# Multiple Columns from a Single Expression

Is there a way to populate in a straight chart, using a single expression, multiple columns, each column representing a different Period (e.g. Month). For example, in the month of March, I want the user to see 3 columns of data (January, February and March). In the month of April, I want the user to see 4 columns of data (January, February, March and April). And so on through December, when there would be 12 columns. Right now I am using using 12 expressions in order to populate all 12 months of data, which is fine if it is December, but not if it is March, since I don't want to see the 12 trailing months from March back - just 3 months. So what I am looking for is an expression that considers that period variability. Here are the expressions that I am currently using:

=sum({<BillTranDate={">=\$(=TimeStamp(MonthStart(vEndDate,-1)))<=\$(AddMonths(vEndDate,-1)))"}>}BillFeeAmt  [Prior Month]  and so on .

Thank you

Can you use the dimension Month and use set analysis on your expression  to have info only for the current year (you can store the year number in a variable)?

vYear= Year(Today())

Or use a flag on your master calendar with current year and then
SUM({<CurYrFlag = {1}>}BillFeeAmt)
This will only show you Month as a dimension for the months in the current year, and only for those that have values
Hope any of this helps
