# Sum(total <dim1 >[Expression1]) in Pivot table is not working?

Dear Community,

I would like to use expression in another expression in pivot table with Sum(total <dim1 >[Expression]) condition,

but it is not working, anyone has idea?

Attached herewith the sample (where it is not a real case which is much more complicated)

The reason why I need to apply:

Expression1 is actually an input field, which is one of the column in table.

Client can change the value for that input column, and any change in this column will reflect to Expression2.

where Expression2 = Sum(total <dim1 >[Expression1])

There are 3 conditions to calculate Expression2 based on expression1 value,

Example:

if(expression1<100 ,  expression1*0.01,

if(expression1=100, expression1*0.02,

if(expression1>100, expression1*0.03, 0)))

Hope someone could help!

Thanks,

Chanel

What logic you want to apply here?

Update :

Try as Below

SUM(IF(Aggr(SUM(TOTAL <Month> Sales),Salesman)>=15000,Sales))

• ###### Re: Expression in Pivot table (used by another Expression)

Hi,

Try like this

if( [Total Sales] >= 15000, sum(Total <Month> Sales))

try this expression for the second one.

If (ColumnNo(1) >= 15000,  OptionTrue, OptionFalse)

Changing Options for you apropiate formula

Dear all,

The sample is just the example, my expression is far more complicated than this, my problem is

how can i call another expression in the same table,

if i have that condition

= sum(total <abc>

if([expression1] = 'blabla', 'Sales'))

Is it not possible to use expression in sum(total ...) ?

Thanks,

Chanel

What is your LOGIC? can you please elaborate little more that what you want to achieve?

Thanks

Well, the expression1 is actually an input field, which is one of the column in table.

Client can change the value for that input column, and any change in this column will reflect to expression2.

So expression2 has to call expression1, then based on expression1 value,

there are 3 conditions:

Example:

if(expression1<100 ,  expression1*0.01,

if(expression1=100, expression1*0.02,

if(expression1>100, expression1*0.03, 0)))

At last, we would need to get the total of this 3 conditions, that's why i need to use sum(total <> if(blabla....))

Thanks,
