Last Quarter

Hi all,

I'm trying to count how many units were sold last quarter. For this quarter I can do the below and it gives the correct figures.

sum({<UNIT.SOLD_DATE = {">=$(=date(quarterstart(today())))  <=$(=date(quarterend(today())))"}, >} UNIT.TOTALSOLD)

In my head I should be able to do the following,

sum({<UNIT.SOLD_DATE = {">=$(=date(quarterstart(today())))-1  <=$(=date(quarterend(today())))-1"}, >} UNIT.TOTALSOLD)


But this doesn't work, has anyone got any ideas as it seems quite simple?


Thanks


Gareth

Remove Comma in last, try this:


sum({<UNIT.SOLD_DATE = {'>=$(=date(quarterstart(today())))-1  <=$(=date(quarterend(today())))-1'} >} UNIT.TOTALSOLD)


Also make sure UNIT.SOLD_DATE, have same format as Today(), if format of both the date mismatch, it wud not give you anything
