[CLOSED] Compute field calculation

Hi,I need to generate a simple report where I'm using a compute field for calculation of different row values. Here is how the dataset looks like

STORE METRIC COL1 COL2 COL3 1234 CLAIMS 10 20 30 1234 NGCNT 10 20 40 1234 SALES 10 20 30 1234 SALES PER CLAIM 10 20 30 1357 CLAIMS 10 20 30 1357 NGCNT 10 20 40 1357 SALES 10 20 30 1357 SALES PER CLAIM 10 20 30

I'm creating a 6th column which is a computed column(TOTAL) that will bring sum of COL1 COL2 COL3 for each row.

Problem is the above logic should occur for CLAIMS,NGCNT,SALES which is sum (COL1 COL2 COL3). That said, for SALES PER CLAIM row the logic is different, formula for this is

(sales/ claims). I should get the report like below.

STORE METRIC COL1 COL2 COL3 TOTAL 1234 CLAIMS 10 20 30 60 1234 NGCNT 10 20 40 70 1234 SALES 10 20 30 60 1234 SALES PER CLAIM 10 20 30 1 1357 CLAIMS 10 20 30 60 1357 NGCNT 10 20 40 70 1357 SALES 10 10 10 30 1357 SALES PER CLAIM 10 20 30 2

If you see in the above output the "SALES PER CLAIM" row value for the column "TOTAL" has value which is came out from the formula (sales/Claims).

How can we achieve the sum of the row values for each metric and at the same time specifically for "SALES PER CLAIM" row a different value based on the formula(sales/Claims) in a single computed column

Thanks!

TABLE FILE xxxx PRINT COL1 COL2 COL3 COMPUTE TOTCL/I6 = IF METRIC EQ 'CLAIMS' THEN COL1+COL2+COL3 ELSE TOTCL; NOPRINT COMPUTE TOTSL/I6 = IF METRIC EQ 'SALES' THEN COL1+COL2+COL3 ELSE TOTSL; NOPRINT COMPUTE COL4/I6 = IF METRIC EQ 'SALES PER CLAIM' THEN TOTCL/TOTSL ELSE COL1+COL2+COL3; BY STORE BY METRIC END

This might be what you're looking for ...

COMPUTE TOTCL/I6 = IF METRIC EQ 'CLAIMS' THEN COL1+COL2+COL3 ELSE

COMPUTE TOTSL/I6 = IF METRIC EQ 'SALES' THEN COL1+COL2+COL3 ELSE

COMPUTE COL4/I6 = IF METRIC EQ 'SALES PER CLAIM' THEN TOTCL/TOTSL ELSE COL1+COL2+COL3;
