Re: Last Month Label & Error Message


For an error message you can use an if statement like:

if(GetSelectedCount([Year Month]) >= 1, expression, 'Please select Year and Month to View this report")

And for labels you can use in the window title =max(Month) & ‘ ‘ & max(Year)

And if you want previous month or previous year you add -1 =(max(Month)-1) & ‘ ‘ & (max(Year)-1)

can u help?

Without selecting Year or Month, the chart did not display data...

and this is the expression

sum({$<Year = {$(=max(Year))}, MonthNum = {$(=max(MonthNum))}>}[Gross Purchase])

I already tried using Month = maxString(Month)

but still does not display... why? im using qlikview 11...

Can you send the .qvw? Or an example of what your data looks like? The set analysis looks correct.

When I have encountered that problem before the problem have been that my data have had more dates than I had data for. Example:

Year     Month     Sales

2012     1            20

2012     2            30

2012     3            40

2012     4       

2012     5

So the max date is May 2012 in the data, but since there's no sales for that month, it won't display any data.

What does the lable say for the max(month)?
