## Re: Month- Number

Hi Anurag,

Here is a sample master calendar script if you would like to incorporate this in your application:

LET vDateMin = Num(MakeDate(2000,1,1));

LET vDateMax = Num(MakeDate(2001,12,31));

LET vDateToday = Num(Today());

TempCalendar:

\$(vDateMin) + RowNo() - 1 AS DateNumber,

Date(\$(vDateMin) + RowNo() - 1) AS TempDate

AUTOGENERATE 1

WHILE \$(vDateMin)+IterNo()-1<= \$(vDateMax);

Calendar:

Date(TempDate) AS [Calendar Date],

// Standard Date Objects

Day(TempDate) AS CalendarDayOfMonth,

WeekDay(TempDate) AS CalendarDayName,

Week(TempDate) AS CalendarWeekOfYear,

Month(TempDate) AS Month,

num(Month(TempDate)) AS MonthNum,

Num(Num(Year(TempDate))&if(Num(Month(TempDate))<10,0)&Num(Month(TempDate)))  as CalendarYYYYMM,

'Q' & Ceil(Month(TempDate)/3) AS CalendarQuarter,

Year(TempDate) AS Year,

// Calendar Date Names

WeekName(TempDate) as CalendarWeekNumberAndYear,

MonthName(TempDate) as CalendarMonthAndYear,

QuarterName(TempDate) as CalendarQuarterMonthsAndYear,

// Start Dates

DayStart(TempDate) as CalendarDayStart,

WeekStart(TempDate) as CalendarWeekStart,

Date(MonthStart(TempDate)) as CalendarMonthStart,

QuarterStart(TempDate) as CalendarQuarterStart,

YearStart(TempDate) as CalendarYearStart,

// End Dates

DayEnd(TempDate) as CalendarDayEnd,

WeekEnd(TempDate) as CalendarWeekEnd,

MonthEnd(TempDate) as CalendarMonthEnd,

QuarterEnd(TempDate) as CalendarQuarterEnd,

YearEnd(TempDate) as CalendarYearEnd,

// Combo Date Examples

'Q' & Ceil(Month(TempDate)/3) & '/' & Year(TempDate) AS CalendarQuarterAndYear,

Year(TempDate) & '/' & 'Q' & Ceil(Month(TempDate)/3) AS CalendarYearAndQuarter,

'Wed ' & DayStart(WeekStart(TempDate) + 3) as CalendarWednesdays

RESIDENT TempCalendar ORDER BY TempDate ASC;

DROP TABLE TempCalendar;

## Re: Month- Number

Assuming you have month field in your data model.

easiest way is to add a inline table and do a left join to your calendar.  or try using "Master Calendar script" which you can find it in community.

Month_Sort:

Month, MonthSort

January, 1

February, 2

March, 3

April, 4

May, 5

June, 6

July, 7

August, 8

September, 9

October, 10

November, 11

December, 12

## Re: Month- Number

Hi Sean,

I need a small clarification,

I added the below command to the code since I want to get the Year ans Month Data field as below,

Year(TempDate) & '/' & '' & Month(TempDate) AS CalendarYearAndMonth,

When I generate a line graph for actual sales which got data from July 2017 to July 2018, it h=gave me the below output. Ideally, the 2018/July data value should be at the end of the chart after 2018/June.

Could you pls advise me, how to accomplish the said issue?

Thanks.

Andy
