I have two fields, one is called Departure Month and the other is Departure Year
Departure Month is listed as a number so January = 1
Departure year is also number so 2017-2017
I want to combine the two into a single dimension so that my dimension is in chronological order.
Maybe use something in script or chart dimension like
Monthname(Makedate([Departure Year],[Departure Month]))
In the data load editor you can say
Departure Year & '-' & Departure Month as Fieldname
the result should be Month-Year
I prefer a different approach, I usually create a date field, makedate(departure year, departure month, 1),and then play with formatting.
But it really depends on the use case, once you got a date, it's easier to calculate gaps between two periods, use set analysis, etc.
On the other hand, sometimes you need / want to keep it simple.
Hope it helps,
