I'm sorry for bring Tableau into this. But, what is the WebFOCUS equivalent to the Tableau 'Level Of Detail' (LOD) expression?

I took a look at the Internet and found a pretty good explanation. To me it's kinda of on the order of COMPUTE with some kind of scope (FIXED, INCLUDE....) sort of.

Thanks Don,

Thanks makes sense... I think I did this by doing a HOLD FILE or two.

After more thought on this, it's not "[SOLVED]". Here's the deal,

1) I need to get the shipping status at a summary level, only three statuses: 'Shipped', 'Not Shipped', and 'Partial', based on the status of multiple ORDERS for multiple PROJECTS. I was using the following code, based on the 'users documentation'.
 
Shipped_Status/A11=IF SHIP_STATUS NE 'Active'                   THEN 'Shipped'
              ELSE IF SHIP_STATUS EQ 'Active' AND QTY_OPEN EQ 0 THEN 'Not Shipped'
              ELSE IF SHIP_STATUS EQ 'Active' AND QTY_OPEN NE 0 THEN 'Partial' ;
-*'QTY_OPEN EQ 0' means that there are no more items to be shipped for this ORDER.
That's NOT working...
Here's the user's Tableau code. They're referring to this as an "LOD Expression":
-* IF SHIP_STATUS="ACTIVE" THEN 
-* IF QTY_OPEN=0           THEN 1 ELSE 0 END
-*                                ELSE 1 END 

Thanks again...

Doesn't the last THEN need an ELSE?

Thanks Babak,

Oh My... I haven't forgotten an ELSE in a long time. Now that clock just got reset...

However, it didn't change the result as all the scenarios were covered.

Can SHIP_STATUS or QTY_OPEN ever be NULL?

Good question. But, Nope. I just verified that.
