## Rolling and ytd calculation

Hello,

I need to find rolling and YTD revenue. rolling month starts from september and ends on august. I have two years of data sep-2019 to aug-2018. i have a text object where current year and last revenue will be displayed. so, when i select rolling in the filter, in the text object revenue should displayed as currrent year rolling revenue and last year rolling revenue.

when i'm using the below code to get revenue, the current year revenue is coming up to be zero and last year revenue is getting switched with current year revenue. Attaching the screenshot of the dashboard for your reference.

='Current Year:'& Num(Sum({<[week] = {">=\$(=MakeDate(Year(Today()),9,1) )<=\$(=MakeDate(Year(Today())+1,8,30) )"}> } NET_SLS_AMT/1000000),'##.00')
& ' Last Year:'&Num(Sum({<[week] = {">=\$(=MakeDate(Year(Today())-1,9,1) )<=\$(=MakeDate(Year(Today()),8,30) )"}> } NET_SLS_AMT/1000000),'##.00')

## Re: Rolling and ytd calculation

your syntax for current year results in week >= 1.9.2019 <=31.8.2020
for last Year results in week>=1.9.2018<=31.8.2019

is that what you want? your current year starts sept 2019 and end aug 2020?
If yes: what format is week?

Does your next textobject retail quantity show correct numbers? If yes, copy that expression and adapt it to your revenue

## Re: Rolling and ytd calculation

so change to

='Current Year:'& Num(Sum({<[week] = {">=\$(=MakeDate(Year(Today()-1),9,1) )<=\$(=MakeDate(Year(Today()),8,30) )"}> } NET_SLS_AMT/1000000),'##.00')
& ' Last Year:'&Num(Sum({<[week] = {">=\$(=MakeDate(Year(Today())-2,9,1) )<=\$(=MakeDate(Year(Today()-1),8,30) )"}> } NET_SLS_AMT/1000000),'##.00')

Hey,

With the above formula, rolling current year and rolling last year values are coming out to be same.
