Hi,

I need to create a graph with candlestick, I try using example but dont work.

For example I have the following data:

DateInvoice NumberAverage Price
14/01/201411.70
14/01/201421,55
28/01/201432.50
05/02/201442.25
18/02/201483.10
15/04/2015202.85
18/04/2015223.00
05/05/2015322,78
07/05/2015722,83

I need to have i the diagram one candle every MonthYear and the candle have:

- the higher candle's shadow limit is the higer Average Price of the MonthYear (for example jan 2014 = 2,50);

- the higher limit of the body of candle is the last Average Price, if the last Average Price is higher of the first Average Price of the

MonthYear, or the first Average Price, if  if the last Average is lower of the first Average Price of the MonthYear;

- the lower limit of the body of candle is the first Average Price, if the first Average Price is lower of the last Average Price of the

MonthYear, or the last Average Price, if the first Average Price is higher of the last Average Price of the MonthYear;

- the lower candle's shadow limit is the lower Average Price of the MonthYear (for example jan 2014 = 1,55);

- the candle's color is green when if the last Average Price is higer of the First average price, red if the last average price is lower of the

first average price.

Pleaee anyone have any idea?

Thank you very much.

Best regards.

Here's a modification to your sample to get you started. It needs a few tweaks to match all your rules, but at least it's displaying now. I corrected a few problems in the sample you uploaded.

1.The script DecimalSep was set to ',' (comma) but your sample data used fullstop. So the Average price was not being read as a number,

2.The calculated dimension to create MM/YYYY was incorrect. II made the value in the script instead.

3. Your chart expressions had errors. I recommend you always look at each expression in the expression editor to see the message "Error(s) in expression" or "Expression OK".

4. I used the FirstSortedValue() function in my solution with DISTINCT. Unfortunately, the syntax check flags DISTINCT as an error, even though it's not. You won't be the first user frustrated by the errors in the syntax checker.

Can you post a qvw showing what you've done already? It might be easier to work on what you've done rather than start from scratch.
