Previous month vs Current Month in Qlik sense

Hi Qlikers,

I wanted to show line Chart  for Previous month and current month for dimension :Month-> Day


Expression for current month 

=sum({<type={'Order'},FiscalYear={$(=max(FiscalYear))}>} Sales)

Current Month works fine

Expression for Previous month

=sum({<type={'Order'},FiscalYear={$(=max(FiscalYear))},MonthID={$(=max(MonthID)-1)}>} Sales)

It Showing Wrong output

Can anyone help me?

If you have Month as Dimension, then you have to keep in mind that in QlikView Set Analysis, Set Expression will evaluate once only per chart..

Don't you think, Current month should like this?

sum({<type={'Order'},FiscalYear={"$(=max(FiscalYear))"},MonthID={"$(=max(MonthID))"}>} Sales)

Hi,


Use above function : (above(sum({<type={'Order'},FiscalYear={"$(=max(FiscalYear))"}>} Sales))


and set previous year max month in the variable then use that variable in null values in the column.

Hi Scotly,

In our master calendar, make use of inMonth() and InMonthToDate() function to set flags and make use of these flags in set analysis.

This will even improve the performance.

Thanks,

Sangram.
