Re: Duplicate derived field

Hi,

You may be using autoCalendar: twice or going through a routine that uses Derive Fields without renaming it.

The only time I've seen this happening is when I created a subroutine to create mastercalendars passing parameters. The second time I passed through it it gave me that error. I corrected by making the name of the field declaration variable vAuto

Something like this:

// AutoCalendar

  Let vAuto = vDateFieldText & '_Auto';

  [$(vAuto)]:

  Declare Field Definition Tagged ('$date')

  Fields

    Dual(Year($1)&'-'&Month($1), monthstart($1)) AS [YearMonth] Tagged ('$axis', '$yearmonth', '$qualified'),

    Dual(Month($1), monthstart($1)) AS [_YearMonth] Tagged ('$axis', '$yearmonth', '$simplified', '$hidden'),

    If (DayNumberOfYear($1) <= DayNumberOfYear(Today()), 1, 0) AS [InYTD] ,

    If (DayNumberOfYear($1,7) <= DayNumberOfYear(Today(),7), 1, 0) AS [InFYTD] ,

    If(Day($1)<=Day(Today()),1,0) AS [InMTD] ,

    Year(Today())-Year($1) AS [YearsAgo] ,

    12*Year(Today())+Month(Today())-12*Year($1)-Month($1) AS [MonthsAgo] ,

    Month(Today())-Month($1) AS [MonthRelNo];

  Derive Fields from Fields $(vDateFieldName) Using [$(vAuto)];

Re: Duplicate derived field

Can you share your calendar script snippet, looks like something is wrong related to it.

Thanks,

Re: Duplicate derived field

Hi Balaji, where is INDI_DATE_OF_BIRTH? That's where the problem is happening

Re: Duplicate derived field

You have two options, either add INDI_DATE_OF_BIRTH to this script and delete the other, or rename [autoCalendar]: to something like [autoCalendar2]:


I hope this helps,

Luis
