Hi Venkat

Probably the best way would be to do it on database level. Which DBMS are you using? Please post your load statement

Are you looking for the last 10 weeks (i.e. 70days) or the 10 weeks from last Sunday?

But you can use today() functionality against your dates and/or weeks in your load script.  For example;



From [FILE]

where today()>= [yourdate] and today()<=[yourdate];

How does this help?  Let me know how you get on.

Sorry - slight amendment to what I wrote above;



From [FILE]

where [yourdate] + 70 >= today();

Re: Need your help in script

Something like this:

LET vStart = num(today())-70;

SQL select * from mysource

where MyDate > $(vStart) ;

You may need to format the start date parameter value to the date format your database expects.

Try this:


LET vMaxDate = Num('31/12/2013');
LET  vMinDate = Num('01/01/2013');

               $(vMinDate) + RowNo() - 1 As Date,
               Date($(vMinDate) + RowNo() - 1) As FormalDate,

     AutoGenerate ($(vMaxDate) - $(vMinDate) + 1);




Resident tCal
Where Date >= ($(vMaxDate) - (10*7) + 1);

DROP Table tCal;
