# How to Pass Condition values into ValueList()

Hi All,

How to achieve the below expression in a right way.

Expression:

Valuelist('Apple','Bannana','Carrot',if(wildmatch([fruits],'*G*'),[fruits]))

Thanks,

where are you using this and what is the exact requirement of the below expression? there may be a easy way out.

if you are using it in the dimension try this

in the script

load * inline [

dim

1

2

3

4

];

in the dimension

pick(dim,'Apple','Bannana','Carrot',if(wildmatch([fruits],'*G*'),[fruits]))

With the expression, i was able to achieve the below result set.

Table:

 Product Sales Amount Actual Amount Risk Value Return Value A 60 5 20 15 B 50 100 25 25 C 70 70 55 35 D 20 35 15 30 E 10 25 17 15 F 5 30 20 5

Dimension:

=ValueList('AUM','Flow')

Measure:

if(ValueList('AUM','Flow') =

'AUM', Avg({<Product={"=rank(sum([Sales Amount]),Product)<=3"}>}[Risk Value]),

if(ValueList('AUM','Flow') =

'Flow',Avg({<Product={"=rank(sum([Actual Amount]),Product)<=3"}>}[Risk Value])

))

Result:

 Dimension Risk Vlaue Average TOP 3 Products by Sales Amount 33.33 Average TOP 3 Products by Actual Amount 31.66

Here is it trick:

Now I want to show my own product in the result table.

Example:

 Dimension Risk Vlaue Average TOP 3 Products by Sales Amount 33.33 Average TOP 3 Products by Actual Amount 31.66 E 17

Is this what you are looking for?

• ###### Re: How to Pass Condition values into ValueList()

script change

load * inline [

dim

1

2

3

];

dimension

=pick(dim,'Average TOP 3 Products by Sales Amount','Average TOP 3 Products by Actual Amount',if(wildmatch(Product,'*E*'),Product))

expression

PICK(dim, Avg({<Product={"=rank(sum([Sales Amount]),Product)<=3"}>}[Risk Value]),Avg({<Product={"=rank(sum([Actual Amount]),Product)<=3"}>}[Risk Value]),SUM([Risk Value])
)

Your logic is much better than mine in both performances and the expression building.Mine has some performance issues.

Hi,

ValueList() only accepts discrete values, so you cannot use If inside Valuelist(). Try fixing this on data model level by creating a separate table linked to your data which will contain those "fruits" you need and will connect to respective values in your data model.

Hope this helps.

Hi All,

I have found the solution. Thanks to everyone and special thanks to Juraj for giving me this idea.

Step1: Created Inline Table with column names DimID, DIM values

Step2: Created Resident with only the products which I was interested in.

for example:

[Performance Statistics]:

load if(WildMatch("Furits",'*E*'),"Product ID") as Dim,if(WildMatch("Fruits",'*E*'),"Product Name") as DimValue Resident [Fruits_Table];

Step3: Concatenated Resident with Inline table.

Now that I have my table ready. I used the following expression to achieve my requirement.

Dimensions:

=if([Product ID]=Dim,DimValue,

if(Dim=1,DimValue,

if(Dim=2,DimValue,

if(Dim=3,DimValue

))))

Measures:

if(Dim=1 , Avg({<[Product ID]={"=rank(sum([Sales Amount]),[Product ID])<=10"}>}[Risk Value]),

if(Dim=2 , Avg({<[Product ID]={"=rank(sum([Actual Amount]),[Product ID])<=10"}>}[Risk Value]),

if(Dim=3 , Avg({<[Product ID]={"=rank(-sum([Actual Amount]),[Product ID])<=10"}>}[Risk Value]),

([Risk Value])

)

))

Result:

 Dimension Risk Value Average TOP 3 Products by Sales Amount 33.33 Average TOP 3 Products by Actual Amount 31.66 E 17

Your way is one way of achieving it my friend. But if you use pick() with no nested if it will be optimized and faster as well.

Good that you found a solution.
