    naveen kumar

      i had created two variables in variable overview


      vMaxdate =Date(Date#('3 Jan' & Year(Date), 'DD MMMyyyy'), 'D MMM')

      vMindate = =Date(Max({Group2}Date),'D MMM')

      expression :i tried two exp

      =sum({<Date={">=$(vMindate)<=$(vMaxdate)"},bid={1},set  = {P}, Type={1}>} value)


      =sum({Group2<Date={">=$(vMindate)<=$(vMaxdate)"},bid={1},set  = {P}, Type={1}>} value)

      if i select 16 Jan from Date field from calendar object whose Alternative State is Group2

      then i can clear can see the below thing is happen

      sum({<Date={">=3 Jan<=16 Jan"},bid={1},set  = {P}, Type={1}>} value)

      which means my variables are carrying correct date values .

      but unfortunately i am getting ZERO as output ,which shouldn't be ...

      so my concert is this a data flow problem ?. I mean is my Date in text format if so how can i make it in to numeric 

      suppose data values are like


      1 Jan

      2 Jan




      10 Jan

      11 Jan



      20 Jan

          You are right, your date could be text. Why don't you do this kind of transformation in the script for Date field as well?

          Date(Date#('3 Jan' & Year(Today()), 'DD MMMyyyy'), 'D MMM')


          or just this:

          Date(Date#('3 Jan', 'D MMM'), 'D MMM')

              I got about 14 tabs and i have not clue from where the Date filed is coming ,but i am sure there are multiple Date fields in  script because i can see a key type of icon over Date field ,so what i mean, is there any alternative way to convert Date field in to numeric at frond end
