RE: st: panel - rowtotal |

Hi Mitch, Yes I have unique code for each unit. I think the code you wrote is not exactly what I need. I thought rather than column, I need to do it by row because although the units are listed in the 2nd column (in panel format), what I am trying to do is just to sum the sales of particular units at each date. So, first, somewhere in the code, I need to define the unit codes that should be summed up (I will type these one by one from my list). And secondly, the code should do it for each date. For example, I want to sum the sales of units A, B and C which seem at row10, 30 and 150 respectively at date1. When I write the unit codes, the sales in row 10, 30 and 150 (for date1) should be added as sum_ABC_date1.Similarly for date2, the sales of the same units (A, B, C) (say in row 300, 325 and 470) should be added as sum_ABC_date2 and so on. Then I can drop the A, B, C's and work with sum_ABC_datei ones. Obviously sum_ABC_datei's will be created as additional rows (not columns). Hope I didnt explain it in a complex way? bk ---------------------------------------- > Date: Sun, 14 Nov 2010 07:56:55 +0800 > Subject: Re: st: panel - rowtotal > From: [email protected] > To: [email protected] > > Hi, > > This is easier if you have unique code for each unit.

I have the dates in the first column, codes of the marketing units in the second column and sales of each unit in the third column. Some marketing units have affiliates.

All I need to do is to sum the sales of A, B and C at date1. Then I'll do the same for date2, date3.. etc. Finally, I'll drop B and C.
