I actually need both. I'll be doing the two following charts:
1. Comparison of each two consecutive years (showing the actual change between the two years) where all years can be viewed at the same time and where also the user can select to see just one or more comparions (my question here Comparing 2 consecutive years - Charts showing changes between 2 years)
2. Comparison of whichever two years where the user selects which 2 years they want to compare (still showing the actual change between the two years).
I hope this makes it bit clearer.
Thanks a lot for any insight into this!
the best approach for comaprision 2 user selections is alternate states.
You may define your states in Settings/Document Properties.
Then you may use state name in set analysis and also decide, that object (for example listbox) belongs to some state.
This will let you resolve problem of comparision of two user selections.
Of course you may use the same also for consecutive years comparisions. But for that 2'nd scenario there are also mor user friendly approaches In fact user need to select only one year or even see YoY KPI with year as dimension (without any Year selections)...
Thanks a lot Darek, I'll try all that.
I'm just wondering whether this way I'll be able to get QV to show the change between the two years, not just show the two years next to each other... I think I haven't been clear about this since the beginning. But I'll try and see.
You will be able to use both alternate states in one expression of course

an easy way is to use the property "set reference" (check qvw)
make a 1st year selection, use "Set reference" and choose another year and you will see both
This is definitely a great function that I had not been aware of! Nevertheless it does not do exactly what I need as I want to show the actual difference between two years. Also, I just tried to use the 'set reference' in a dashboard published on a QV server - which is how our clients use it - and I don't think the option is there.
Thanks for the information anyway, I learned something new!
verificar as propriedades do gráfico em dimensões e colocar os resultados nas "dimensões utilizadas" ano.
acredito que vai conhecê-lo!
