    Restrict Dimension Value

    Monu Saraswati

      Hi All,


      I have dimension values as Q3-2017, Q2-2017, Q1-2017 and so on. I want to restrict the dimension only to the current quarter which is Q3-2017.

      Please help.


      Thanks in advance!

          Try like below

          example, using set analysis expression,

          let say you have Sales.

          sum( {<quarter -={'Q3-2017'}>} Sales)

          Thanks, Deva

            use the below SET modifier in your chart expressions:

            {< Quarter = {'Q3-2017'} >}

              Hello Monu,


              Are you talking about restricting from the first day of the current quarter (in this case 07/01/17) until today? In that case you should check everything related to Quarter to Date (QTD) staff.
