Alternative for above function

Hi Team,

Please find the sample data as an attachment.

In this example: I am using one dimension and two expression. I am using two dimension as drill down (Quarter and YearMonth) and One expression([OIT-Revenue]) is Calculated in back end and another expression(Backlog), I am calculating on front end using above and below function.

Requirement: I want if I click on Quarter then it will show me the monthly data but because I am using Above and Below function my second expression(Backlog) is not working. I know this can be achieved by back end calculation for second expression but I don't want to use back end calculation. So is it possible to achieve desired output through front end calculation only.

This part of your expression is strange...


You are comparing strings using >? 2018Q2 is not a number, but a text and same is true for Quarter field... you can check for equal when it comes to strings, but not > or <.... it is better to create a new QuarterYear field which has an underlying Numerical Value... for instance using QuarterStart(Date) as QuarterYear..

I think you need to get that straight and then provide info on what exactly is the expected output with and without selections
