# Set Analysis Help

I have a daily observations of active accounts (activeacnts). I would like to do two things with them.

1. Put activeacnts today in  Text box

2. Plot active accounts on the last day of each month in a line chart.

I tried to use set analysis to accomplish this but I cant seem to understand the formatting requirements. e.g. For today's activeacnts I did this

Sum({\$<Date= {'=Date(Today())'}>}activeacnts)

It gives me sum of all the active accounts instead of active accounts Today. if I write

Sum({\$<Date= {'8/2/2012'}>}activeacnts)

Then I get correct answer.

Similarly when i create Expression to plot monthend active accounts I get weird numbers on the line chart. I am not able to understand what's going wrong.

Hi

Try like  this

=Sum({\$<Date= {'\$(Date(Today()))'}>}activeacnts)

But make sure the format. Date(Today(),'MM/DD/YYYY')

Hope it helps

How to make sure of that, Mayil? I think my date format by default is 'M/D/YYYY'

Hi Samarth,

Try this.

=Sum({\$<Date= {"\$(=Date(Today(),'MM/DD/YYYY'))"}>}activeacnts)

Hope this will Help.

Hi

Your date format is 'M/D/YYYY' ? If so, you can use like this,

=Sum({\$<Date= {"\$(=Date(Today(),'M/D/YYYY'))"}>}activeacnts)

I think ,your format is MM/DD/YYYY only..

=Sum({\$<Date= {"\$(=Date(Today(),'MM/DD/YYYY'))"}>}activeacnts)

Hope it helps
