Webi - totaling a table with Input Controls


I have 2 crosstabs in Webi.

Table 1 has char Department in rows, and a bunch of measures in columns. Table 1 also has an input control on Department.

Table 2 I have defaulted the row text to 'Other' with no characteristic.

Table 3 is grand total of the Department.

Table 1 has 50 results - I only want to display the ones I choose in the input control. Lets say I want to choose 40 of them.

I now want what the remaining values are in Table 2 for the other 10 departments.

So ideally I want in Table 2 : [Table 3].[Measure] - [Table 1].[Measure] which will give me the total of 'Other'

The problem I have is that the Input Control will not filter the grand total of Table 1 - it just filters the display? Is there a function that will only total the visible rows?

What I need to avoid is using another input control for Table 2 (Other)

Hope that makes sense!!

Appreciate any time given

    It is possible to have a footer row in 1st table instead of having a 2nd table for others ? In the footer you can hardcode the Department as "Others" and for measure, use the formula:

    =NoFilter(Sum([Measure Object]))-Sum([Measure Object])

    NoFilter function will ignore the filter by input control.

    Another solution is :

    Change the scope of the input control and apply to both 1st and 2nd table.

    In 2nd Table, in place of Department, hardcode as ="Others" and in place of measures, use the formula:

    =NoFilter(Sum([Measure Object]))-Sum([Measure Object])

    3rd table should be out of the scope of input control.
