# how to create an if statement measure in table

I currently have a report that I create in Excel using a Pivot Table. I use a very long if statement in order to calculate the productivity percentile using 4 columns in the pivot. (The if statement calculates outside of the pivot table.) Is there a way to add a measure in a Pivot Table in Qlik Sense that will allow me to use the if statement?

I have added an example of what I'm trying to recreate in Qlik (if you "drill down" in the pivot, the "measure" changes.)

Sorry Shannon, I gave it a go but couldn't do it without summarising the States in another table

Detail:

Person,

State,

"Store",

ecg_25,

"median",

ecg_75,

ecg_90,

rp12,

Annualized

FROM [lib://AttachedFiles/Data.xlsx]

(ooxml, embedded labels, table is Sheet1);

Summary:

State,

Sum(ecg_25) as State_ecg_25,

Sum("median") as State_median,

Sum(ecg_75) as State_ecg_75,

Sum(ecg_90) as State_ecg_90,

Sum(rp12) as State_rp12

resident Detail

group by State;

This is the Measure for People

sum(

IF(rp12<=ecg_25,(((rp12-ecg_25)/(ecg_25)*0.25)+0.25),IF(rp12>ecg_25,IF(rp12<=median,((rp12-median)/(median-ecg_25)*0.25+0.5),IF(rp12>median,IF(rp12<=ecg_75,(((rp12-ecg_75)/(ecg_75-median)*0.25)+0.75),IF(rp12>ecg_75,IF(rp12<=ecg_90,(((rp12-ecg_90)/(ecg_90-ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((rp12-ecg_90)/ecg_90)+0.9))))))))

)

This is the Measure for States (2nd pivot table)

sum(

IF(State_rp12<=State_ecg_25,(((State_rp12-State_ecg_25)/(State_ecg_25)*0.25)+0.25),IF(State_rp12>State_ecg_25,IF(State_rp12<=State_median,((State_rp12-State_median)/(State_median-State_ecg_25)*0.25+0.5),IF(State_rp12>State_median,IF(State_rp12<=State_ecg_75,(((State_rp12-State_ecg_75)/(State_ecg_75-State_median)*0.25)+0.75),IF(State_rp12>State_ecg_75,IF(State_rp12<=State_ecg_90,(((State_rp12-State_ecg_90)/(State_ecg_90-State_ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((State_rp12-State_ecg_90)/State_ecg_90)+0.9))))))))

)

The only thing I did was duplicate your If and replace the cell names for the field names

I hope this helps a bit

Cheers,

Luis

Thanks for trying! This is the very first app I've ever attempted and it's definitely giving me a run for my money. I dumped in your first measure and, at first glance, it appears to have worked. But when I verify the percentiles, they're all over the map. For instance, my first calculation should be (317,290-372,161)/(372,161-273,275)*.25)+.75. It's returning a value of 60.00 (I also need help formatting the expression to return the value as 60.00%. Currently, the format is 0.00). The correct value should be 61.13, which isn't tremendously far off, but the next row should be (799,224-814739)/(814739-632687)*.25)+.50. This is returning a value of 88.35. That is really far off from the correct answer of 47.87%.

This is the measurement i have dumped in, which is just copied over from yours:

sum(IF(rp12<=ecg_25,(((rp12-ecg_25)/(ecg_25)*0.25)+0.25),IF(rp12>ecg_25,IF(rp12<=median,((rp12-median)/(median-ecg_25)*0.25+0.5),IF(rp12>median,IF(rp12<=ecg_75,(((rp12-ecg_75)/(ecg_75-median)*0.25)+0.75),IF(rp12>ecg_75,IF(rp12<=ecg_90,(((rp12-ecg_90)/(ecg_90-ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((rp12-ecg_90)/ecg_90)+0.9)))))))))

In case that doesn't make sense, here is a screenshot:

• ###### Re: how to create an if statement measure in table

After playing with it, the issue I was having below with the IF statement is the "sum()" function. If I remove the "sum" part of the IF statement, it gives me empty values until i drill completely down to the last level in the drill and then it gives me the correct value. So now I understand why you had the two pivots.

At first glance, your first pivot looked exactly like what I needed as it had the State and Person percentiles. But I thought the entire point of QLIK being drillable was that it could properly calculate as it drilled down and the values changed, so hopefully someone can further help with the IF statement to make this a true statement? It seems odd that it would stop calculating the percentiles in the upper levels of the drill considering I have the same column titles?

• ###### Re: how to create an if statement measure in table

Hi Shannon,

I just learned this thing about Dimensionality this week and I just remembered that we couldn't work out the right way to calculate at the State level. Look now:

This function Dimensionality() gives you the level at which you're working so you could make a different calculation for that level.

Let me know if you're interested in knowing how to achieve this

Cheers,

Luis

• ###### Re: how to create an if statement measure in table

That looks great! Please teach me your ways! (knowing that this is my first every Qlik visual so I may be annoyingly needy and confused. )

• ###### Re: how to create an if statement measure in table

Ok,

Basically

If Dimensionality() = 1

Then Formula aggregating by State

Else Normal formula that you already have

End If

In the normal formula you have values such as rp12; you change it to Aggr(Sum(rp12),State) for State aggregation... and so on with the rest of the values

As this is a big formula, I only did it for the first part of the if:

If(Dimensionality() = 1,

sum(

IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)<=Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),State),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)-Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),State))/(Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),State))*0.25)+0.25),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)>Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),State),IF(rp12<=median,((Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)-median)/(median-Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),State))*0.25+0.5),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)>median,IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)<=ecg_75,(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)-ecg_75)/(ecg_75-median)*0.25)+0.75),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)>ecg_75,IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)<=ecg_90,(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)-ecg_90)/(ecg_90-ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),State)-ecg_90)/ecg_90)+0.9))))))))

