calculated measures

Hi everyone

Hoping that there is an easy workaround to the below

I am calculating GM at a SKU level, however would like to be able to present the data at a product category and/or customer channel level

However when I drag in my calculated field of GM per SKU it recalculates GM at a average product category level and uses that new calc to determine GM achieved, rather than summing the GM per product catergory.

I basically want the GM to calculate at a SKU level but be able to present the data at an aggregate level,

In excel the formulas would look like this:

GM per SKU = ytd sales/ ytd sales quantity

GM achieved for day per SKU = GM per SKU*qty delivered for the day

GM achieved per category = sum(GM achieved for all SKUs in category)

It looks like BO recalculates GM per SKU depending on what product field I drag in ie if my table to calculate GM had product catergory rather than SKU I am getting GM per category, which then impacts my final calculation

I basically want the calcs to keep running at a SKU level but be able to present totals at an aggregate level, rather than aggregating data then calculating GM

Hope this makes sense. Can attched screenshots if required.

    Hi Nadia,

    You can use calculation context to reset your aggregation.

    use =sum([GM] foreach([SKU]))

    Hi,

    What you describe sounds very similar to the user guide's definition of the calculation contexts. Read the chapter "Understanding calculation contexts" and make sure that you get to know the input and output calculation contexts:
