Rolling YearMonth does not work in Chart




For those of you who don’t know about rolling month plz read this guide instead: https://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-4252#start=50



This rolling expression works in a textbox for the current month, but not in a chart, because it cannot split it out on each dimension/month:


             ((Count({$<CalendarSource={'2'},YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5)"}, Field1={‘test’}, Field2= {'F2A'}>} total DISTINCT [Count Field])
Count({$<CalendarSource={'2'},YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5"}, Field1 ={‘test’} ,Field2= {'F2A','F2B','F2C'}>} total DISTINCT [Count Field]))


                                      ((Count({$<CalendarSource={'2'},YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5)"},Field1={‘test’}, CustomerCategory = {'F2C'}>} total DISTINCT [Count Field])
Count({$<CalendarSource={‘2’,YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5)"},Type={‘test’}, CustomerCategory = {'F2A','F2B','F2C'}>} total DISTINCT [Count Field]))



For the textbox I don’t even need the total, but I need it for the line chart (actually a combo). With nothing selected I get a straight line for all dimensions, but the number is only the same correct number for the current month as in the texbox. If I select YearMonth I only get this current selected, but with other expressions in the chart I geta full straight line and then only at the last selected/max month it rises to the correct number:



It should of cause change for each month with the selected as max/end month.


So I tried this Expression instead:


(Edit: I solved it, of course I need to use the full set all the places). 


Round(Sum({<CalendarSource={'2'},YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5)"}>} Aggr(
Above( //Calculation1
Count({$<CalendarSource={'2'},YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5)"}, Field1={‘test’}, Field2= {'F2A'}>}  DISTINCT [Count Field])
Count({$<CalendarSource={'2'},YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5)"}, Field1 ={‘test’} ,Field2= {'F2A','F2B','F2C'}>}  DISTINCT [Count Field]))                 *100)
                 ((Count({$<CalendarSource={'2'},YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5)"}, Field1={‘test’}, CustomerCategory = {'F2C'}>} DISTINCT [Count Field])                /
Count({$<CalendarSource={'2'},YearMonth,Year,Month,Quarter,MonthSerial={"<=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-0)>=$(=Max(MonthSerial)-5)"}, Type={‘test’}, CustomerCategory = {'F2A','F2B','F2C'}>} DISTINCT [Count Field]))



Like this I get different results for each month, but not the correct ones, though for the selcted/current/max month I get approximately the same, but not good enough.


If I add the TOTAL before DISTINCT, again I get the correct number for the selected/max month, but with the exact same problem as with the first expression, so it did not get me further.


Any ideas plz?

It would be more helpful to see the application where it is getting used instead of just looking at the expressions. Would it be possible for you to share a sample with expected output? I understand creating a sample can be a hassle at time, but I think it would be easier and quicker to get a solution that ways.

Sorry, but the application is confidential and kind of complicated, so it will take some time to make a dummy application, but if it is the only way, it might come in some days, but I would hope for an answer before that.
