## highleting the background color is not working when i change the formula

Hi

I have a scenario

i need to highlet background colur based on year

For example

12

means in 12 months one max and one min vlaue i need to highlet

24

means  i need to highlet 2 min and 2 max values

like that  36 also

i.e. for every 12 months i need to highlet  one min and one max value

12 months   --- 1 min and 1 max

24 months   -- 2 min and 2 max

36 months   --  2 min and 2 max

here attahced qvw file is having the code it's working for

growth=(sales-prev_sales)/Prev_sales

when i change the formula

growth= sales-Prev_sales  it is not working you can see growth_test bacjkgorun formlua

## Re: highleting the background color is not working when i change the formula

Hi Sunny,

I got the solution.

Problem is the listing the months

based on the our code

0 to 12

12 to 24

24 to 36

so if a negative value present in 12 or 24 it is repeating,so i given

0 to 12

13 to 24

25 to 36

so that it will be unique

,lightGreen(),

,lightRed())

so if we chnage>= to >

then it will work

Thanks Sunny.

## Re: highleting the background color is not working when i change the formula

Hi Thiru,

Try like this:

if(Match(vInput,12),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)=vKC,lightred(),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)=1,LightGreen())))

VKC= =max({<Date=>}aggr(rank(Sum({<Date=>}Sales)-Sum({<Date=>}Prev_Sales)),Date))

For 24 and 36 months make rank >2 and create a new variable vKC 2 = vKC-1 and use them.

Also pfa;

Here you go:

pick(Match(vInput,12,24,36),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)=vKC,lightred(),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)=1,LightGreen())),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)<=2,lightgreen(),

if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)>=vKC-1,lightred())),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)<=2,lightgreen(),

if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)>=vKC-1,lightred())))

## Re: highleting the background color is not working when i change the formula

Hi Jyothish,

I guess you are not clear with the requirement.

Requirement is i need to high let back ground of min and max values yearly i.e. 12 months.

If i given in put  as 12

means from latest month to last 12 months

highlet min and max values

If i given in put  as 24(which is l2 years)

means from latest month to last 12 months

highlet min and max values

and

highlet 12 th month to 24 month

max and min values

SO total 2 min and 2 max values

same for 36 3 min and 3 max values

Please check Growth column background color while giving input 12,24 and 36

Thanks

Hi Thiru,

I believe it is working as you are expecting. Only for 36 month you need to make changes like this:

pick(Match(vInput,12,24,36),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)=vKC,lightred(),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)=1,LightGreen())),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)<=2,lightgreen(),

if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)>=vKC-1,lightred())),if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)<=3,lightgreen(),

if(Aggr(rank(Sum(Sales)-Sum(Prev_Sales)),Date)>=vKC-2,lightred())))

Hi Sunny,

I have chnaged the formula

sum(sales)-sum(prev_sales)

Thanks

## Re: highleting the background color is not working when i change the formula

For the color you changed the expression? How does it matter if you use

(sum(sales)-sum(Prev_sales))/sum(Prev_sales)

or

sum(sales)-sum(prev_sales)

for color? I mean won't they be in generally the same direction?

Which expression am I looking at? Growth or Growth_test?

## Re: highleting the background color is not working when i change the formula

Hi sunny,

Growth is what you provided and which is working fine with

(sum(sales)-sum(Prev_sales))/sum(Prev_sales)

And Growth_test i have changed the formula to

sum(sales)-sum(prev_sales)

Which is not working.

Please modify the Growth_test background formaula
