how to select attributes with sum equal to a specific number?

mansourmansour Member Posts: 26 Contributor II
Dear All
I have a large dataset and I'd like to select just the attributes which sum of each attribute is equal to zero, or 1 or 2.
Any hint?
Regards

    Hi,
    thats a fun one.

    I would create myself a custom weights object using aggregate. Then you can use Select by weights to apply those weights as a filter. Attached is an example.

    Best,
    Martin
