Time period comparison

Hi All,

I want to create a column which compares current month against the previous month. The format of months is 01 JAN, 02 FEB, 03 MAR. Is it possible to set it up so that the calculation is dynamic so that when current month changes it changes automatically?

 

Many Thanks

Hi ,

You can achieve the same in set analysis using variables:

The syntax for the set analysis in Qlik Sense using a variables is slightly different.

vCurrentMonth   = Date(max([MonthYear]), 'MMM-YY')

vPreviousMonth = Date(addmonths(max([MonthYear]), -1), 'MMM-YY')

 

Expression

 

sum({$<MonthYear ={'$(=$(vCurrentMonth))'}>}[Expense Amt])

sum({$<MonthYear = {'$(=$(vPreviousMonth))'}>}[Expense Amt])

Hope this resolve your issue.
