        Thanks, I changed the Percentage of to None and get the same result as before.

          Try duplicate as crosstab . Select Show Row totals from the Analysis/Total menu. This will show you how it is calculating the %s.

          Then  remove the % values on your CNTD(CUSTID) field and see what the actual values are.


          If possible post screenshots of both wth and without %

            Before % values removed:



            After % values removed - Grand Totals don't seem right.  For example, all 22 customers in Winston Salem had a value of  "3/4" value for AGG(MET_GOALS) for December (there weren't any customers that did not have a value of "3/4" for December.  Not sure why it shows 28 for Grand Total. 022613_6.png

              Couple of ques

              1. Is total distinct CUST_IDs  in Winston Salem -  22 ?

              2. does FUNCTION_TEXT filter you view for values MET_GOAL 3 and 4?



              If both are true, try creating this view from scratch. That should clear out the unwanted background work that tableau is doing..

                1.  22 is the distinct count of CUST_IDs in Winston Salem that have a MET_GOAL value for December (see chart below).




                28 is the distinct count when I remove MY(PERIOD_REPORT) from the Columns shelf and move it to the filter and select all months in the filter.



                2. FUNCTION_TEXT filters for a specific function (i.e. "Telephone") - not for MET_GOAL value.  Using this filter shows all CUST_IDs with the FUNCTION_TEXT = "Telephone".

                  In that case you need to have MET_GOAL in your filter and select just 3/4.

                  So the way it is calculating is 

                  (Distinct CUST ID in Dec) / (Distinct CUST ID for all period).

                  Is this not how you want it?

                    No, I want it to show by month, how many distinct CUST_IDs are 3/4 of the total CUST_IDs for that month.  So 22 out of 22 total for December should show 100%.

                      Heres another approach:



                      Create another Calculated field CUST_PERSON_ID(3/4) with the formula

                      IF MET_GOAL = "3/4" THEN [CUST_PERSON_ID] ELSE NULL END


                      2. Create another field for your percentage calculation:

                      COUNTD(CUST_PERSON_ID(3/4)) / COUNTD(CUST_PERSON_ID)


                      Use the field created in step 2 in your rows shelf.

                      This should get you where you need to be

                        I tried to create a calculated field as follows, but I get an error "cannot mix aggregate and non-aggregate comparisons or results in 'IF' expressions". 


                        IF MET_GOAL = "3/4" THEN [CUST_PERSON_ID] ELSE NULL END


                        So I did this instead, however this gives me the total count of all customers intead of just the count of customers that have "3/4".


                        IF [MET_GOAL] = '3/4' THEN COUNTD([CUST_PERSON_ID])

                        ELSE Null

                          whats the calculation behind MET_GOAL?

                            CASE [GOAL]

                            WHEN 1 THEN '1/2'

                            WHEN 2 THEN '1/2'

                            WHEN 3 THEN '3/4'

                            WHEN 4 THEN '3/4'

                            ELSE Null

                              Use GOAL in your IF function for <CUST_PERSON_ID(3/4)>

                              IF GOAL = "3" THEN [CUST_PERSON_ID]

                              ELSEIF GOAL = "4" THEN [CUST_PERSON_ID]

                              ELSE NULL END

                              This should take care of the Mixing Agg wth Non-Agg error.


                              then for your %

                              COUNTD(CUST_PERSON_ID(3/4)) / COUNTD(CUST_PERSON_ID)

                                I still get the agg with non-agg error using the revision you suggested.  Not sure if it's because GOAL is a calculated field?



                                IF isnull([T/F_metric1]) THEN 0 ELSE IIF([T/F_metric1]=TRUE,1,0)


                                +IF isnull([T/F_metric2]) THEN 0 ELSE IIF([T/F_metric2]=TRUE,1,0)


                                +IF isnull([Table2].[T/F_metric3]) THEN 0 ELSE IIF([Table2].[T/F_metric3]=TRUE,1,0)


                                +IF isnull([Table2].[T/F_metric4]) THEN 0 ELSE IIF([Table2].[T/F_metric4]=TRUE,1,0)

                                  Yup. its because GOAL is calculated


                                  Can you try this for 




                                  IIF([T/F_metric1]=TRUE,1,0) +

                                  IIF([T/F_metric2]=TRUE,1,0) +

                                  IIF([Table2].[T/F_metric3]=TRUE,1,0) +

                                  IIF([Table2].[T/F_metric4]=TRUE,1,0)      >=3

                                  THEN [CUST_PERSON_ID]

                                  else NULL END

                                    I tried that, and same error - Agg with non-agg.


                                    The T/F fields are calculations as well:





                                    The GOAL_metric1 field is also a calculated field.
