Eliminate Current Month

Hi Team,

I have req like exclude the current month while calculate the average ref lines


If i selected a year 2018 (Jul 2017 to Feb 18 ) will come .

Total counts = 112 (Include feb 18). But I want to  exclude feb 18 while adding ref lines

At the same time it won't affect rest of the previous years

My expression  :Count({$<[Group] = {'dfgdg'}>} DISTINCT xyz ))  it will return 112

Here how can i exclude feb ?


REF line expression is :  

Count({$<[Group] = {'dfgdg'}>} DISTINCT xyz ))  / Count ([Year Month])

if i remove the feb in the calculation avg line should b 15.9

Please help on this

Try this

Count({$<[Group] = {'dfgdg'}>} DISTINCT xyz ))  /  Count({$<[Year Month]={"<$(=MonthYear(today()))"}>}[Year Month])

You need to exclude current month thru set analysis, need to correct formatting and date fieldname -

Count({$<[Group] = {'dfgdg'},Date = {"<$(=MonthStart(today()))"}>} DISTINCT xyz ))


Use this in set modifier to eliminate current month count.

May be This

count({<Month -= {"$(=Date(MonthStart(Today()), 'MMM-YYYY'))"}>}DISTINCT xyz )

I think that you need to exclude de Month-Year, because that's the format of the dimension from the bottom of the barchart.

If you have a Master Calendar which contains the MonthYear field, just use the following expression:

=Count({$<[Group] = {'dfgdg'}, MonthYear-={"$(=Date(MonthStart(Today()), 'MMM-YYYY'))"}>} DISTINCT xyz )

I need to exclude the count also  in the numerator

in the denominator  i can do.
