Hi,

 

I have a drop-down control in my dasboard which contains the quarters of a year (text). Further I have a cross tab with the

cashflows of the chosen period. In the cross tab I want to compare the chosen period with a previous period but here I get stuck
and I tried to search the internet but could not find the selution.

 

I hope that someone can help me.

 

Best regards,

 

Jeroen

SAS Visual Analytics enables you to create many different derived calculated data items such as "difference from previous parallel period." The documentation is here:

Hi,

 

Thank you for your reply. The problem is that the derived calculated items are limited. The cashflow in the crosstab is based on a text filter (drop-downlist control) for example 'Q1 2016' and I want to compare this with  the cashflows 'Q4-2015' in the same crosstab. So entirely not based on a date. Probably the answer is a calculated data item with something like:

 

if (previous period = 😎 return cashflow else 0

 

But then I get when previous period = 8 only the cashflows based on the filter from the drop-downlist.

 

Best regards.
