Re: Year On Year growth %

Generally it's calculated using something like this: ValueOfYear2 / ValueOfYear1 - 1

Re: Year On Year growth %

(Current Year - Previous Year)/Previous Year

for Growth %

Re: Year On Year growth %

Are you doing this with Year as your dimension? If you are, then you either need to use Above()/Below() functions, or you can use The As-Of Table‌ to do it more efficiently.

Re: Year On Year growth %

Since we are looking at dates, the above()/below() may not be perfect and with missing entries, it can further complicate. Use As-Of Table is a better approach in this case.

Script:

Table:

LOAD Date(Date#(Date_Field,'DD-MM-YYYY'),'DD-MM-YYYY') as  Date_Field,

  Sales

INLINE [

Date_Field, Sales

01-01-2015 ,10
