Set analysis using week number of date dimension

Looking for help from the community:

I have a simple table that looks something like this:

Date  Type Value

09/09/2017  S  100

10/09/2017  S  100

I am trying to get a set analysis work that sums Values but only where the week number of the Date is equal to the current week number (in future I may change this to be some other variable).

What I've tried:


Created a variable to get current week number: 

vCurWeek = Week([Date], 0)

Used the following measure in my table: 

Sum({$< Week([Date],0) = {$(vCurWeek)} >} Value)

But get no results.

I've tested the variable as well as using Week([Date], 0) in a text box/table and both are ok. I just can't get it to work as part of the set analysis, despite it looking pretty much the same as the correct answer in this post: Help to SET Analysis - get past 4 weeks

Thank you!

Try like this,


load *,Week(Date) as Week;

load * Inline [

Date,  Type, Value

09/09/2017,  S,  100

10/09/2017,  S,  100


create variable as



Set analysis expression as

=Sum({$< Week = {$(vCurWeek)} >} Value)

P.S: best way u can use master calendar script

You will not be able to use like you have it. The highlighted portion in red has to be replaced by a weeknumber field that you may have calculated in your script.

Sum({$< Week([Date],0) = {$(vCurWeek)} >} Value)

In the post you have included it is a field comparison to a variable

Count({<weeknumber = {$(vCurrentWeek)}>} solditems).

Providing a larger sample data and your script may help us to help you.

Best Regards,
