## Calculate 1 year when only 1 month is selected

Hi Guys,

Please let me explain my problem brielfly:

This is my data for 2 years:

2011:

 Group Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec A 100 110 120 130 140 150 160 170 180 190 200 210 B 150 160 170 180 190 200 210 220 230 240 250 260 C 200 210 220 230 240 250 260 270 280 290 300 310

2012:

 Group Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec A 80 90 100 110 120 130 140 150 160 170 180 190 B 130 140 150 160 170 180 190 200 210 220 230 240 C 180 190 200 210 220 230 240 250 260 270 280 290

Formula:

Sales Ratio = Sum Sales this month divided by Sum Sales of the whole year

(ex. If user selects Aug-2012,then Sum (Sales for Aug 2012) divided by Sum (Sales from Aug 2011 to Aug 2012).

Catch:

User wants only to select Aug 2012 in the listbox. Now the user wants to see the result of Sales Ratio. The answer should be: 0.080213903

Question:

What will my expression look like?

## Re: Calculate 1 year when only 1 month is selected

you can create two variables

1. first variable will contain the selected date

2. second variable will contain the date of last year

then compare these two variable in your set analysis.

It is better if you post a sample app...
