## Set Analysis

I have the below function which calculate the number of days till yesterday for the selections made in the filter for Year and month.

If there are no selections; it gives the number of days till yesterday during this month. For example today is 19th of october then this function will give 18. (the first line).

Where there is a selection; let say year 2017; it will give the number of days during the year till yesterday. and viceversa. (second line).

We have upgraded our system from 3.1 to september 2017 (b/c of some bugs to cover). Now the below function is giving '0' for all selections. please help to rectify.

If(getselectedcount([Year])<1 and getselectedcount([Month Year])<1,

Count({\$<[Date] = {"<=\$(=Today()-1)"},[Year]=,[Month Year]=,[MonthID]= {"\$(=((Year(Today()) -1)*12) + Num(Month(Today())))"}>} [Date])

,

Count({\$<[Date] = {"<=\$(=Today()-1)"}>} [Date])

)

## Re: Set Analysis

Probably the Date field format has been messed up with the upgrade. What's the Date field format?

Date is collected from the QVD file by the following:

Floor(SOH_DATE) as [Date],

## Re: Set Analysis

Try to change it to Date(Floor(SOH_DATE) as Date.

The floor function delivers an integer (for example 41382).

Or maybe

## Re: Set Analysis

your expression was working for month selection too?

may be this

If(getselectedcount([Year])<1 and getselectedcount([Month Year])<1 or  count(p(Month))=1, Today() - MonthStart(Today())-1,Today() - YearStart(Makedate(min(Year)))-1)
