hi guys need help on this. im new in ste analysis maybe you can give pointers on my prob
i have this QVchart with year and month dimension, i nneed to compute the growth percentage in comparing the value of each month for this year and previous year.
see image below
You dont need to use set analysis.
If you have that chart already all you need to do is create this expression as well.
(2013 - 2012)
and show in percentage.
This can't be achieved using Set Analysis i believe. Because, set analysis works once for an object, i.e, it would not produce different results based on your dimension values. You have to work in the script; use some sort of As-of-Date concept or a linkage table. PFA, it might give you an idea.
Update: This link would be helpful. Look at the attachment by milda113.
base on my experience you can develop a simple to a little advance qvw apps.. but there are so man details to take in consideration when you are working alone.
im using qv in 2 years now and what im lacking for is the GUI deign aspect and some few data model expertise. but if your apps is more on aggregation and as reporting tool, QV is the most effective reporting tool for me..
i hooked up to the ff data source:
xls and flat files like txt file and csv file
