Re: Distinct count of customers in last 3 months

Try this script:

Table:

LOAD *,

  MonthName(Date) as MonthYear

INLINE [

    Date, CustomerID

    12/15/2014, 1

    12/13/2014, 2

    12/1/2014, 2

    12/12/2014, 4

    1/11/2015, 1

    1/15/2015, 3

    1/1/2015, 4

    2/14/2015, 5

    2/17/2015, 3

    2/16/2015, 1

    2/1/2015, 2

    3/17/2015, 5

    3/21/2015, 1

    3/14/2015, 3

    3/11/2015, 4

];

FinalTable:

LOAD *,

If(AddMonths(Previous(Previous(MonthYear)), 2) = MonthYear and AddMonths(Previous(MonthYear), 1) = MonthYear and

    CustomerID = Previous(Previous(CustomerID)) and CustomerID = Previous(CustomerID), 1, 0) as Flag;

LOAD DISTINCT

  MonthYear,

  CustomerID

Resident Table

Order By CustomerID, MonthYear;

On the front end create a straight table with MonthYear as dimension and Sum(Flag) as Expression

Re: Distinct count of customers in last 3 months

Do you need a front end solution or can a little back end scripting to create flags can be done here?

Re: Distinct count of customers in last 3 months

‌I am ok with either solution. Front end or back end, whichever gets me the correct solution. Thanks!

Re: Distinct count of customers in last 3 months

Thanks Sunny, Appreciate the help,

I have a similar problem, would you be able to help me alter the answer to only count last 3 months not including this month. For example:

Table:

LOAD *,

  MonthName(Date) as MonthYear

INLINE [

    Date, CustomerID

    11/5/2014,3

    11/25/2014,2

    11/7/2014,1

    11/30/2014,4

    12/15/2014, 1

    12/13/2014, 2

    12/1/2014, 2

    12/12/2014, 4

    1/11/2015, 1

    1/15/2015, 3

    1/1/2015, 4

    2/14/2015, 5

    2/17/2015, 3

    2/16/2015, 1

    2/1/2015, 2

    3/17/2015, 5

    3/21/2015, 1

    3/14/2015, 3

    3/11/2015, 4

    4/5/2015,2

    4/15/2015,5

    4/1/2015,1

    4/28/2015,3

];
