Subtotals and Total Calculations in a SubHeader - TOTMAX, TOTMIN, TOT


Tracy Rue

Recommended Posts

Alright, I've got a multi-verb request and I've made most of the calculations I need in the header work. However, I cannot get the % fields to total up properly.

I calculate gross margin and the margin for Spot and Forward Trade types in the report using computes:

COMPUTE Gross_Margin/D12.2% = TRADESALESVIEW.MG_TRANSACTIONS.DEALTRANSSPREADBASE / TradingVolumeExcl121 * 100; COMPUTE FwdMargin/D12.2% = IF TRADESALESVIEW.DIM_DEAL.DEALTYPENAME EQ 'Fixed Dated Forward' OR 'Window Forward' THEN GrossMarginDefined ELSE 0; COMPUTE SpotMargin/D12.2% = IF TRADESALESVIEW.DIM_DEAL.DEALTYPENAME EQ 'Spot' THEN GrossMarginDefined ELSE 0;

Problem 1: I don't actually want the ELSE part of my statement; I want it to return nothing if it's not that trade type so that it doesn't affect my average calculation for the column. I've tried ELSE MISSING but no bueno. What's the right way to return nothing?

Problem 2: I can't get the average calculations for the 3 columns into the SubHeader. My subtotal is functioning (aside from Problem 1) but using TOT. or TOTMAX. with any of the computed % fields does not return the right values. As I said, I've got a multi-verb request so I should be able to pull the report total for the 3 columns, but I think I need to solve problem 1 before I can even get the right value in the header... Here's the whole thang in order to make sense of it:

Hoping this is actually quite simple as I'm not an advanced developer. The documentation on headers is pretty light but if you can point me to some I'm happy to dive in. Thanks in advance!

For your first question, I think you need to specify MISSING ON to allow the COMPUTE or DEFINE to have missing valus. For example,

DEFINE FILE ggsales VAL1/I11 MISSING ON = IF CITY EQ 'Boston' OR 'New York' THEN 1 ELSE MISSING; END TABLE FILE ggsales PRINT CITY VAL1 COMPUTE VAL2/I11 MISSING ON = IF CITY NE 'Boston' OR 'New York' THEN 1 ELSE MISSING; WHERE SEQ_NO LE 10 END

The output looks like the following, with the periods indicating missing values.image.png.9fe9db993c54d4587ae9e5e8868d21fc.png

I do agree with David regarding how to use MISSING

As for your second question, a technic that could be used is to use your TFINAL file as a source to calculate your header's total and hold them in another file. Then read that file to have your totals in variable and finally assign those variables in your header.

Here a sample of what I am speaking

TABLE FILE CARSUM COMPUTE INCTOT/P5.2 = (RETAIL_COST - DEALER_COST) / DEALER_COST * 100;ON TABLE HOLD AS TOTINCEND-RUN -READFILE TOTINC-RUN-DEFAULTH &AVGTOT = 0-TYPE &INCTOT TABLE FILE CARSUM RETAIL_COST AS 'Retail,Cost' DEALER_COST AS 'Dealer,Cost' COMPUTE INC/P5.2 = (RETAIL_COST - DEALER_COST) / DEALER_COST * 100; AS 'Increase %'BY COUNTRY AS 'Country'HEADING"Total Increase &INCTOT %"ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM NOLEADEND-RUN

 I only have one field (variable) in my sample, but you can have as many as you need

I got it. Thank you to David for the quick and easy solution to Part 1! Using the MISSING ON ensured all averages calculated properly and allowed me to use AVE. in Part 2.

Part 2 I solved with two steps:

a) Removing the Total_Gross_Margin, Total_Fwd_Margin, and Total_Spot_Margin fields from the DEAL LEVEL SUMS section (lines 36-38 in my original code).

b) I removed the TOTAVE. prefix in the SUBHEAD (lines 140 & 141 in my original code) - which ensured the value in the header was just referring to the Total_xxx_Margin fields in the CUSTOMER LEVEL section. Also, in the CUSTOMER section I changed the field to be Computed with an AVE. prefix:

COMPUTE Total_Gross_Margin/D12.2% = AVE.GrossMarginDefined; COMPUTE Total_Fwd_Margin/D12.2% = AVE.FwdMarginDefined; COMPUTE Total_Spot_Margin/D12.2% = AVE.SpotMarginDefined;

So originally I had the Total_xxx_Margin fields in both sections of the multi-verb request because I believed I needed them to be populated in both sections of the multi-verb request in order for them to successfully report in my final report. However it is clear to me now that only the BY phrases are necessary for the continuity in the multi-verb scenario.

Martin, I did have a similar solution to your suggestion when I first started working on this request however it was simplified to the multi-verb and I really wanted to try and solve it without adding another layer. It is still a very viable solution I may use in the future, so thank you for that, as well.
