## Last Closing Balance SUM Required

Dear Experts,

I have a table with date and segment wise balances.

Now I want to get total of all balances for the segment's last balance at any month closing.

For Example:

Date              Segment          Balance

01-JAN-2017    A                     10

02-JAN-2017    A                      11

10-JAN-2017    A                       12

31-JAN-2017    A                        13

15-JAN-2017    B                         20

31-JAN-2017    B                         25

Now I want to get JAN Balances

A= 13 (As it is last closing balance)

B = 25 (As it is last closing balance)

For total Jan Balance It should be 13=25=38

Regards,

Zahid Rahim

Hi Zahid,

in SCRIPT create flag field that flags your max date for each month and segment:

YourTable:

Date,

Segment,

Balance,

Month(Date#(Date,'DD-MMM-YYYY'))      as Month

FROM YourSource;

Left Join (YourTable)

tmp:

max(Date)                                              as MaxDate,

Segment,

Month

Resident YourTable

Group by Segment, Month;

FinalTable:

if(MaxDate=Date,1,0) as @MaxDate

Resident tmp;

DROP Table YourTable;

DROP Field MaxDate;

in FRONT-END:

Create straight table

Dimensions: Month, Segment

Expression: sum({<@MaxDate = {1}>}Balance)

This is performance friendly solution.

Hi,

Sum(Aggr(FirstSortedValue(Balance,-Date),Segment))

You can also use in Text Box.

## Re: Last Closing Balance SUM Required

Dear Antonio,

Thank you very much for the solution.

Can you please guide me for month wise balance as you gave segment wise.

Jan-17 = 38

Suppose we have other months data as well.

Feb-17  = 48

Mar-17   = 58

etc.

Regards,

Zahid Rahim

Dear Antonio,

Sorry for disturbing you. Cannot i get monthwise last balances only. I mean without segments.
