Set Analysis last year calculation syntax

Hi i have the following expression in my Qv Doc.

=num(sum({$<FY = {$(=max(FY))}, Year=,Quarter=, YearMonth = {"<=$(=max(YearMonth))"},Month= >} Nettobelopp), '$#,##0;($#,##0)')

i would like to find the values  - 1 year to measure against.

my syntax however seems wrong,

any help is greatly appreciated.

=num(sum({$<FY = {$(=max(FY)-1)}, Year=,Quarter=, YearMonth = {"<=$(=max(YearMonth))"},Month= >} Nettobelopp), '$#,##0;($#,##0)')

Re: Set Analysis last year calculation syntax

You can also try this with the month number,

=sum({$<Year=, Year={$(=max(Year)-1)},MonthNumber={$(=max(MonthNumber))}>}Nettobelopp)

Re: Set Analysis last year calculation syntax

Hi,

The calculation for the FY is OK, the problem is that you are also calculating the YearMonth.  You will need to perform a calculcation that returns the correct YearMonth that you want for last year.

Try this,

Last Year:

Num(Sum({<FY = {"$(=Max(FY)-1)"}, Quarter=,Year=, Month= >} Nettobelopp) , '$#,##0;($#,##0)')

Last Year Month i.e  July-2012

=Sum({<Year=, MonthYear=, Month=, Quarter=, CalDate={'>=$(=MonthStart(Max(CalDate), -12))<=$(=MonthEnd(Max(CalDate), -12))'}>} Nettobelopp)
