changing the behaviour of year to date time ranges
Hi Team,

Here's the situation. We have measures that aren't always loaded when the rest of them are loaded. This means some can have data for January to October and others can have data for January to September (pretend we are in November).

In this situation, if the client chooses a Year to Date time range, it will show all the measures on the same screen, but some of them will be as of October and others will be as of September. There is no indication of which ones stop in September and which go to October.

Is there a way to suppress the September measures from showing, or show them with an asterisk?

Cheers,

Joey

Have you tried

WHERE MAX.MEASURE_DATE EQ 'OCT'

Hi Pat,

Thanks for this idea, I'll see if I can use it.

I know the client is hoping for something from the PMF product group, such as a technique or a patch that will cause this to happen automatically. I agree, since we don't want to have to modify every report to behave this way if we can modify the query engine instead.

Cheers,

Joey
