Idea: best practice guide formula editing

Hi all,

I keep on struggling with more complex formula's ij the formula editor. An example is the "difference-from-calculation". The dialog box indicates it requires a Time-dimension, which I have in my model, yet I cannot select it in my drop-down. Probably this is due to certain restrictions that I don't know (I;e. lowest grain possible is Month ??)

Wouldn't it be a great idea to have a little best practice guide with samples of the most commonly used dimensions? For Lumira these exist and they are a great help and inspiration for anybody. The guide shouldn't be to complex; just 4 or 5 pages with some common examples:

- how to do a running sum

- how to use the difference from calc

- how to set-up a calculated dimension

- etc etc

Hi Iver,

Good idea. I will check with the team to see if that's something we can create.

Have you read the online help: Calculation Editor

https://uacp2.hana.ondemand.com/doc/00f68c2e08b941f081002fd3691d86a7/release/en-US/8e50fc26edbe4c80a9e560f8c00b9b04.html

This resource is also good:
