Variance between two Months

Hello everyone,

I have a pivot table in which there are month columns ie. April-March.I want to calculate variance between the two selected months.

Eg. If i select April and March i should be getting the vairance between them in the next column called variance in a pivot table.

Thanks & Regards,

Hello Sunny,

Cant uplaod the data but attaching an image for more clear understanding.

Now i have selected Jan and Feb so i got the variance as shown in image,in short based on selection of two months i sould get the variance.

My dimension is Month and

Expression is Sum(Cost Amount)

Thanks

Re: Variance between two Months

I used this formula:

Sum(Amount) - Above(Sum(Amount))

But it only work when data is present in both months, but when i select Jan and Feb

Jan has some value and feb is null den it gives me null only.

Use Alt() function

Like

Alt(Sum(Amount),0)

Hi

if you use a pivot table in qlik sense dont use above function but before() :

mesure variance

sum(amount) - before(sum(amount))

hope it helps
