How to create following table

Hi,

Have below scenario.

Below is the sample data.

          

CompanyMetricQtrValue
aSalesQ1'17590
aSalesQ2'17572
aSalesQ3'17889
aSalesQ4'17793
aSalesQ1'18784
aSalesQ2'18758
aSalesQ3'18746
aSalesQ4'18268
bSalesQ1'17561
bSalesQ2'17968
bSalesQ3'17627
bSalesQ4'17660
bSalesQ1'18999
bSalesQ2'18664
bSalesQ3'18324
bSalesQ4'18617
aExpensesQ1'17127
aExpensesQ2'1798
aExpensesQ3'17128
aExpensesQ4'17138
aExpensesQ1'1871

bExpensesQ4'1756
bExpensesQ1'18118
bExpensesQ2'18133
bExpensesQ3'18146
bExpensesQ4'1854

Trying to get the below comparison table

Table.PNG

Can I fit all these in a single Table? I presume NO, in that case do I need to plot 3 different set of Values

(1. Absolute Values 2. Quarterly difference: Ex: Q1'18-Q1'17... 3. Quarterly difference proposition : Ex: Q'18/Q1'17 -1 )

I am unable to get the 2nd and 3rd set of Values  (i.e Diff, propositions).

Can anyone help me?

Now if we may, please close this thread by marking correct and helpful responses and keep any further additions for another thread. The reason I ask this is because we have already tried to work on multiple things on this thread and it might make it easy for future readers if we stop this here and create new thread with a better heading for add-on requirements.

Best,

Sunny

Not sure 100% what you are looking for, but the below code will flip the Row 'Qtr' to multiple columns and then you can create the chart. Hope this helps:

GENERIC Load * Inline [
Company, Metric, Qtr, Value
a, Sales, Q1'17, 590
a, Sales, Q2'17, 572
a, Sales, Q3'17, 889
a, Sales, Q4'17, 793
a, Sales, Q1'18, 784
a, Sales, Q2'18, 758
a, Sales, Q3'18, 746
a, Sales, Q4'18, 268
b, Sales, Q1'17, 561
b, Sales, Q2'17, 968
b, Sales, Q3'17, 627
b, Sales, Q4'17, 660
b, Sales, Q1'18, 999

b, Sales, Q3'18, 324

absolutely this is the view.. Is there any way that to sort the Qtrs in sequence.. Ex: Q1'17, Q2'17...

Now the sequence is Q1'17, Q1'18 in your solution.

Kudos Sunny

cool. Have a query with the sort exp for dim " RangeSum(Only({1} Dim), QtrSort/1e10)".. what does this do?

for Diff and % change , still the sequence is altered. Can we use any conditional formatting for the Diff, % change value (Ex: bold for negative values)

Note : You had mastered the QV functions' applications. I was thinking to develop 3 charts, one for Values, 2nd one for Diif and last one for % change... But you had accommodated all in single table using Pick function and dim data island for 3 blocks


Kudos,

Sunny

That was my mistake of removing the sort on text

RangeSum(Only({1} Dim), QtrSort/1e10)".. what does this do?

Best way to see it would be to add it as an expression and see what you get... whatever you get... I am sorting that in the ascending order

Sequence is fixed with the selection of Text sort.. Any light on conditional formatting for the diff, % change blocks (bold or Text color for negative values)
