Hi all,

I have created a simple Sum IF expression which includes a variable. I have created the variable within the variable overview within the document, variable works fine, however it fails to work within the expression;

Variable:    vMaxOrdMon = Max([Month Num Ord])

The variable returns the number '3' when displayed in a text box: =\$(vMaxOrdMon)

So the variable is working correctly;

I have then created an expression which uses the variable:

=Sum(If([Month Num Tar] > 0 AND [Month Num Tar] <= \$(vMaxOrdMon),[Target Value], 0))

This is however returning null? - Very frustrating, cant think for the life of me why!?!

If you replace the variable with the number '3' the expression works fine and correctly returning the correct value (1765.94).

=Sum(If([Month Num Tar] > 0 AND [Month Num Tar] <= 3,[Target Value], 0))

This is returning 1765.94; the correct resulting value;

Any idea why the variable does not work within the expression?

Any help greatly appreciated;

Joe

Hi Joe,

Make sure \$(vMaxOrdMon) return 3 not '3'. Or you can try set analysis with this expression =SUM({<[Month Num Tar]={">0<=\$(vMaxOrdMon)"}>} [Target Value])

Let me know if it not work.

The variable is definitely returning a number value of 3; One of the first things I thought of too;

I have actually now got the expression working by re-creating the variable, re-created it exactly the same, but it now works correctly!!

Just one of those QV things I guess...

Thanks again anyway,

Joe
