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?
Have you tried using the function TimeSum? Try the following which I believe will help you. Create a Time Filter module with Months as the basic Time Range (so the module is defined at the month level) and create two line items: Start Week and End Week with the following formulas:
I have a transaction module with data at the weekly level:
In my summary module at the month level, I have a formula using TimeSum
