## WeekName

Hi

my Aim is to get this type of format where the week starts from week-1, This week, week+1, week+2 etc

Now I have No date in my data but only week and Year.

I need to add new Expressions in the chart above where I have to define according to Week-1 and week

I tried to create two Variables for two weeks(This week and Lastweek) like this

Let vCurWeek = WeekName(Today());
Let vLastWeek = WeekName(Today()-7);

The output is

vCurWeek= 2011/15 shows correct but gives a number when Defined in a textbox

vLastWeek=2011/14 shows also correct and gives a number when Defined in a textbox

My idea was to change the present YYYYWW[Year week] from above chart to YYYY/WW and based on the variable to change the Chart. The chart must change everyweek dynamically.

Any ideas how to achive it?

Regards

Hi sravan,

as you know: "Ein Bild sagt mehr als tausend Worte" or: Example-data is always better then the best description.

I was able to solve first and third topic with formulas as mentioned in my post above. See var. \$(vCurWeek) and dim. Week_RK. But second topic is excel, Summing up from different cells. QV works very fine with tables, rows, but not with single cells. As a hint, you can try to use SET Analysis and \$(vCurWeek) in your expressions to solve it.

Hi Sravan,

If my understanding is correct then it ll work.

u have year, then use (Year * 100) + WeekNo

ex : year = 2011, week = 12 then (2011 * 100) + 12 it gives 201112

HI sathish,

Thanks for ur answer. I think I am not clear. For Defining further expressions with previous week , present week etc, I need Dynamic interpretation of weeks( For Ex week-1, week, week+1)

I am trying to achieve this. Those weeks are already present in my Data. As I said Year and week are present in the data.

Hi sravan,

`sravan wrote:My idea was to change the present YYYYWW[Year week] from above chart to YYYY/WW`

I would prefer the other way round, like

`Replace(WeekName(Today()), '/', '')`
gives 201115 as result. For my oppinion very well to calculate with eg. the previous Week would be Replace(WeekName(Today()), '/', '') -1

`sravan wrote:The chart must change everyweek dynamically.`

Same as above, use this expression within a calculated dimension very dynamically like

`IF( [Year week] >=Replace(WeekName(Today()), '/', '') , [Year week])`

Hi Roland,

Das ist wahr! "Ein Bild sagt mehr als tausend worte"

Thankyou verymuch. I am trying with Setanalysis to solve the second Problem.

I wonder, I am the only one getting such tasks with Single Cells. Ya with Qlikview it is difficult to solve Single cells but I will give a try here.

Wish me Luck!

Vielen Dank

HI roland,

setanalysis is not my cup of tea and as you said single cells tasks are difficult in Qlikview

I am struggling with this and opened another thread for that problem here
