Guys I have date data,Need to find difference between two selection date .
Ex: 1/1/2015 till 1/12/2015
Need to find Sales between,if date 1/1/2015 to 1/5/2015 range sales.Without using set analysis.
I upload excel data.
Please let me know what exactly you want to do.
Firstly, I see the raw data has different Date formats. Please use the below expression to correct this.
Date(alt(Date(Date),MakeDate(SubField(Date,'/',3),SubField(Date,'/',2),SubField(Date,'/',1)))) as Date
I have just given simple date excel sheet, which contain Date 1/1/2015 to 9/7/2017.
My question is, If i select date between 1/1/2015 till 1/5/2015, So date will show sales of between these date range.
Condition: Using maxdate and mindate function (Variable)
I hope explain it clear.
If you convert the dates to the correct format, and add these into a listbox you will get the desired result by just selecting the relevant dates, and creating an expression SUM(Sales)
Does this answer your question? If you want Max and Min Dates you will have to do the changes in the script.
Copy the below Script:
LOAD Country, Date(alt(Date(Date),MakeDate(SubField(Date,'/',3),SubField(Date,'/',2),SubField(Date,'/',1)))) as Date, Sales
FROM [..\..\Date sample.xls] (biff, embedded labels, table is Sheet1$);
Just change your path.
And on the frontend , add Country and Date in Listboxes and make your selections.
Hope this helps. Please mark as helpful or correct if it works for you.
