Lech Miszkiewicz Dec 8, 2017 6:59 PM (in response to Paul Ripley)If you are referning to NPrinting formulas then there is no "shorter" way as each formula is independent.
You may levarage Qlik variables and do calculation there. That would simplify the process.
on the other note:
this is not long formula  i have formulas which span accross 250 lines, so what you are doing is completly OK

Re: NPrinting  adding formulae in Powerpoint
Lech Miszkiewicz Dec 8, 2017 7:21 PM (in response to Lech Miszkiewicz )Another comment regarding (123) for negative values
You don't need to use IF statement, instead use num () function with format '#,##0.0; (#,##0.0)', where first format will automaticly be applied if result is greater than 0 and second format for values < 0
as an option you can put value for result = 0
like:
num( Sum(Sales), '#,##0.0; (#,##0.0), no sales'),
I also would avoid using floor on each level and would try to stick to num() function first.
That should make it much simpler, right?
I think you should just have (I am not sure why you did..... +500000,1000000)/1000000??  I gues you will figure this out). Given that you don't need IF statement and you will only use num() your formulas will be simpler
num (
sum({$<period = {$(vEndPeriod_CY)}, pl = {A01}>} IS_Investment_GBP)
+
sum({$<period = {$(vEndPeriod_CY)}, pl = {B01,J05}>} IS_Investment_GBP) ,
'#,##0.0; (#,##0.0)'
)
or (if you need to devide by: say' 1000000
num (
sum({$<period = {$(vEndPeriod_CY)}, pl = {A01}>} IS_Investment_GBP) /1000000
+
sum({$<period = {$(vEndPeriod_CY)}, pl = {B01,J05}>} IS_Investment_GBP) /1000000,
'#,##0.0; (#,##0.0)'
)

Paul Ripley Dec 11, 2017 12:15 PM (in response to Lech Miszkiewicz )Hi Lech
Thanks for taking the time to reply. Unfortunatley the num function did not work for me (I got a result of 0.0 rather than 41 which I was expecting)
But at least I know there is no easier way to do this!
Many thanks
Paul

Lech Miszkiewicz Dec 11, 2017 3:30 PM (in response to Paul Ripley)Hi Paul,
This function has to work  It is the most common solution to such scenrio like yours.
I suggest you play with it little bit, maybe you have made "typo" in syntax or had something missing.
i guess it is worth reviewing.
cheers
Lech
