divide by 0

Hi,

I have my pivot table with many expressions. Some of them is calcuated by 0 because for formula. When I have 2 expression calculated for separated don´t give error and the expression shows the 'minus.png' because obviously (number/0). But when did it the same thing with another calculation the result gives nothing, just a blanks. I left an example:

Thanks!!

• divide by 0

I´m Sorry I forgot the values:

328/0.95 = 345,3

0/0 = Blanks

I did this:

IF(count({<AT1}>}(if (InYear (Fecha, Today(), 0), AT1)))/Sum( {\$<YEAR = {\$(#=Max(YEAR))}>} ATX) = ' ', 'qmem://<bundled>/BuiltIn/minus.png',

IF(count({<AT1}>}(if (InYear (Fecha, Today(), 0), AT1)))/Sum( {\$<YEAR = {\$(#=Max(YEAR))}>} ATX) > 0,

(count({<AT1}>}(if (InYear (Fecha, Today(), 0), AT1)))/Sum( {\$<YEAR = {\$(#=Max(YEAR))}>} ATX))))

Thanks.

Hi,

well, I am not sure if i got your point:

Sum( {\$<YEAR = {\$(#=Max(YEAR))}>} ATX)

results in 0?

and

count({<AT1}>}(if (InYear (Fecha, Today(), 0), AT1)))/Sum( {\$<YEAR = {\$(#=Max(YEAR))}>} ATX)

gives you a blank?

Well, I am not sure that comparing the above expression to a blank (one or more?) will work. It is better to check the first expression on zero.

I also didn't get your point with

328/0.95 = 345,3

except that there is a mixup of decimal point format (it this just a type?).

Hi, Swuehl thanks for answering, I just to showed you one line. There are many lines in my table with many results distinct that 0. Now the reason bacause gave 0 is due there is no data into the database for that month specificaly. So I have an expression that gave maior that 0 but I have another expression that in sometimes gave 0.

count({<AT1}>}(if (InYear (Fecha, Today(), 0), AT1)))/Sum( {\$<YEAR = {\$(#=Max(YEAR))}>} ATX)

is because no data into the database

Sum( {\$<YEAR = {\$(#=Max(YEAR))}>} ATX) = 0.

but I did this:

=count({<AT1}>}(if (InYear (Fecha, Today(), -1), AT1)))/if(Sum( {\$<YEAR = {\$(#=Min(YEAR))}>} ATX) = 0, '0,01',

so all the formulas is divide by 0,01 and no with 0. I don´t know what more to do. now the indicators changed to green.

Thanks Again.

• divide by 0

So, do you still have a problem or are you satisfied with this solution?

Depending on your business problem, it might be good to check for zero sum first and then calculate the division (if not zero), or use a fixed number like 100% or special expression that is confirm with the requirements of your business logic (or just state like 'n.a.' non available).

Have a nice evening,

For now is better that formula that I put. the message that qlikview live is too long. The manager people don´t like the massage of QlikView for default.
