Re: HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Balu it is just as you can add a derived field as level and then you can easily do the ranking.

Re: HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this is the expression:


(if(aggr(min(level),Division, [Person Name])<aggr(max(level),Division, [Person Name]),1,0))

the chart has two dimensions:

division and person name

the script is:


* Inline

[Person Name ,Division ,Desigination ,Change date

Person A,IT,Engineer,1/1/2013

Person B,IT,Engineer,1/1/2013

Person A,IT,Manager,2/2/2013

Person B,IT,Asst Manager,3/3/2013


left  Join

load * Inline


Desigination, level


Asst Manager, 2

Manager, 3


However try to load data again in the file I sent to you

Re: HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I pasted the one which you gave me in QVW but What I see in the Bar chat is Person A and Person B and Division shows as IT but I also wanted to know From what Designation to what designation each person has changed. Also is it possible for you to explain me the expression?

Re: HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've designed a chart flat table ...

So you would like a bar chart with person name and division, but how would you display the information of changing designation? Isn't better to show information with a table? Let me know

Re: HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope it helps
