    Calculate specific rows in dimension from load script?

    Stefan Setterberg

      Hi all,


      I have a excel file with the following structure (see attached) that I use as a datasource. By sorting the rows this way I get the right calculations and structure in my pivot table. My problem is that in some rows I want to make calculations using the the values from other rows. Is there a way I can accomplish that either in the excel sheet or in the load script?

          The calculations can be done either in the load script or very similarly in the charts instead. I have made an example app that does both.


              If( IsNull(Account) , ' ' , Text(Account)) AS Account,
              If( IsNull([Cost center]),' ' , Text([Cost center])) AS [Cost center],
              Trim([Calculation wanted]) AS C
          FROM [lib://Downloads/Example financial report.xlsx]
            (ooxml, embedded labels, table is [Financial report])
          // Give each row a name which is the same as the headline 
          FOR i=1 TO NoOfRows('XL')
            var = Peek('Headline',i-1);
              [$(var)] = i-1
              [Cost center],
              If( RecNo() = 1 , 1 , If( Left( C , 1 ) = '=' , Peek('C#')+1 , Peek('C#') ) )  AS C#,
              If( Left(C,1) <> '=' , C , Pick( Peek('C#') , 
            RangeSum(Peek('C',$(Sales)),Peek('C',$(Net Shipping Revenue)),Peek('C',$(Other Sales)))
                  ,RangeSum(Peek('C',$(COGS)),Peek('C',$(Other COGS)))
                  ,RangeSum(Peek('C',$(Net Revenue)),Peek('C',$(Total Cogs)))/Peek('C',$(Net Revenue))
                  ,Peek('C',$(Total Cogs))/Peek('C',$(Sales))
                  ,Peek('C',$(Net Revenue))+Peek('C',$(Total Cogs))
                  ,Peek('C',$(CM1))/Peek('C',$(Net Revenue))
                  ,RangeSum(Peek('C',$(Delivery Costs)),Peek('C',$(Payment Cost)),Peek('C',$(Pick&Pack Personnel Costs)),Peek('C',$(Ops Personnel Costs)),Peek('C',$(Customer Care Personnel Costs)),Peek('C',$(Memnon)),Peek('C',$(Material)))
            ,RangeSum(Peek('C',$(CM1)),Peek('C',$(CM2 Cost)))
                  ,Peek('C',$(CM2 Total))/Peek('C',$(Net Revenue))
              AS C
          DROP TABLE XL;


          The calculations in the chart would be as an alternative:


          If( Len([Cost center]) > 1 , Sum(C) , Pick( Above(TOTAL C#)  
            ,RangeSum(Top(TOTAL Sum(C),$(Sales)+1),Top(TOTAL Sum(C),$(Net Shipping Revenue)+1),Top(TOTAL Sum(C),$(Other Sales)+1))
            ,RangeSum(Top(TOTAL C,$(COGS)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(Other COGS)+1))
                  ,RangeSum(Top(TOTAL C,$(Net Revenue)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(Total Cogs)+1))/Top(TOTAL C,$(Net Revenue)+1)
                  ,Top(TOTAL C,$(Total Cogs)+1)/Top(TOTAL C,$(Sales)+1)
                  ,Top(TOTAL C,$(Net Revenue)+1)+Top(TOTAL C,$(Total Cogs)+1)
                  ,Top(TOTAL C,$(CM1)+1)/Top(TOTAL C,$(Net Revenue)+1)
                  ,RangeSum(Top(TOTAL C,$(Delivery Costs)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(Payment Cost)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(Pick&Pack Personnel Costs)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(Ops Personnel Costs)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(Customer Care Personnel Costs)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(Memnon)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(Material)+1))
            ,RangeSum(Top(TOTAL C,$(CM1)+1),Top(TOTAL C,$(CM2 Cost)+1))
                  ,Top(TOTAL C,$(CM2 Total)+1)/Top(TOTAL C,$(Net Revenue)+1)


          If you prefer to do calculations in the chart you could remove lines 18 to 39 in the load script.
