Program indicator expressions

Hi

Can anyone advise on whether program indicator expressions can use data elements with option sets? They do not appear in the list of data elements available, but it does not tell me my expression using the UID of one is invalid. However, it also does not give me a result. Example I am trying to use is:

d2:condition(’#{qaDVwQUHD0j.g4bPEQ4a7WM} == ‘LB’ ',1,0)

to return a value of 1 if that condition is true, otherwise 0. Is that possible and I am just writing my expression wrongly? Even with a Boolean data element that does appear in the list of data elements, I could not get a result using == 1, == TRUE, == Yes.

Any guidance is appreciated.

Thanks

Jane

Hi there Jane!
The problem with the below condition is that we are using single quotes inside a single quoted statement. This is not supported at the moment.

Not really knowing enough about the use case, I venture into suggeting a possible workaround: If you are able to use the condition below as a filter statement instead of an expression, you can change the aggregation type to "Count", and the expression to "V{event_count}".

HI Markus

Thanks for your response. I thought that might be the problem. Unfortunately our use case is more complex than my example, so the filter workaround doesn’t help – we want the indicator to return a combined set of conditions. For example, 3 data elements all with the same option set for delivery of up to 3 babies for a pregnancy, to count not the event once, but 0, 1, 2 or 3 live births (option ‘LB’) from the 3 data elements for baby outcome. It sounds like we will have to make numerous program indicators using filters, and then aggregate indicators to combine them. We were trying to avoid that!

Thanks

Jane

So numeric would solve it for us?

That is, if the code for the option we want is numeric = 2 in all 3 data elements, this should work?:

d2:condition(’#{qaDVwQUHD0j.g4bPEQ4a7WM} == 2 ',1,0) +

d2:condition(’#{qaDVwQUHD0j.FFpJ2FZU7rJ} == 2 ',1,0) +
