New Formula in the query designer

Hello Gurus,

How do i define a formula taking characteristic and key figure values. I tried to do a selection of both but the problem is its just taking the key figure value and not the characteristic. I am new to this so please if someone could explain it would be a great help. Example have 'Production' as the key figure value, 'Part run count' as the characteristic value. I want to define a formula for 'Part run per metric ton' which is part run count/production/1000. I defined Part run count as a selection including production and part run count but when i defined the formula, the result just takes the production values and not the part run count. Hope my explanation is clear.

Thanks in advance,

Anjali

    Hi Anjali,

    If I understand correctly you should try a formula variable. Using that you can use a char value in a formula.

    Let me know if you need more info,

      Hello Dirk,

      Its not about the visibility in the query about the 'Selection' but when i am trying to define a formula using a selection (which has both key figure and characteristic) and a key figure, the formula takes only the key figure in the selection but doesn't involve the characteristic. So i would like to know how to define a formula using a selection which involved both key figure and characteristic.

      Thanks,

      Anjali
