## Qlikview scripting sum if statements

Good afternoon all,

I have been struggling though this for a week and I resigned that I can't get it.  In Microsoft access the working formula is

Sum(IIf([Unit Code 3]="3102",-[201150],IIf(([201110]+[507200])=0,[121100]+[122100],IIf(([121100]+[122100]+[507200])<>0,-[201110],0)))) AS Amount

in QV fieldname for Unit Code 3 is acct_unit3  .  The field for the account #'s acct is Match(acct,120100,121100,122100,122105,201110,201150,507200);

and field for \$ amount is dom_amount

A Coworker told me to do code like below

--------------------------------------------------------------

NoConcatenate

Test_01:
AffiliateCode|po_num|po_line, //key field
sum(dom_amount) as Test_amt
Resident
Temp_02
Where
Match(acct,201100,507200)
Group By
AffiliateCode|po_num|po_line;

Left Join(Temp_02)

AffiliateCode|po_num|po_line,
if(Test_amt = 0,1,0) as Condition_01
Resident
Test_01;

DROP Table Test_01;

------------------------------------------------------------------

and then to continue this for the rest of the conditions? He is swamped and I need more help.

Thanks,

Josh

It looks like he is using the left joins to take vertically stacked fields and turning them to horizontal fields.

I don't want to send you down another rabbit hole, but would the script below achieve the same thing using preload statements (not tested, ymmv):

Temp:
if (acct_unit3 = '3102',201150_Amt * -1,
if (201110_507200_Amt = 0,121100_122100_Amt,
if (121100_122100_507200_Amt != 0,201110_Amt * -1,0))) as Amount;

acct_unit3,
sum(201150_Amt) as 201150_Amt,
sum(201110_507200_Amt) as 201110_507200_Amt,
sum(121100_122100_Amt) as 121100_122100_Amt,
sum(121100_122100_507200_Amt) as 121100_122100_507200_Amt,
sum(201110_Amt) as 201110_Amt
group by KeyField;

AffiliateCode|po_num|po_line as KeyField, //key field
acct_unit3
if (acct = 201150,dom_amount,0.0) as 201150_Amt,
if (Match(acct,201110,507200) > 0,dom_amount,0.0) as 201110_507200_Amt,
if (Match(acct,121100,122100) > 0,dom_amount,0.0) as 121100_122100_Amt,
if (Match(acct,121100,122100,507200) > 0,dom_amount,0.0) as 121100_122100_507200_Amt,
if (acct = 201110,dom_amount,0.0) as 201110_Amt
resident YOUR_TABLE where Match(acct,120100,121100,122100,122105,201110,201150,507200) > 0
