    inventory turns

    Aditya Reddy

      Hi all,

                I am kind of stuck with a requirement. Can anybody help me with this please

      i have my inventory and sales across the year by week. i need to calculate the inventory turns. my calculations needs to be

      ((current week inventory+last week inventory)/2)/sales for current week. i have tried the previous(inventory) function but did not help. is there any other way that i can achieve this?. i was able to calculate the turns in a pivot table with this expression

      RangeAvg( Before( Sum ([inventory]),0,2 ))/SUM([sales]). But not able to project the same in a bar or line chart. i know that before function doesnt work with charts other than pivot chart. So can anybody help me with this?

      Thanks

          Before may not work as it works on the front end. This goes wrong if a selection is applied.

           

          I would suggest you create a new table with the averages calculated and then link it to the main table based on the week.
