Hi, i am trying to use if then else statements in a calculated metric to give me a column with all relevant numbers. However it will only generate the first 2 correctly then seems to stop, i have tried stripping right back but i cant seem to get some to work at all.

I am simply using a calculated metric to say If metric = A then value of X, else If metric = B, then value of Y, if metric = C then value = Z ELSE value 0

Any help please would be great! Thank you

Hi,

I had the same issue. On an aggregated level, Adobe will read the calculated metric, and the first condition that is true will apply to all of the data, rather than it consider every hit and then aggregate up from there.


There is no workaround unless you break the data down using the dimension in your calculated metric. I have raised this with Adobe and their suggestion was to raise this to the forum.

Hope this helps!

Hi Laurab,

I've tried creating a calculated metric using 'if' statement (see the screengrabs) & in this case I've taken referring domains as a dimension with visit metrics & it seems to be working fine. You can use the similar logic & see if it's working for you.
