I'm working on fex for a graph in which the previous years summed ACTUAL is used as a Baseline which is then used to calculate Targets for this years Year to Date (YTD) total. I've tried DEFINE and COMPUTE but can't seem to get either to work. Part of my problem is that when I get the data and try to put it in the graph, the Baseline data is from last year and the graph is for the current YTD, so, either the graph shows everything from last year AND this year and the Baseline is visible, or the graph only shows this year (YTD) and the Baseline disappears. I've looked into using MATCH FILE but am not sure if this is the right course of action. I think I may be making this more difficult than it should be. Here is what I'm working with.

The Baseline is the summed ACTUAL from 201601-201611 (7,108,289)
The YTD is the summed ACTUAL from 201701 - Present

|FYFM | FYMTH | ACTUAL 

201601| Oct   |1,090,513
201602| Nov   |1,009,781
201603| Dec   |921,291
201604| Jan   |839,813
201605| Feb   |745,650
201606| Mar   |650,900
201607| Apr   |557,191
201608| May   |464,314
201609| Jun   |371,134
201610| Jul   |275,113
201611| Aug   |182,589
201612| Sep   |132,543
201701| Oct   |358,743 
201702| Nov   |266,805 
201703| Dec   |177,579

Hey Chuck, thanks for the feedback. I still end up with the scenario of either it shows all the years and a Baseline or only the YTD and no baseline. The only difference is that the Baseline isn't showing at all.

Somehow I've got to get my Baseline and Targets to be straight lines across the graph with my ACTUALS as the only line that changes.

Pondog,

I copied your data into one column of an XL and defined a master for that column:
  
FILENAME=PONDOG, SUFFIX=DIREXCEL,
 DATASET=c:\ibi\apps\focalpoint\pondog.xlsx, $
  SEGMENT=PONDOG, SEGTYPE=S0, $
    FIELDNAME=PONDOG, ALIAS=PONDOG, USAGE=A24, ACTUAL=A24,
      MISSING=ON,
      TITLE='PONDOG', $


I then extracted FYFM and ACTUAL from the single field PONDOG:
  
DEFINE FILE PONDOG
FYFM/A6=EDIT(PONDOG,'999999');
ACTUAL/I9=  EDIT(STRIP(9,GETTOK(PONDOG, 24, 3, '|', 9, 'A9'), ',', 'A9'));
-*
BASELINE/D20 = IF FYFM GE '201601' AND FYFM LE '201611' THEN ACTUAL
                       ELSE 0 ;
TARGET1_ARRIVES/D12.2 = BASELINE * 1.01 ;
TARGET2_ARRIVES/D12.2 = BASELINE * 1.04 ;
TARGET3_ARRIVES/D12.2 = BASELINE * 1.07 ;
YTD_ARR/D10CB = IF FYFM GE '201701' THEN ACTUAL ELSE 0 ;
END

Notice: For YTD_ARR, quotes about 201701 and the ELSE to complete the IF.

Finally I produce output (WITHOUT FORMATTING FOR BREVITY):
  
GRAPH FILE PONDOG
SUM
  BASELINE
  TARGET1_ARRIVES
  TARGET2_ARRIVES
  TARGET3_ARRIVES
  YTD_ARR
END


Is this what you want to show in your graph?

Thanks for the e-mail. In looking at what you sent and what you want to accomplish in my mind the data does not lend itself to that. The targets based on the baseline and the ytd_arr are a single point in time and I don't see how they can be a line across time for the 2017 values. Hopefully someone else has an idea of how to accomplish this.


Thank you for using Focal Point!
