Indirect Set Analysis

• p( ) = Possible

• e( ) = Excluded

Excluded

Possible

Customer = p({<Year={\$(=max(Year)-1)}>} Customer)

Returns customers who had an association to last year.

sum(({<Year={\$(=max(Year))},

Customer = p({<Year={\$(=max(Year)-1)} Customer>}) Sales)

Returns this year’s sales for customers who had sales last year.

Indirect Set Analysis

sum({\$<CompanyName = p({\$<CategoryName={'Baby Clothes'}>}

CompanyName)>} Sales)

Sales for Customers who purchased Baby Clothes.

The set p({}) returns the values of CompanyName (Customer) that

purchased Baby Clothes.

sum({\$<CompanyName = p({\$<CategoryName={'Baby Clothes'}>}

CompanyName) - p({\$<CategoryName={'SportsWear'}>}

CompanyName)>} Sales)

Sales for Customers who purchased Baby Clothes but not

Sportswear.The first set p({}) returns CompanyName that purchased

Baby Clothes.The second set p({}) returns CompanyName that

Purchased SportsWear.The Unary Operator "-" between the two gives

a list of Customers (CompanyName)that belong to the first but not the

other set.

## Re: Indirect Set Analysis for P() and E()

i am also Confused,

We can write like this

Sum({<Year -= {"*09*"} Sales)

sum( {\$<year = E({1<year={"*09*"}>})>} sales)

Can you explain, Which scenario we are using P() and E()?

Life is so rich, and we need to respect to the life !!!

## Re: Indirect Set Analysis for P() and E()

What you are doing is entering a 'normal' Set Analysis formula. That is used for direct selection of transctions to include in the calcullation of an expression - e.g. all transaktions in the years containing the value 09 (in your example).

P & E are used for inderect selections. e.g.

1. Show all sales for customers which have bought a specific product.
2. Show all sales for customers which have not bought a specific product.
3. Show all sales for customers which have bought a specifik product but NOT bought another specific product

etc .......

Makes sense?
