Set Identifire

Hi Guys,

please help, what does the below statement mean :

if(DAY<DAY(Today()),rangesum (above((sum({$<Year = {$(=max(Year))},StrikeReturnPartial= {Strike}, Month = {"<=$(=max({<Year={$(=max(Year))}>} Month))>$(=max({<Year={$(=max(Year))}>} Month)-1)"}>}

Many thanks,

Treasure Dlamini

Re: Set Identifire

Expression seems to be accumulating Amount for days up-until the Today()'s day for each month

Re: Set Identifire

Taken out of context, this is damn difficult to explain. The expression refers to at most 31 previous cells in a chart/table so Sunny is probably right. Also, in each separate month, it will not pass the current day number, so its a "DayToDate" accumulation, if you can call it that way.

Can you post a screenshot with the chart dimensions?

Entering an expression like this in the expression editor and adding whitespace makes it a lot more readable. Like so:

if (DAY < Day(Today()), // Only for daynumbers smaller than today's day number



                   sum({$<Year={$(=max(Year))}, // max selected year, max month in that year





                   0, 31) // Go back max 31 days

            ) * -1, // Invert

    '' // Display nothing for days >= today's day number


AFAIK it may do weird things in January.
