Beast Mode Syntax error

Hi, I would greatly appreciate some help with this beastmode. 

 

The idea is to calculate what % of the remaining sales quota for the quarter each open deal per salesperson is. I want to divide the Open deal value by (Quota - Value of all Won deals) 

 

100000--this is the quota, manual input

 

case when `Status` = 'Open' then (`Value` / (100000 - SUM(case when `Status` = 'Won' then `Value` else 0))) else 0 end

 

Thanks in advance!

    Try this

     

    sum(case when `Status` = 'Open' then `Value` Else 0 end)

    /

    (100000 - SUM(case when `Status` = 'Won' then `Value` else 0 end))

  • And to be careful, though unlikely to happen, you can protect against "divide by zero" errors:

     

    CASE 
    -- If denominator is zero, result is zero
    WHEN (100000 - SUM(CASE WHEN `Status` = 'Won' THEN `Value` ELSE 0 END)) = 0 THEN 0

    -- else, do the real calculation
    ELSE
    SUM(CASE WHEN `Status` = 'Open' THEN `Value`) ELSE 0 END)
    /
    (100000 - SUM(CASE WHEN `Status` = 'Won' THEN `Value` ELSE 0 END))
    END
