I have a case where demand is seen for last 4 years and also the supply.
Demand or supply may vary for a particular day. There will be days where there is no demand or supply, or it could be that there is demand (no supply) /supply (no demand).
Like here we see from years (2014-2017) how a commodity is.
Dimension : Year(Supply Date field)
Measure: Count ( Supply Date field)
And here is the demand for the same commodity in last 4 years.
Dimension : Year(Demand Date field)
Measure: Count ( Demand Date field)
I want to combine this two charts to show on a common chart so that i can compare them one to other.
What would be the best way to do it ??
Let me know the best thoughts you have around this.

Hi everyone !!
I found an excellent way to solve this problem
Refer to : Canonical Date
Linking to two or more dates
This solved my problem.
Create a calendar date and load like this
[Supply Date] as Date,
1 as [Supply Count]
1 as [Demand Count]
Give dimension as Year(Date) and measures as sum([Supply Count]) and sum([Demand Count]) in a Line Chart
Load your data into a fact table that combines the two measures
Fact Type -> supply / demand
Should let you compare your data how you want.
Thanks Aar kay for the reply
But I dont have any master Calender.
How should i create a calender Date?
Thanks Andy for your reply,
But still i dont understand whats a fact table.
How to create it ??
At the end i need a line chart showing the values.
Sample to create calendar dates
LET vStartDate = num(Floor(YearStart(Today(),-15))); //for min Date 1/1/2002
LET vEndDate = num(Floor(YearEnd(Today(),15))); // //for max Date 12/31/2032
LET vToday = num(Today());
LET vYesterday = num(Today()-1);
$(vStartDate) + RowNo() - 1 AS Num,
date($(vStartDate) + RowNo() - 1) AS Date
$(vEndDate) - $(vStartDate) + 1;
So did you call this section in the script as Master calender??
When i try to do this in the script it did not identify the Master calender
I am getting error here. The date and master calender seems like is not identified.
I just gave you a sample code aman, try creating a calendar and load and link that date field to both the supply and demand dates that way there will be a common link to show the comparison on a graph.
Can you share the sample file
So here is the attached sample.
Consider Actual PR1 as Demand
and Actual PR3 as Supply.
Go to the Data script and you will see the error.
Let me know if you need anything else.