),

sum(

IF(rp12<=ecg_25,(((rp12-ecg_25)/(ecg_25)*0.25)+0.25),IF(rp12>ecg_25,IF(rp12<=median,((rp12-median)/(median-ecg_25)*0.25+0.5),IF(rp12>median,IF(rp12<=ecg_75,(((rp12-ecg_75)/(ecg_75-median)*0.25)+0.75),IF(rp12>ecg_75,IF(rp12<=ecg_90,(((rp12-ecg_90)/(ecg_90-ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((rp12-ecg_90)/ecg_90)+0.9))))))))

)

)

This also means that if you want to have a different calculation for an overall Total you could use test for Dimensionality() = 0

Happy to discuss,

I hope if works for you,

Cheers,

Luis

• ###### Re: how to create an if statement measure in table

Thank you so much. Sorry to be so difficult, but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I attempted to translate your expression for my actual table where I have the following drills: 1) County, 2) Service Line, 3) Specialty, 4)Practitioner. Because I don't actually have "State" I translated that to "County" with the following expression, but it's no longer giving me any Productivity Percentiles. What I did was create a Master Item with the expression below and dragged it over my existing Pivot Table. I'm not sure where the issue is?

If(Dimensionality() = 1,sum(IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)<=Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County))/(Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County))*0.25)+0.25),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)>Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County),IF(rp12<=median,((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-median)/(median-Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County))*0.25+0.5),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)>median,IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)<=ecg_75,(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-ecg_75)/(ecg_75-median)*0.25)+0.75),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)>ecg_75,IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)<=ecg_90,(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-ecg_90)/(ecg_90-ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-ecg_90)/ecg_90)+0.9))))))))), sum(IF(rp12<=ecg_25,(((rp12-ecg_25)rp12),County)-ecg_90)/(ecg_90-ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-ecg_90)/ecg_90)+0.9))))))))), sum(IF(rp12<=ecg_25,(((rp12-ecg_25)/(ecg/(ecg_25)*0.25)+0.25),IF(rp12>ecg_25,IF(rp12<=median,((rp12-median)/(median-ecg_25)*0.25+0.5),IF(rp12>median,IF(rp12<=ecg_75,(((rp12-ecg_75)/(ecg_75-median)*0.25)+0.75),IF(rp12>ecg_75,IF(rp12<=ecg_90,(((rp12-ecg_90)/(ecg_90-ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((rp12-ecg_90)/ecg_90)+0.9))))))))))

This is a view from the last level of the drill (Practitioner):

and the first level of the drill:

• ###### Re: how to create an if statement measure in table

Hi Shannon,

Remember:

1. Dimensionality represents the level of summarisation for your table with 0 being at whole total level, 1 the next level, 2 the following level and so on. When we discussed the State and Practitioner there was only two levels and no total. It's important to fix the levels. If you have more levels you need more IF conditions or a Pick function
2. The last formula you posted is incorrect. The first part of the formula when Dimensionality() = 1 is correct but not the second part, you seem to have changed the algorithm, missed functions and parentheses. you need to make sure the formula is OK is your expression editor

For the time being, please paste this formula in a table with County and Practioner

If(Dimensionality() =1,

sum(

IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)<=Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County))/(Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County))*0.25)+0.25),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)>Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)<=Aggr(Sum(median),County),((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-Aggr(Sum(median),County))/(Aggr(Sum(median),County)-Aggr(Sum(ecg_25),County))*0.25+0.5),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)>Aggr(Sum(median),County),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)<=Aggr(Sum(ecg_75),County),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-Aggr(Sum(ecg_75),County))/(Aggr(Sum(ecg_75),County)-Aggr(Sum(median),County))*0.25)+0.75),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)>Aggr(Sum(ecg_75),County),IF(Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)<=Aggr(Sum(ecg_90),County),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-Aggr(Sum(ecg_90),County))/(Aggr(Sum(ecg_90),County)-Aggr(Sum(ecg_75),County))*0.15)+0.9),(((Aggr(Sum(rp12),County)-Aggr(Sum(ecg_90),County))/Aggr(Sum(ecg_90),County))+0.9))))))))

),

sum(

IF(rp12<=ecg_25,(((rp12-ecg_25)/(ecg_25)*0.25)+0.25),IF(rp12>ecg_25,IF(rp12<=median,((rp12-median)/(median-ecg_25)*0.25+0.5),IF(rp12>median,IF(rp12<=ecg_75,(((rp12-ecg_75)/(ecg_75-median)*0.25)+0.75),IF(rp12>ecg_75,IF(rp12<=ecg_90,(((rp12-ecg_90)/(ecg_90-ecg_75)*0.15)+0.9),(((rp12-ecg_90)/ecg_90)+0.9))))))))

If you want, see if it's required for you to disguise your data and send me your qvf so I could help you better.

I hope this helps,

Thank you!! It's correct for the County level now. How do I send you the qvf? I can easily disguise the data, just not sure how to send you anything other than excel attachments and screenshots. :/ ! I see the !App icon in the bottom right, is that something I would select?

• ###### Re: how to create an if statement measure in table

Hi Shannon, good to know it's working!

QVFs are the applications files. It depends if you're using Cloud, Desktop or Enterprise. If you're using Enterprise, you may need to ask the QMC admin.

What QS are you using?

Does that work? Because I can't figure it out. I've right clicked on the app and selected "download." From there I've tried saving it, but I don't have the right program to open it and then I've tried selecting "Open with Internet Explorer" and get this link, but can't actually do anything with it.
