## Max value per Cyclic Group

I want to show the stock figures in a line chart.

My dimension is a cyclic group with some calendar dimeniosn like, Year, Quarter, Month, Week, Date.

Within the ERP system everyday it will count the current stock per item and stores the current stock per item in a different table.

I'm using that table in QlikView.

I cannot sum the values because the total stock per item is per day.

So what I thought to do is to retrieve the max value per shown dimension from the Cyclic Group.

Can anybody help me how to retrieve the max value per dimension in my Cyclic Group (Year, Quarter, Month, Week, Date)

I thought it was easy and tried the below expression, but apparently for me it isn't that easy.

Aggr(Sum({<DateNo = {\$(=Max(DateNo))}>} StockQuantity), [\$(=GetCurrentField([Date-Dimensions]))]))

## Re: Max value per Cyclic Group

If possible try to add flag fields in the script for this. Something like:

Date,

Item,

StockQuantity,

if(floor(Date)=floor(YearEnd(Date)),1,0) as IsYearEnd,

if(floor(Date)=floor(QuarterEnd(Date)),1,0) as IsQuarterEnd,

if(floor(Date)=floor(MontEnd(Date)),1,0) as IsMontEnd,

if(floor(Date)=floor(WeekEnd(Date)),1,0) as IsWeekEnd

FROM ....

You can create five simple expression like sum({<IsWeekEnd={1}>}StockQuantity). Use conditional expressions to show/hide these expressions as needed based on the current field from the cyclic group.

I realize the above may not be possible. For example if you don't have stock records for each day for the items. In that case perhaps you can use something like sum(aggr(firstsortedvalue(StockQuantity, -Date),StockItem, [\$(=GetCurrentField([Date-Dimensions]))]))

talk is cheap, supply exceeds demand

## Re: Max value per Cyclic Group

you had a couple of extra brackets here in there, try with this one  \$(='['&GetCurrentField([Date-Dimensions])&']')

Hi Ramon,

Unfortunately (for me) your suggestion didn't work.

what values do you get when you add the expression I have you to listbox ?

## Re: Max value per Cyclic Group

Hi,

Sorry for my late reply. I was traveling and very busy.

When I re-read my post I saw that my question is a bit confusing.

Sorry for that.

What I'm searching for is that if the Cyclic Group is showing Year-week I want the value for the last date of that week (per visible year-week).

If the Cyclic Group is showing Year-month I want the value for the last date of that month (per visible year-month).

## Re: Max value per Cyclic Group

haven't tested this yet, but it seems as you want something like this

Sum({<DateNo p= ({<DateNo = {"\$(=Max( total <GetCurrentField([Date-Dimensions])>DateNo))"}>})>} StockQuantity)
