## Help needed in writing this expression!!

Hello All,

I am unsure on how to calculte the turnover percentage from the below table. Below is an example of how my data look like in database. Everyday a snapshot of data is taken and is stored in a data warehouse. Each date when the snapshot is taken is stored in the effective date column.

Emplid
TerminationDate
Gender
EffectiveDate
14/25/2006M9/28/2006
2-M9/28/2006
38/28/2005F9/28/2006

As, you can see on each date the data keeps on changing (new employees are added and some eployees left the company. I have to use :

Dimension as FY-06, FY-07, etc...where FY-06 corresponds to a specific date range..eg from ,23sep,05 to 28 , oct, 06.

second dimension as Gender.

Expression is something I am facing problem. I have a created a daterange using interval match for FY-06, FY-07 etc.

Turover for 06 would be:

%= count(distinct(all employees in Fy -06, where TermDate is not NULL) /

((count(for the date range for FY-06(the total employees based on male & female seperately)/ total count distinct date (date when snapshots are taken in database) for FY-06))

this is for fy-06. So the formula should be generalized and should calcuate for each year and display it on bar graph.

I used something like this:

count(isnull(termdate=0,Emplid))/((count(Total<daterange, gender>, emplid)/ X)

X- should vary distinctly. Like suppose if we have 300 days of which we are taking data in account for FY-06, it should return 300 and so on for FY-07, FY-08, FY-09 etc.

how to add a denominator that can calculate count of total distinct date for each year??
