I have a module in which the Timescale is Days. Now I need to get the Day from the date. E.g. for a time period 26 Jul 2015, I want to get 26 as my day. Could you please guide me on how to do that.
Please use the DAY() function.
Create a line item - number formatted and use the formula DAY(START()) in your moudule with timescale Day.
An alternative approach is to use a combination of ITEM and DAY.
This formula will query the current time period and then return the day value formatted as a NUMBER.
No, the DAY function can only accept date as input argument. So it does not accept the time list members.
It could be something like this..DAY(START(ITEM(Time))), I prefer DAY(START())
Yes, you are correct.
ITEM will return a time period format NOT a date format which would not be compatible with DAY().
In that case I would also recommend your solution -
