I have created a pivot table and I'm using the partial sum total on one dimension from the presentation tab. The problem is the incorrect totals that are coming up. Any suggestions on how to correct the partial sum totals would really be appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Pivot tables will evaluate your partial sums as expression total, while you probably expect a sum of rows.
Please check the Help pages for 'Sum of rows in pivot tables' using advanced aggregation.
Your expression might need to be changed to something like
=sum( aggr( sum(Value), TableDimension1, TableDimension2, ...))
Hope this helps,
Thanks for your reply. I have 2 expressions as follows:
EXP 1) count( value)
EXP 2) count(value)/count( value2)
I'm using 2 dimensions. Now, I'm using the partial sums on 1 dimension , just to get the total of my expression 1. So, basically in my pivot table I want to add a Total row showing the expression total.
I'm not sure where to use the sum expression you stated above.
thanks. I will really apprecite your reply.
When you are saying, you want the expression total, I think you should already see it...
Could you post a screenshot of your table here and the values for the total you expect to see?
If you want the sum of rows (what I still assume), you need to use your expression, i.e. the count( value) within the aggr() function, and then a sum around all to get the sum of rows, like
=sum( aggr( count( value), dimension1, dimension2))
You need to replace dimension1, dimension2 by your actual dimension field names, of course.
This is a screenshot of the pivot table. As you could see , the count total in both the columns is showing a wrong total. It is not accurate. I need the total of all the columns at the bottom.
Thank you. I really appreciate your prompt replies.
Yes, you are right. The totals should be 2660 and 2609. If you are saying that i should another expressions =sum( aggr( count( value), COLOR, STATUS)), then that would add another column to it. And I've tried it, but its still not working. Its displaying nothing.
Well you could and should use the expression instead of your original one (but for testing, having another one should bother).
Please check that the field names are correct and correctly spelled, also the case is correct (field names are case sensitive). Are your field called 'value', 'COLOR' and 'STATUS' ?
Could you upload a small sample here?
Hi , I think this is problem of Loosly coupled dimensions. Are you using dimensions and expressions from two different tables lnked on some key. If yes the please chek your key this key is not giving you 1:1 linking.
