[CLOSED] Sorting a bar chart based on the a date but display by month year

Hi Everyone,

I am trying to create a graph which is similar to the example code below. Here 'Date' will be my primary sort field which will be hidden and my secondary sort field Month_Year will be my display sort field.The challenge I am facing is, let's say I have 3 dates for Jan 2019, I would like to plot bars for 3 dates on x-axis, but on the x-axis label I want to show Jan 2019 only once for all the 3 dates instead of thrice. Please let me know if there is a way to do it or I am missing something.

 
-DEFAULTH &WF_TITLE='WebFOCUS Report';

Define file ggsales
Month_field/A20=EDIT((DATECVT(DATE, 'I8YYMD', 'A8YYMD')),'$$$$99$$');
Month_Name/A20=IF  Month EQ '01' THEN 'Jan' ELSE IF
Month EQ '02' THEN 'Feb' ELSE IF
Month EQ '03' THEN 'Mar' ELSE IF
Month EQ '04' THEN 'Apr' ELSE IF
Month EQ '05' THEN 'May' ELSE IF
Month EQ '06' THEN 'Jun' ELSE IF
Month EQ '07' THEN 'Jul' ELSE IF
Month EQ '08' THEN 'Aug' ELSE IF
Month EQ '09' THEN 'Sep' ELSE IF
Month EQ '10' THEN 'Oct' ELSE IF
Month EQ '11' THEN 'Nov' ELSE 
'Dec';
Month_Year/A25=Month_Name|| (' ' |EDIT((DATECVT(DATE, 'I8YYMD', 'A8YYMD')),'9999'));
END

GRAPH FILE ggsales

Hello,
According to my understanding.

"Jan 2019 only once for all the 3 dates instead of thrice"

meaning you need to group all the jan month into one unit(grouping) and display the value in the graph ?
If that is the case, change your primary sort to month_year only.

Move your NOPRINT to the GGSALES.SALES01.DATE field...


Thank you for using Focal Point!

I moved NOPRINT to DATE field, But, still it did not give what I want.I want to plot graph by date, but on x-axis it will show as Jan 2019. For example on x-axis it should show data for 01-01-2019, 01-02-2019 and 01-03-2019 but label should show only Jan 2019 once for the above 3 dates, not for each date.

Understand your data, the dates that you quote are for 1st January, 1st Febraury and 1st March and NOT 1st, 2nd and 3rd January (check the synonym, they are format I8YYMD).

Hi Tony,

You are right, that is how it is in the GGSALES synonym. I should have given a different example maybe. But, I have my dates from same month like I mentioned above. Please let me know if there is a way to show Month Name and Year(like Jan 2019) only once in the x-axis label despite plotting 3 dates on the x-axis on the graph.

Hi BI Dev,

I tried a bit.

This is what you looking or something like this.


 TABLE FILE CAR
PRINT
CAR
SEATS
COMPUTE S_NO/I2=LAST S_NO + 1;
COMPUTE FLD_1/A20=DECODE S_NO(1 'JAN' 2 'JAN' 3 'JAN' 4 'FEB' 5 'MAR' 6 'MAR');
COMPUTE FLD_2/A20=DECODE S_NO(1 '01/01/2019' 2 '01/10/2019' 3 '01/15/2019' 4 '02/14/2019' 5 '03/05/2019' 6 '03/25/2019');
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 6
ON TABLE HOLD AS FINAL_SET FORMAT ALPHA
END
-RUN
ENGINE INT CACHE SET ON

Hi Pav,

Thanks for taking time, I have a couple of questions,
1)How do I do it dynamically for all the dates?
2)I would need to plot the FLD_1(field name in your code) in the graph but not display it in the x-axis as a label. FLD_2 is something I will include in the BY which is fine.

Regards
BI Dev

For Question 1, you need to transform your column by using virtual fields to get the data in order.

For Question 2, If you don't want JAN, FEB, MAR to be printed in the label then Try

BY FLD_1 NOPRINT
BY FLD_2 AS ''

Hope this is helpful.

Can you also provide a sample graph image that you looking for?

Thank You.
