Summing from week to quarter between timeranges
I have encouterend a problem that keeps bugging me, so I would like to share this with you guys!
In a model I have two timeranges:
Model timerange: 2 years, months, no quarter totals.
additional timerage "Long term": 5 years, quarter totals.
Module A: Model timerange:
Lineitem 1: timesettings: weeks
Lineitem 2: timeformatted item that contains the Quarter of that month.
Module B: Time range "Long Term".
Lineitem 1: timesettings: Quarter.
I would like to use the formula for module B: ModuleA.Lineitem1[SUM:ModuleA.Lineitem2]
Sadly this doesnt work.
The only way i have found to direct the data from module A to module B, is to make a lineitem that is weekly 'formatted' in stead of quarter formatted. This will cost us an excessive amount of cells, just to convert between time (TImerange 1: weeks, tot timerang2: quarters).
Does anyone have a better solution for this problem?
