Microstrategy Metric. Help!!

Microstrategy Metric. Help!!

Microstrategy Metric. Help!!

I'm sorry because I'm Spanish, and I write very bad English
This is my problem:

I need create a new metric as:

if atribute.id equals 'DB' (string) then my
    metric = Fact saldo * (-1)
    metric = Fact Saldo
end if

May you help me??

RE: Microstrategy Metric. Help!!

you need to use the case functions:  check out these technotes

TN5200-071-0120 - How to create metrics with 'CASE' expressions in MicroStrategy SQL Generation Engine 7.1   \\

TN5300-7X0-0259 - Case and CaseV functions in the MicroStrategy 7 Analytical Engine     

RE: Microstrategy Metric. Help!!

Thank you.
I think it runs OK now.
I maked a new fact with both fields using the Case and ApplySimple functions:

This is my fact:
ApplySimple("CASE WHEN #0 in ('DB') THEN ((-1)*#1)
WHEN #0 in ('HB')  THEN #1
END"; [field_atribute ]; field_SALDO)

And then I make the metric with it.

Thank you again.
