Fluorite | Level 6

Hello guys!!


I am doing a report where I give the option to the user to choose either displaying the current month , if he chooses "Mês" from the button bar, or to display the values over the previous months including the current month, if he chooses "YTD".


I tried to use a Derived Item, but it is not helpful as it gives a single value, also  I tried calculated items with parameters, and I got lost.


Any one has a suggestion ?

Have you thought about using the slider control object for selecting YTD?

I would suggest you take a look at this topic, there is a lot of useful info that may help you:

DO you have two different meassures one for current and one for YTD?

That should be the first step, add them in a table and check that they work 🙂


If so I think you could do the following:

- Create a new parameter and assign it to the button bar.

- Create a new calculated meassure that select either current or YTD depending on the parameter. (IF [parm] = 'Current' then current_var else YTD_var)

- Use that new meassure in your report.


Might help or am I out in the blue 🙂

Thanks for the help.


The problem is that I need to do more calculations, for example , we are in May 2018, but if someone choose March 2018 it should give the sum from January to March, and in this case the YTD_VAR doesn't give the expected results.
