslo) and ToDestination value in vFrom variable (London).

and in the expression you can write

=sum({<[From Destination]={'\$(vTo)'},[To Destination]={'\$(vFrom)'}>}Tons)

Do you have just 1 from and To location or you have many?

Hi Ankita,

Thank you for responding and for the changes you did in the QV! This was good input and a new approach!

However, I want the returned tonnes in the same line as in the example picture that is attached.

Anyway, thanks responding! I really appreciate that!

## Re: How to turn a dimension in the same table?

In your data table you have a separate row for the returns right?

Cant we bring them to the same row by creating extra columns?
