Returns the number of data values in the specified data set (XrangeList).

Syntax

`@COUNT (SKIPNONE | SKIPMISSING | SKIPZERO | SKIPBOTH, XrangeList)`

Parameter | Description |
---|---|

SKIPNONE |
Includes all cells specified in the data set, regardless of their content, during calculation of the count. |

SKIPMISSING |
Excludes all #MISSING values from the data set during calculation of the count. |

SKIPZERO |
Excludes all zero (0) values from the data set during calculation of the count. |

SKIPBOTH |
Excludes all zero (0) values and #MISSING values from the data set during calculation of the count. |

XrangeList |
A list of numeric values. Referred to generically throughout this topic as “the data set.” Can be a valid member name, a comma-delimited list of member names, cross dimensional members, or a return value from a member set function or range function (including @XRANGE). For more information about XrangeList, see Range List Parameters in the topic Range and Financial Functions. |

Notes

The @COUNT function always returns an integer greater than or equal to 0.

Example

The following example is based on the Sample Basic database. Assume that the Measures dimension contains an additional member, Prod Count. This example calculates the count of all products for which a data value exists and uses the @RANGE function to generate expList:

FIX(Product) "Prod Count" = @COUNT(SKIPMISSING,@RANGE(Sales,@CHILDREN(Product))); ENDFIX

This example produces the following report. Since SKIPMISSING is specified in the calculation script, the #MI values for Diet Drinks are skipped during the product count.

Jan New York Actual Budget ====== ====== Sales Colas 678 640 Root Beer 551 530 Cream Soda 663 510 Fruit Soda 587 620 Diet Drinks #MI #MI Product 2479 2300 Prod Count Product 4 4

The following example assumes a Year dimension is added to Sample Basic. It counts data values using cross-dimensional members in the data set.

FIX(Product) "Count" = @COUNT(SKIPMISSING,@XRANGE("2011"->"Sep", "2012"->"Mar")); ENDFIX

The above calculation is performed across the following multidimensional range specified by XrangeList:

2011->Sep 2011->Oct 2011->Nov 2011->Dec 2012->Jan 2012->Feb 2012->Mar
