    Only show last 18 months

    james eckstein

      I am trying to create a line graph with using the expression sum(Cash_on_hand) and the dimension MonthYear.


      I need my graph to only show the last 18 months of data, how do I do this.



      Thanks in advance.

          May be like this for your expression:


          Sum({<Date = {$("= '>=' & Date(MonthStart(Max(Date), -18), 'DateFieldFormatHere') & '<=' & Date(MonthStart(Max(Date), 0), 'DateFieldFormatHere')"}>}Cash_on_hand)

              is this keeping in mind that my Dimension in MonthYear (a combination of month and year like 08-16)


              because it does not seem to be wokring

                  Are you using set analysis with date or MonthYear? How is your MonthYear field getting calculated in the script?

                      No set analysis in the monthyear. I think that is all i need. it the proper set analysis for my dimension "MonthYear" to only show the Max -18.
