# How to Lookup a value from another table and multiply it to another column? Involves a "SumProduct" of sorts

Hi,

I just started using qlik sense and I have two tables very similar to the following:

QuantityPriceFX RateCurrencyProductGroup
10051.2EURProduct 1A
7541USDProduct 2A
6031USDProduct 3B
50010.95USDProduct 4C

And

ProductVolume
Product 1600
Product 2400
Product 3100
Product 42000

Essentially, I want to show the proceeds of how much of the products I can sell in one day by group. The volume table shows the total volume traded in one day. Let us assume we can sell 20% of the volume. (Basically, if 20% of the volume is less than the quantity our formula would be .20 * Volume * Price * FX Rate. If 20% of the volume is greater than the quantity, then the formula would be Quantity*Price* FX Rate.)

I'm having issues with (a) referencing the volume in the table, and (b) having the formula at the line item level and aggregate by sum in the group level.

I want my output to be a table that looks like this:

Group

Proceeds

A\$900 (\$600 from Product 1 and \$300 from Product 2)
B\$60
C\$380

Can anyone please give me some advice on how to go about doing this? Thanks so much!

When you load those two tables into Qlik, it will join them on the Product field - so you will end up with a single line containing everything you need.

your measure can then be:

SUM(IF(Quantity <= (Volume * 0.2),Quantity,Volume*0.2) * Price * [FX Rate])

with Group as your Dimension.
