    Graph Help with Months

    Joshua Russin

      I am trying to achieve a graph that shows all the months, regardless of the data. I am showing the sum of processed per month in the graph. Right now it only shows up until September (Current month), but I also want to have Oct, Nov, Dec in there as well although they will just be zeros. This is the app I currently am working with. If there are any alternate solutions, I am open. Thanks! ! !

          You have a got a unique data model where the master calendar is not connected to the fact table... is this on purpose?


          Also, in your sample you just don't have the last three months.... may be use master calendar to the end of the year?

              I am new to Master Calendar. How would I connect it? How could I go about trying this?

                  I'm unable to check following without sample data file of yours.


                  Following has Calendar. if use MonthName(CalMonth) then most likely you will have all months. you may have to uncheck suppress null and/or zero flags


                  Copy Paste following in your load editor


                  //This is where to add new holiday hours
                  SET vHolidays = '1/2/2017', '5/29/2017', '7/4/2017', '11/23/2017', '11/24/2017', '12/25/2017', '12/26/2017';

                  //Loads data from OB_Summary_Data file
                  //Sheet OB_Dash_Data
                      Date(Date_Dash) as Date_MS,
                      Month(Date_Dash) as Month,
                      Num(Month(Date_Dash)) as MonthNum,
                      Year(Date_Dash) as Year,
                      MakeDate(year(Date_Dash)) as vCY,
                      MakeDate(month(Date_Dash)) as vCM,
                  //    Min(Date_Dash) AS MinDate,
                  //    Max(Date_Dash) as MaxDate,
                      If(Processed_Dash < Daily_Target_Dash, 1,0) as Daily_Target_Flag,
                  //Load Date(MinDate +IterNo()-1 ) AS MasterCal While (MinDate + IterNo() -1) <= Num(MaxDate);

                Try this calendar script.

                Create a field in your facts table for the date you want to use. Like


                LOAD col1, col2,

                          Num(Floor(YourdateFieldFact)) AS %KeyField

                FROM yoursource;




                Num(Floor(TempDate))                                AS %KeyField,

                'W' & week(TempDate)                                AS _Week,

                Year(TempDate)  AS _Year,

                Month(TempDate)  AS _Month,

                Day(TempDate)  AS _Day,

                YeartoDate(TempDate)*-1                              AS _CurYTDFlag,

                YeartoDate(TempDate,-1)*-1                          AS _LastYTDFlag,

                date(monthstart(TempDate), 'MMM-YYYY')              AS _MonthYear,

                'Q' & ceil(month(TempDate) / 3)                      AS _Quarter,

                Week(weekstart(TempDate)) & '-' & WeekYear(TempDate) AS _WeekYear,

                Date(TempDate, 'MMM-DD')                            AS _MonthDay,

                WeekDay(TempDate)                                    AS _WeekDay



                //=== Generate a temp table of dates ===


                      date(mindate + IterNo()) AS TempDate,

                      maxdate // Used in InYearToDate() above, but not kept

                WHILE mindate + IterNo() <= maxdate;


                //=== Get min/max dates from Field ===/


                min(FieldValue('YourDateFieldFact', recno()))-1 AS mindate,

                max(FieldValue('YourDateFieldFact', recno()))  AS maxdate

                AUTOGENERATE FieldValueCount('YourDateFieldFact');
