Hi Vishn,

I don't know what type of chart you are using. However, if you use STRAIGHT chart. And the Year in LIST BOX

I have this example

YearCustomerUnit Purchase

So if I select 2009 (in List Box) you want to see customer in 2010,2011 excluding 2009 (which is the current selection)

My expression is, right click on th chart > expression > paste this SET ANALYSIS into the EDIT EXPRESSION BOX

sum( {$<Year = {$(=Only(Year)+1)}>}[Unit Purchase]) Click OK

Then for the 2nd year ADD (still at the expression)

and paste expression

sum( {$<Year = {$(=Only(Year)+2)}>}[Unit Purchase])

Click OK

With this, if you select 2010 in the list box customer for 2011 & 2012 will displayed, excluding current year selection.

Hope this help

Re: Year

Hey I am also working on this.

Gabriel I think you got the problem in wrong sense. I have to show the customers who were with me in 2009 but not in 2010 & 2011 but are regained in 2012.

I can sort out the customers which are in 2009 & 2012 by using the calculated dimension as =if(wildmatch(year,'2009',2010'),customername)

But here i also got the customers of 2012 which are new. Now how i should leave the new customers which were not in 2009 from 2012 customers.

Hope it explains you more

Re: Year


You probably have a field that states if the customer is new or old, or a date when the customer became a customer? If so, can't you just include it in the expression?
