## Returning data of Friday on Monday

Hi Guys,

every morning I want to show my colleagues the sales of yesterday.

We're not open in the weekend, so on Monday I want to show the sales of the previous Friday.

Should I script this in my calendar? And if yes, what is the best way to do this?

Attached you'll find the script of my calendar.

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,

Mike

You should be modifying the expression like below

example

=if(num(WeekDay(Today()))= 0   /// Checking if today is Monday

, sum({<SalesDate = {"\$(=DATE(Today()-3,'YOURDATEFORMAT'))"} >}Sales)   // Sales for Previous Friday

,else_your_existing_expression )

First load your data in App.

Sales:

LOAD * FROM SalesData.qvd;

//Then calculate maximum date of your data.

MaxDate:

LOAD max(Date) as MaximumDate

Resident Sales;

LET varMaxDate = num(peek('MaximumDate',0,'MaxDate'));

This should solv your problem.
