# Distinct Sum?

I know there is distinct count

but is there distinct sum?

### 3 answers

Hi David,

Thank you for your question.

Could you please provide us with the definition of distinct sum aggregation and the difference between sum aggregation and distinct sum aggregation?

Kind regards,

Iryna

let say

Item | Tracking # | $ Value

—————|————-

Item1| A10000 | $4

Item2|A10000 | $4

Item3|A10000 | $4

Item4|A10001 | $7

Item5|A10000 | $4

Item6|A10001 | $7

When you sum of value by tracking# is: $4 + $4 + $4 + $7 + $4 + $7 = $30

distinct sum of value by tracking # is: $4 + $7 = $11

Similar ways as count vs distinct count

Sql example will be like

**Distinct Sum**

SELECT SUM(SQ.COST)
FROM
(SELECT DISTINCT [Tracking #] as TRACK,[Value] as COST FROM YourTable) SQ

**Sum**

SELECT SUM([Value]) FROM YourTable

David,

Thank you for providing the explanations.

Unfortunately, there is no distinct sum aggregation in the component.

I can suggest you the following workaround for the case when you want to display Cost in the pivot table report – you can use average aggregation and hide grand totals, as it is done in the following sample based on the data you provided above: https://jsfiddle.net/irynakulchytska/w2pagee7/

var report = {

configuratorActive: false,

data: jsondata,

viewType: "grid",

showGrandTotals: false,

rows: [{uniqueName: "Tracking #"}],

columns: [{uniqueName: "[Measures]"}],

measures: [{uniqueName: "Value",aggregation: "average"}]

};

Will this work for you?

Kind regards,

Iryna
