# Empty fields in table

Hello,

I have a table called "Inventory cost" (pic 1)

Another table called "remained in stock" (pic 2)

So, I have to make final table

, where:

quantity in the begining calculated like

RangeSum(

Sum({\$< InOrOut = {0}, DateMovement = {'<=\$(vMinSelectedDate)'}, Date >} Quantity),

Sum({\$< InOrOut = {1}, DateMovement = {'<=\$(vMinSelectedDate)'}, Date >} Quantity*(-1))

)

Fields Quantity in, out and in the end calculated similarly.

Field "avg cost":

avg( aggr(sum(DISTINCT(cost +quantity)),Date, Item, DateItemCame))

The problem is that some fields in column avg cost is missed. Everything else calculated excellent.

I'm new in qlikview. And sorry for my english)

Hi,

how the two tables are joined?

I see both item and quantity in the two tables.

I suppose you are working with the data of the secont table and using field from the first is not working fine.

• ###### Re: Empty fields in table

Two tables connected by the field - Item.

Quantity columns are differs. I'm sorry for not clear question.

You are right, I use 2nd table and use fields from 1st to calculate the average cost

• ###### Re: Empty fields in table

Hi

I think your expression for average cost should look something like:

avg(aggr(sum(Quantity / Cost), Item, DateItemCame))

I've tried to use it. But the result was the same.

I think the problem is with Date.

For example, if I not using Date in columns "Quantity on the beginning" and etc the Average column shows everything perfect. But not using Date, the quantity calculates incorrectly.

• ###### Re: Empty fields in table

How would you like the movement date to relate to the cost date?

• ###### Re: Empty fields in table

Actually they are not related. I don't want to relate them. Two tables joined only by "Item". What I want is to take 2nd table as base and take some columns from 1st to calculate the average cost

• ###### Re: Empty fields in table

Well, if the quantity, cost and item all come the first table, and the item field has the same name as in the second table, and if it is only key between the two tables, then I see no reason that expression does not work. You might need to post a more detailed example, with the correct field names, so that I can better understand your data structure.

Ok!

So,

table1 - "Inventory cost":

fields - Item, DateCome, QuantityCame, CostCame, Spending1, Spending2

table 2 - "Items movement":

fields - Item, DateMovement, InOrOut, QuantityMoved, Stock

Final table (what I want to see):

Stock, Item, AvgCost, QuantityForTheBeginning, QuantityIn, QuantityOut, QuantityInTheEnd.

Also, where the problem can sit in my opinion, the script

CalendarInventoryCameTemp:

Date

Resident Calendar;

Left Join (CalendarInventoryCameTemp)

Date as DateCome

Resident Calendar;

CalendarInventoryCame:

Date

,DateCame

Resident CalendarInventoryCameTemp;

DROP Table CalendarInventoryCameTemp;

The same script for DateMovement.

I made a mistake in posting, of course I use spending instead of quantity)..

So I calculate avg cost like:

=avg( aggr(sum(DISTINCT(cost +spending)),Date, Item, DateItemCame)).. Works fine, but misses some Items. Why???.. I don't understand(

I dont understand what you are trying to calculate with that expression. Using distinct will only consider one cost+spending amount, even if there are several for different items. Perhaps you mean

avg(aggr(DISTINCT Sum(...

Also, if either cost or spending is null or is missing, then cost+spending will evaluate to null. So use RangeSum(cost , spending) in place of cost+spending.

I hope that helps

I tried to do as you said, Jonathan, thank you.

But the result is the same. Some items is shown, and some is not. And I don't see the logic there. Because they all have the data in fields.

My intuition tells me Date making some problems there.
