Just wanted to share something I created recently for a project in QlikView 11. I need to store in Variables the current Year and Month. For comparison purposes I decided to also store the previous year too. First create the following Variables:
Then add the following to your Load Script
LET vYear_Current = Year(Today());
LET vYear_Previous = Year(Today()) -1;
LET vMonth_Current = Month(Today());
Once you refresh the QVW those variables will populate with the current year, current month and previous year values based on the date of the local computer or server.
