## Dynamic Variables

Hello,

I would like to create a variable with varying conditions depending on the month of the quarter, i have used below formulae for the same in Data Load editor:

if Mod(Month(Today()),3)=0 then

Set vTest = Sum({\$<[Projection.Period]={'\$(=Max([Projection.Period],2))'}>} [Projection.Projection]) ;

elseif Mod(Month(Today()),3)=1 then

Set vTest = Sum([Projection.Projection]);

else

Set vTest = Sum({\$<[Projection.Period]={'\$(=Max([Projection.Period]))'}>} [Projection.Projection) ;

end if;

I have used these variables in application but it's not working except for the part where set analysis is not there

Why set analysis cannot be computed in if statement?

Thanks,

Arvind

Try this

if Mod(Month(Today()),3)=0 then

Set vTest = Sum({@<[Projection.Period]={'@(=Max([Projection.Period],2))'}>} [Projection.Projection]) ;

elseif Mod(Month(Today()),3)=1 then

Set vTest = Sum([Projection.Projection]);

else

Set vTest = Sum({@<[Projection.Period]={'@(=Max([Projection.Period]))'}>} [Projection.Projection) ;

end if;

SET vTestFinal = "=Replace(\$(vTest), '@', '\$')";

give a try with the below syntax:

LET vTest = 'Sum( {< [Projection.Period]={' & chr(39) & chr(36) & '(=Max([Projection.Period])) ' & chr(39) & '} >} [Projection.Projection])';

This is not working.

Set analysis works while creating a measure and giving it a formula.

But i want this measure to have a dynamic value using set analysis.

Can you help on how to upload sample file as there are only image and video upload options.

May be try the approach which Stefan talks about here

Expression as a variable with \$-sign expansion
