formula in pivottable based on subtotal

Hello,

hope one of you can help me with this

I have a pivot table with

articlecode          current stock          sales/month

1341012S               `18                              43

28

41

subtotal                                            112

What i want is that current stock turns red if the average sales for 3 months (when you select 3 months) is more than current stock

so: sum(sales)/3 > stock  than RED

I have enclosed my document

Example code 1341012S

Current stock =18

avv. for month july/aug/sept = 37,3333  (=112/3)

stock should turn red, but it isn't

when you only select month june (where sales is >18) than it is working, so it seems my formula only looks at the sales and not at subtotal sales

Can someone help me??

Thanks

Hi,

I dont really understand what the fields in your example stands for, but look at the tab 'Visual Cues' in the properties for the table-object.

You can put an expression to compare two different columns against each other.

Hope it helps!

Hello,

I have changed this "=if (sum(aantgelev)/3>(voorraad),red(200),green(200))" with "=if (sum(Total aantgelev)/3>(voorraad),red(200),green(200))". In your example you need the keyword Total to consider all the Sales.

I have also added a new table with a dynamical formula so you can select 1 or n months and you will always have the correct average of Sales.

Hope it's useful.

Daniele

Hi Daniele,

one more question maybe you can help me again...

articles with stock = 0 do not turn red, why is that???

eg. code 7194000

As if QV reads 0 not as a number?

I have tried num#(voorraad), but this does not work

Can you help our??

• Re: formula in pivottable based on subtotal

Hi,

For that code(7194000) stock is null.

The value(0,000) shown to you is Null symbol you have mentioned in the Presentation tab.

So you have to use Alt function for this situation

use

Hope it helps

• Re: formula in pivottable based on subtotal

no, this doesn't  work

do I use it in the script or in the table (tried both, but maybe not corect...?)

• Re: formula in pivottable based on subtotal

Did you used this in backround expression?

• Re: formula in pivottable based on subtotal

yes, but did not work

• Re: formula in pivottable based on subtotal

I have added a file in my original post

Daniele added this with my first question

When you select code 7194000 you can see stock = null

and box should turn red, but stays green
