Hi,

Sorry I cannot share qvw, but have a look on my exp. Reason why direct date is not working with set analysis because your time is different for same dates. We need to use Floor() for the same.

Script : 

LOAD EMP_NM, 
     MANHRS, 
     //APPROVEDDATE as appDates
     Floor(APPROVEDDATE) as appDates
FROM
[C:\Users\KT3028\Downloads\timesheet.xls]
(biff, embedded labels, table is [Sheet 1$]);

Variables : 

vDateFrom = appDates
vDateTo = appDates

Now use this expression with dimension EMP_NM,

= sum({<appDates = {">=$(=vDateFrom)<=$(=vDateTo)"}>}MANHRS)

Perhaps this
Sum({<[EMP_NM]= {'ABC','XYZ'},APPROVEDDATE = {">=$(=Date($(v_DateFrom)))<=$(=($(v_DateTo)))"}>}MANHRS)
Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

Hi @limfungkeat,

=Sum({<APPROVEDDATE  ={">=$(=v_DateFrom)<=$(=v_DateTo)"},[EMP_NM]={ 'ABC','XYZ'}>} MANHRS)

Try this, it should work. And in variable itself make it Date(v_DateFrom) rather in set analysis.

It is working in my case, try it

=sum({<vDate = {">=$(=vDateFrom)<=$(=vDateTo)"},EMP_NM={'A','B'}>}MANHRS)

It is creating issue in set analysis because of APPROVEDDATE date format, I changed it then also it wasn't working.

It works in simple exp like =sum(if(APPROVEDDATE>=vDateFrom and appDates<=vDateTo,MANHRS)) but not in set analysis.

So create vDate variable for APPROVEDDATE - vDate =date(APPROVEDDATE)

Regards,

Shubham

Hi Shubham - thank you so much for proactively help to resolve my problem , refer the above data set , by using the below exp from you (where i have created the variable vDate =date(APPROVEDDATE) )

=sum({<vDate = {">=$(=vDateFrom)<=$(=vDateTo)"},EMP_NM={'A'}>}MANHRS)

so, when i select the date from the calendar object - say 1/3/2018 - 31/3/2018 , i am expecting my pivot table to show

only 20 manhrs , instead of  36 manhrs ...

HI Limfungkeat,

If you mention EMP='A' then it doesn't work. If you want to  show this in table according to EMP name then it will work, I have changed some values in data and look at the result in table.

Now according to above data and if I select date from - 01-03-2019 to 02-03-2019, then it should show 20.

Check and let me know.
