# Accumulate for the numerator, but regular for denominator

How can I take the accumulation of one number and divide it by another number that is not accumulated?

Month     Sold     Inventory

Jan          5          10

Feb          4          20

Mar          6          15

April          3          15

So i wand to take the the Acculmated Inventory of of 60and divide it by the the April sold of 3 to get 20

Hi, you can add an expression with the formula: Rangesum(Above(Inventory, 0, RowNo())) and then a fourth expression with the formula: Column(3)/Sold.

Hi Sander/James,

Can i get the complete script for this sample. How do you create a tablebox with the addditional columns for Calculations achieved. Please post the script used for acheiving it(I have only personal edition).

Hi, create a straight table (not tablebox) with Month as dim and the others as expressions. Script is nothing more than an inline table.

Test:

Month, Sold, Inventory

Jan, 5, 10

Feb, 4, 20

Mar, 6, 15

Apr, 3, 15

Thanks Sanders,

One last question, how to remove the first row in the result which is not much useful. Attached the image.

Thanks,

Sri

Hi, on the expressions tab switch the total mode to no totals for each expression. Regards.
