how to get first nth date in pivot table?

HI ALL,

How I'll get the first nth date in Pivot table.

For example I have below sample date:

Date                    Sales

01-01-2014          100

02-01-2014          101

03-01-2014          100  

04-01-2014          100 

---------------          ------    and so on.

Now I want to display only first 3 date and their respective sales in pivot table.

Please help on this.

Thanks in advance

You can use the following as a calculated dimension (also see attached example.qvw):

=aggr(if(rank(Date)-count(total distinct Date)>-3,Date),Date)

I would say that you need to use a Set Analysis:

sum ({<Date = {"< xxxx"}> } Sales)

or if the date is related to a key

sum({<Date_Key ={" <= 3 "}> } Sales)
