## Set analysis to ignore a dimension

I have a chart table like this :

YearMonthValueLast Year's Total Value
2017Dec1000
2017Nov1200
2017Oct1500
2017Sep2000
....etc.
2016Dec1201,250
2016Nov801,250
2016Oct1501,250
2016Sep901,250
etc.....

In the last column, I would like always to have the total value for 2016, but for Year=2017, the column has zeroes.

I am using the expression:

SUM( {1 <Year = {'2016'} > } Value)

So the expression is being affected by the Year dimension. How do I ignore this dimension?

Thanks.

## Re: Set analysis to ignore a dimension

What do you see if you put

=SUM( {1 <Year = {'2016'} > } Value)

in a text box?

You should see this value also in the least granular partial sum row in your table chart.

If you do, then Kaushik's expression using the TOTAL qualifier should work.

If not, then please post a sample QVW.

Hi,

try this.

SUM( {1 <Year = {'2016'} > } total Value)

Hi

Thanks for responding.

Your expression gives me the total for both years (ie. 2016 + 2017). Seems to ignore the set analysis.

Hi,

It does work for me in my app.

Alt(Sum(TOTAL <Year>  {<Year={2016}>} Value),0)

May be you are looking for this

Below(Sum(Value), 12)

or better yet, use The As-Of Table

This still produces zero values for 2017

Hi Sunny

Thanks as always for your response. I can see that both your suggestions will probably work, although I haven't tried them.

I felt my expression should work and was hoping that someone would correct an error. I must not understand the purpose of {1} in a set analysis.

Would be able to point out what your desired output is/was? What you have posted above is what you are getting, but what do you need?

Hi Sunny

I need the total value for 2016 (ie. 1,250) to appear in the last column of every row.
