Month Year Selection

Hi,
You can always try e.g. Sum(If(YearName(MonthYear)=2011, xxx), or split MonthYear in the script to Month(MonthYear) as Month and Year(MonthYear) as Year...

Re: Month Year Selection

Hi Anand,

You can use the set analysis to select the range you want.

For Example,

if your expression is  sum(FieldName1)/count(FieldName2)

you can use

sum( {<[Year Month]={">=Jan 2011 <=June 2011"}>} Fieldname1)/

     count({<[Year Month]={">=Jan 2011 <=June 2011"}>}Fieldname2)

where [Year Month] is your Month Year field.

Hope this helps.

Month Year Selection

Abhinava, are you sure that you can compare dates like this way? The " in Set analisys shows that the comparison is textual or numeric, not dates.

Anardjs, i cant understand if you want to do this in a Graph or in the script. What you mean "I want to select"? Selection are available in List boxes, for example. Anyway, i will give my opinion for both:

1) In a graph:

For example, if you want to see the sales between Jan-2011 and Jun-2011, without take care about time selections.

If you created the MY field from MonthName(Date) function, this field will get both values: numeric date, and text date. You must use $ function to get the numeric value of the data limitation:

Sum({<MonthYearField={">=$(=MakeDate(2011, 01, 1)) <$(=MakeDate(2011, 06, 01))"}>} Sales)

2) In script:

If you want to put a flag on the registers that, in MonthYearField, are in the same interval, try:

Left Join (Dates)

Load

     MonthYearField,

     'Yes'                    as Flag

Resident Dates

Where     MonthYearField >= MakeDate(2011, 01, 01)

     and    Month YearField < MakeDate (2011, 06, 01);

Please, let me know if It was useful for you.

Re: Month Year Selection

first its best you format the dates   then you could use something like this

Aggr(only({<[Date] ={">=$(=Monthstart(Jan 11,0))<=$(=Monthend(May 11,0))"}>} [Date]),[Date])
