Variable

Hi,

I have tired to do several different options and seems that I am very close to what I am looking for but still I need help as now I am out of ideas.

I have per day counts eg 01/01/2012 = 20, 01/02/2012 = 30 and so on until current date, however my requirement is that I only want to plot counts of first day of the month so that would be like 01/01/2012 = 20, 02/01/2012 = 30 and same way for all the other months.

I am trying to create a variable using where clause but seems I am missing something.

If anyone has idea about this please help.

Thanks.

Kp

    Hi,

    Try creating a variable say,

    [First Day of Month]=if(DayNumberofMonth([Date])=1;[Date])

    this displays dates for first day of the month and null for other dates.

    Regards

    Hi Komal,

    You can create a new variable which will using the formula DayNumberofMonth and then you can put a filter or the report level for filtering out days for which the count is NULL this will give you data for only 1st day of the month.

    I am attaching a snapshot for your reference.

    In the formula editor you can replace the currentdate() function by your date object and [countobject] by the object which is storing the count values for each date.
