# Meaning of Some Paretheses

I am confused about some Paretheses like

{   }

<

and so on please explain what are their meaning.

• ###### Re: Meaning of Some Paretheses

{} is curly brackets and < is angular bracket. < is also known as logical less than sign.

• ###### Re: Meaning of Some Paretheses

{} - is used in set analysis - ex. Sum ({1} Value)

<> along with TOTAL is used to include the dimensions in a chart to disregard in aggregation function. Ex. Sum ( total <dim1> Value)

• ###### Re: Meaning of Some Paretheses

Sum ({1} Value) means we are taking the sum of the value but what is the meaning of {1}

• ###### Re: Meaning of Some Paretheses

{1} - means disregarding all selections

• ###### Re: Meaning of Some Paretheses

Hi,

Sum ({1} Value)

{1} ignores all the selections done in the list boxes.  It wouldn't consider the selections it always sums up the entire Value.
