Hi Sunny,

Thanks a lot!

I change the function After() to before().

Using (Sum(Measure)/Before(Sum({<Year>}Measure)) - 1) * Avg(1) in expression.

It worked!

Something like this

(Sum(Measure)/After(Sum({<Year>}Measure)) - 1) * Avg(1)

Hi Yashu,


If I got your requirement correctly then you are trying to calculate YoY - Year Over Year growth from the table


For Example: 2017-18: 10782

                       2016-17: 10478

then Growth Rate for Year 2017-18 will be (10782/10478)-1 i.e. 2.90%.

For above problem statement, one solution which can be proposed is:

1. First Order your table on Year in Ascending Order while loading.

Example: Your table after loading script should be in below order:

2. Add one more Field while loading your table in Load Editor using Previous() Function, as shown below.

This field will carry your previous year Total concurrently with you current year field.

3. Basis above fields,

    Growth Rate Measure will be: =Sum(Sales)/Sum(LYSales)-1


4. Output Table:

Please check if this works for you.

Hitesh

Hi Hitesh,

I really appreciate your help!

The data not just include this two columns, and 'Sales' need to be summed up in order to get the total of sales. How should I define the Previous() in this case?

eg. Table include Year, Country, Category, Sales four columns.

Thanks again!

hi yashu,

Previous() will work for calculating growth when you have Year dimension only, so that you can bring value of previous row value concurrently with your current row value.

In case of multiple dimensions, After() will be the solution.

Thanks,

Hitesh
