## Question on Set Analysis interaction with user selection

I have a table like this

 Dept Type Manager Finance Temp A Finance Employee A Finance Employee B Finance Employee B Finance Temp A Sales Temp C Sales Employee C Sales Employee D Sales Employee D Sales Employee D

and I would like to show in text field the % breakdown by Employee Type for a department

I use this formula to compute the % :

% Employee in Sales dept : Count({\$<Dept={Sales}, Type={Employee}>} Type) / Count({\$<Dept={Sales} TOTAL Type) = 4/5=80%

% Temp in Sales dept        : Count({\$<Dept={Sales}, Type={Temp}>} Type) / Count({\$<Dept={Sales} TOTAL Type) = 1/5= 20%

So far so good.  However, when a selection is made on the Type listbox, , the above computations no longer work. i.e. if I were to select Temp in the Type list box, the above computation will show 400% ( 4 /1 ) and 100% (1/1) when the correct result should be 0% and 100%.

How do I modify the set analysis formula to take into account the selected value ?

Thanks !

I learnt 2 new useful functions - GetFieldSelections() and GetSelectedCount()
