Key figure in a series

Former Member
0 Kudos


Our customer pointed out that on a certain metric, the key figure needs to a additive series, rather than an individual value. So except for the 1st fiscal quarter every other qtr is sum of itself and the previous qtr - within a single year.

The problem is also that in the query we pass a starting time period as a variable and from that point on, upto ten qtrs can be displayed if there is data. So we cannot fix the query to a single year with four fix columns.

Please advise.

Try the following:

1. Take variable curr fiscal year in the filter of the query.

2. Create another variable on quarter and restrict it with 1 and create a rest key figure on this and keep it in column1.

3. Create variables for 2,3 and 4th quarters and offet them with +1, +2 , +3.

4. Create cal key figuures on these quarters and keep them in columns 2, 3, and 4.

Save the query.

what characteristics do you have available?

If you have 0CALYEAR and 0CALQUART1 (resp FISCYEAR and FISCPER3) then drilling them in the columns and having your KF flagged as cumulated would make it.

Otherwise, what ar yours alternative? can you afford remodelling? Add this YTD KeyFig in your provider would be an option?

hope this helps...
