Filtering: Dynamic record counts on filtered data?
  •     dpawley August 29, 2014 7:34AM

    I have a large dataset of 400k records over 12 months, by supplier, by product, by outlets. What I would like to get to is "Product A is in 50% of the outlets, over 12 months. However in August it was in 80%" from the dataset.

    I can separate out the data in a chart that ranks the products by volume top to bottom over the past 12 months. I have used Unique_Count to get the number of outlets that are stocking Product A which is great but I want to divide this number by the total number of outlets in the dataset and have it change if I was to select one month, or 2 months (i.e. filter).

    In a 'real dataset' you probably wouldn't have empty rows, where Product A/Month X sales are empty. In that case your formula would look like this:
    SUBSET_UNIQUECOUNT([Outlet], SUBSET2([Product],[Month]))

    In the attached demo case, presence of Product A in Outlet X has to be established by evaluating the sales Volume, so additional criteria is added:
    SUBSET_UNIQUECOUNT([Outlet], SUBSET3([Product],[Month],[Volume],[Product],[Month],0,"=","=",">"))

    If you want dynamic results, you can define a variable "Month Choice", and place it inside the formula as a user-selected value:
    SUBSET_UNIQUECOUNT([Outlet], SUBSET2([Product],[Month],[Product],{Month Choice}))

    Hi Paola

    I have had a look at all the above and I can't seem to make any of them work at all. I keep getting error messages. I would like to show you my live example if that id possible as see if it makes a bit more sense as it has confidential sales data in it.

    Can I email this over and then update the forum once we have had chance to investigate?

    Yes please, do email us the actual dataset you wish to use for this analysis and we will advise how to apply the formulas. (please email us directly @ support)
