I'm using SAS VA 7.3.
I have to show ratio of fields in a table.
For this I have created a new calculated measure with following formula:
Calc_Field = Measure1 / (Measure1 + Measure2 + Measure3)
It works fine if I add all categories on the report table.
But if I remove any category, VA sums the values of Calc_Field instead of recalculate the formula.
I think in backend SAS groups by all category variables and based on this it sums up all measure variables.
So basically it is doing sum(Measure1), sum(Measure2), sum(Measure3), sum(Calc_Field).
But I want value of Calc_Field to be calculated based on defined formula once other fields are grouped.
I tried both List table and CrossTab. I also tried different aggregation property of this calculated field but no luck.
Any help or suggestion will be much appreciated.
Thanks a lot @TejaSurapaneni it worked and I'm getting the expected result.
Just one minor problem.
If one of my measure is missing then aggregated formula is also returning a missing value.
In base SAS we can use Sum(var1,var2) function to avoid this problem.
But in VA it is giving me syntax error.
What should I modify in this formula to add numbers with missing value?
Sum [_ByGroup_] ('M1'n) / ( Sum [_ByGroup_] ('M2'n) + Sum [_ByGroup_] ('M3'n) )
