Hi ,

 

i have a data of employees in a year from jan to dec so every month some of the employees gets terminated i want to count the no of employees terminated

ex:

jan  5

feb  4

mar 6

so when i click on feb month it should calculate feb - jan that is 4-5=-1

i tried using previous but it is not working

Hi,

Can you please share what data do you have? Just give an example.

If you have a data like

Month, NoOfEmployee

Jan2018, 6

Feb2019,5

 

and you are trying to get the number of people terminated, than you will probably get a wrong number as you should take into account that sometimes there are new people too.

e.g. if in Feb 3 were terminated, but there are 2 new, than in your way you are getting 1, but a correct answer is three...

Hope it makes sense

Regards,
Sergey

I'd recommend you to do the calc in your load script using previous() and/or Peek() function on the ordered table by division, sub division and year-month (or date).

Try to search how to use those. It's pretty simple
