Using different periodic dates?

Hi all, I am new to qlikview and really enjoying it.

I am just stuck on logically how to work with data for different dates.

Basically i have set up a report that displays all data on a portfolio as of the end of the previous month. The viewer can then choose which month they would like to see (list box - "only one selected value"). This is very basic and works fine. Now i want to create a tab that shows trending of the data over the previous months. How can i do this without changing the "only one selected value" on the list box etc, as this effects all the previous tabs?

As a stop gap, in the load, i reloaded the same dataset for periodic dates separately but gave all the fields different names so it didnt interfere with the other data. I am just wondering is there an easier way to do this as i am basically loading the information for each date separately which is very wasteful and confusing, considering the dataset is the same for each month. Hope this makes sense?

Welcome to QV world. Have you explored using Set Analysis? I am sure this is possible with Set Analysis. I am attaching a pdf document to learn Set Analysis. Please post your QV document with sample data and I would definetly try to help you.
