YTD Calculation in qlikview


I need to calculate YTD of count(<measure>) in qlikview.

In my fact table, I have a date key (1, 2, 3, ...........) and in Dim_Date table there are corresponding dates for date key.

My requirement is such that, when user selects perticular date from list box of date, my chart should show YTD of count(<measure>) upto that date.

Thanks in advance.

Rohit - I recommend you to use the master the calendar to generate the time dimension. Please look at the attached script which covers most of the options in Time Dimension. Hope this helps!
