Hi Folks,

i solved this issue by this way:

load date(FROMDATE + iterno() - 1) as DATE, [Amount] / (TODATE - FROMDATE) as DailyAmoount

from Source while FROMDATE + iterno() - 1 <= TODATE;

and after reload i do concatenate the Field: DATE with MasterCalender

i hope that helps

if([Effective Date]>='05/01/2014' and [Effective Date]<='08/01/2015'  ,[Effective Date]) as NewDate

This would give dates only in between above dates.

Is that what you looking for?

If date field is defined then probably do preceding load?

Load*,

if([Effective Date]>='05/01/2014' and [Effective Date]<='08/01/2015'  ,[Effective Date]) as NewDate;

Hi Aehman,

first of all thanks a lot for your response,

i am looking for the procedure, where i can implement the Fields: FROMDATE, TODATE into Mastercalender as one Field.

Do you have any ideas or technique to solve this issue?

Try this procedure to create dates between "FROMDATE" and "TODATE"

Temp_Date_Range:

LOAD

num(Min(DATE("Close_Date"))) as FromDate,

num(Max(DATE("Close_Date"))) as ToDate

Resident  Data_Table;

LET vMinDate=Peek('FromDate',0,'Temp_Date_Range');

LET vMaxDate=Peek('ToDate',0,'Temp_Date_Range'); 

drop table  Temp_Date_Range;

MasterCalender:

LOAD DISTINCT

  $(vMinDate) +IterNo()-1 as Temp_Date

  AutoGenerate(1)

  while IterNo()+$(vMinDate)-1<=$(vMaxDate);

FromDate and ToDate are probably not best represented as fields in the calendar. They are usually implemented in variables, whicj you can then use in set expressions and calculated dimensions.

Perhaps you could explain exactly what end result you are pursuing?

We can use  Set analysis but this is one of the way of generating dates between MIn and Max Dates.

In Data_Table Close_Date is Date of transaction .i am searching MIN Date and MAX Date to create Dates between MIN & MAX dates.

I used  Variable in looping .variable use is better than write ( num(Min(DATE("Close_Date"))) )

even in looping date should be in Number format.

If you want two or more date fields to be represented by one field, you should create a Canonical Date:

Canonical Date

If you want to generate all dates between the two, you should create a reference date:

Hi

if Form Date and To date are not exactly fields then you can use the date field from master calender in 2 different state and use one of them as from date and another as to date in your calculation.
