Getting period of data

Hi all,

So here the scenario is, I have to get the dates for 24 months of period for a sales report and it should be automated. Suppose I should a time period from 1/4/2017 to 1/4/2018 but when it comes to the 25th month, the start date of 1st month should also be changed, so that I would get results for only 24 months.

Should I go for YTD or anything else?

And it should be in the scripting, not in front end.

Thanks

KHARANSU

There I am using "LAUNCH DATE" as the required date field.

Ok

so to roll back 24 months dynamically and to have this value today: 01/04/2016, you can use this:

=MonthStart(AddYears(Date(today()),-2))

to get the first day of the actual month, you can use this:

MonthStart(today())

on you script, at the end of the load, do this:

TABLE:

LOAD

.

.

FROM

WHERE DATE_FIELD >= MonthStart(AddYears(Date(today()),-2)) and DATE_FIELD <= MonthStart(today());

WHERE DATE_FIELD >= MonthStart(AddYears(Date(today()),-2)) and DATE_FIELD <= MonthStart(today());

here, in place of AddYears, should I put any values or keep it like that?

Like this it is 100% dynamic on each reload, so keep it like that and let me know

But when 'am showing it as a FIELD it's showing only "-1" values in the table viewer.

I want it like this -

What exactly are you showing as a field to get only "-1" as values ?

No, I don't want to show "-1" but when I am putting the script you have suggested I'm getting "-1" but I want to get values like the screenshot I have attached.

I am not able to attach the qvf, so copying the part of scripting I have used.

you didn't read carefully what I said.. and you didn't mention that you want a field called age which represent the months age..

from the start, it was about reducing DATA to the last 24 months, and do it on the script.

I asked you to put the line on the WHERE clause and not inside the LOAD..

so try this (supposing everything else is working perfectly on your existing load):

//ADD THIS LINE

//Function to calculate Months Difference in script

SET MonthDiff = Num(((year($2) * 12) + month($2)) - (((year($1) * 12) + month($1))) + 1);
