Sorting Dates in Chart

hi

i want to sort the months (without year specification) in the order of the month_id (which refers to a corresponding "month_year" field)

i have attached the test app

I have Chart 1 and Chart 2. Chart 1 is sorted according to %month_id. I want as final result the Chart 2, which is a difference of values of current month minus a previous set of months. I want the value difference expressed as a month without specifying the year, but this shall be sorted (as showed in Chart 2).

In Chart 2, instead of displaying Sep.2014, it shall be displayed only " Sep ".

Calculation: "Value of Sep.2014 (84) -  Value of Sep.2013 (83) " is showed as the "difference" which shall be displayed in Chart 2, but sorted as Sep.2014. The final value is " -1 ". The next value is the difference between Aug.2014 and Aug.2013 displayed as "Aug" and so on.

Thanks for any help on this

Here the test Table:

table_tmp:
load * inline [
month_id,%month_id,month_year_text,month_text,TY,LY,Diff
41883,81,Sep.2014,Sep,84,0,84

Re: Sorting Dates in Chart

Hi Felipe, you can sort using this expression:

If(Month(Min(month_year_date))>=10, Month(Min(month_year_date))-12, Month(Min(month_year_date)))

Re: Sorting Dates in Chart

Try sorting by Load Order Reversed or by expression =max({1}%month_id)

Re: Sorting Dates in Chart

thanks, no, it did not work

i adjusted the test application, to reflect better the real app

Chart 2, under the given conditions, cannot be sorted with expressions or load order

see the attached app !

Re: Sorting Dates in Chart

Hi Felipe, I don't understand what isn't working, I tested both options proposed by gysbert and mine.

If I select May.14 with the three options it shows months from Dez to Mai. Wich result you expect?

Re: Sorting Dates in Chart

hi

i expect the Dimension "month" sorted from, say apr,march,feb,jan,dec,nov,oct,,etc. in that sequence.

Ex. if i select in the app

prev_month = 6

month_year_text = Mar.2014

i get this, when i have to get Mrz,Feb,Jan,Dez,etc.

Re: Sorting Dates in Chart

If you load the data a little differently, this becomes quite simple:

table_tmp:

LOAD Date(month_id, 'MMM.YYYY') As DateMY,

Month(month_id) As Month,

  %month_id,

  TY,

  LY,

  Diff

inline

[

month_id,%month_id,month_year_text,month_text,TY,LY,Diff

41883,81,Sep.2014,Sep,84,0,84

41852,80,Aug.2014,Aug,112,0,112

41821,79,Jul.2014,Jul,148,0,148

...

Now DateMY is a dual field which you can sort numerically. The other two date fields are redundant as all the information is in DateMY and %month_id.
