## Qlik Sense MTD and YTD

Hi.

I would like to create a KPI with current months data on the left and last year same months calculation on the right within same KPI

Currently I am using the following calculation but it does not seem to be working as both values always shows current filters values.

Left side KPI Measure = Sum(sessions)

Right side KPI measure =

Sum({<Year=, Month=, Quarter=, Week=, DateField=, DateNum={">=\$(=Num(YearStart(Max(DateNum))))<=\$(=Max(DateNum))"}>} Sessions)

Filters applied = 05/05/2016 ( DD/MM/YYYY)

Can anyone please suggest an alternative formula which will give me the aforementioned result

Maybe try like this:

Sum({<Year=, Month=, Quarter=, Week=, DateField=, DateNum={">=\$(=Num(YearStart(Max(DateNum)))<=Max(DateNum)))"}>} Sessions)

Hi

may be this :

left :

Last MTD

Sum({<Year=, Quarter=, Month=, Week=, DateField={‘>=\$(=MonthStart(Max(DateField)))<=\$(=AddMonths(Max(DateField)))’}>} Sessions)

Right :

Last MTD, 12 months before

Sum({<Year=, Quarter=, Month=, Week=, DateField={‘>=\$(=MonthStart(Max(DateField), -12))<=\$(=AddMonths(Max(DateField), -12))’}>} Sessions)

Hi Cesar, Thank you for helping.

Unfortunitely that doesnt work. Right side of KPI always shows zero. And those values for same MTD last year is not zero

try this

Right :

Last MTD, 12 months before

Sum({<Year=, Quarter=, Month=, Week=, DateField={‘>=\$(=MonthStart(Max(DateField) -12))<=\$(=AddMonths(Max(DateField) -12))’}>} Sessions)

Hi Arnoux,

I would recommend you to have a MTD and YTD flags in your master calendar as this would reduce the load on the visualizations and also improve your performance.

Make use of inyeartodate() and inmonthtodate() function in your master calendar.

Thanks,

Sangram.

Thank you Sangram. Being new to Qlik Sense. I have never heard of that function.

When trying to run it in the script, it gives me an error.saying the function does not exist.

Could you try and help me out here and maybe explain what these functions are supposed to do?
