  • Issue#27: Tableau - YTD Totals and Total by Dimension Type

    Hello All.  I have a two part question which If someone could be so kind to provide a solution, it would be a huge advancement for the work I'm trying to do in Tableau ( this would be a simple calculation in Excel ).  Below are the two points I need help with please: a)  A calculation that will bring me the Total for October YTD for the following years 2015 and 2014.  I think it may be necessary to have the option to select the month considered for YTD, in this case October. b) A calculation that will total differently based on the specific Dimensions. The first dimension is an end of month total deposit balance;  (YTD Total should be the balance of October, not the sum of the 10 months).  The second dimension is 'Sales' which DOES TOTAL all the months for the year. Below is the table (prepared in Excel) that I am trying to duplicate in Tableau.  I've also attached the excel file as a reference.    Thank you to all who

    Hi Guys  I know this problem might be ask many times in this forum, I try to search about this problem and found some similar thread but still cannot solve my problem.e.g. Running Distinct Sum or Total using COUNTD this should be most similar issue in my opinion.  So normally I can use COUNTD(Customer ID) to calculate amount of distinct customer but this can be only distinct customer of each day not all period.As you can see in a picture total unique of customer is 1,130 but when I use table calculation to do a running total the number on last day shown as 1,480(it should be shown as 1,130). How can I do a running total without duplicate value from previous days. Thank you in advanced

    Hello, I am very new to Tableau and am trying to create a table of data in a very specific format.  I have sales by location, by month for the last few years.  I am wanting to add a yearly total column in that will show YTD for the current year and Yearly Total for prior years (would like this to show up where red arrows are in the picture).  I also am wanting to know how to add a calculation that will show year over year % change.  So for example, as my data is thru Feb. 2016, the sum for each row of Jan/Feb 2016 would be compared to the total from Jan./Feb. 2015 and the % difference calculated.  When I receive March data and add it, I would want the % change column to calculate the % change of Jan/Feb/Mar 2016 with Jan/Feb/Mar 2015 and so on.  Im trying to add this all the way at the end, where the green arrow is.  I have tried many different things and can't seem to get this to work, also I couldn't find an example of something similar being d

  • Issue#491380: Tableau - Percent of Total issue in a USA dashboard

    Hi, Attached workbook version: 9.1 Background:1. I created a superstore worksheet to show Sales as a Percent of Total across the United States.2. I duplicated the worksheet but filtered the States to only Arizona.3. I put these sheets in a dashboard. Problem:1. The actual Percent of Total value for Arizona is 1.54% But on the Arizona sheet it shows up as 100%. Note:- I know the reason as to why this is happening. It's because when filtered on Arizona, the Total Sales is the same as the Sales for Arizona location.- I want to know if there's a solution or a workaround to this problem.- My actual dashboard has Alaska and Hawaii but I couldn't find that in the Superstore database. Help will be much appreciated.Thanks in advance,Suraj.  

  • Issue#589911: Tableau - Custom Date showing values in Running Total for future months in YTD calculation

    Hello, I have a complex problem, which I am hoping someone can help me solve. I attached a workbook that uses the sample data set to help illustrate the problem. Here's the scenario: I am using a date, which has a fiscal year that starts in October. However, sometimes the data needs to be displayed by the actual calendar year, so I created a calculated date from the Order Date (called 'Order Date (Fiscal)'). I then need to create a YTD calculation based on the Order Date (Fiscal), but in order for the calculation to function properly with the fiscal year, I created 2 additional dates using a DATEADD function that add 3 months to the Order Date and TODAY(), titled Fiscal Date and Fiscal Date Today Respectively. The two YTD calculations are titled 2014 YTD Quantity and 2013 YTD Quantity. I have the two YTD calculations on a line graph over months of the year with a running_sum table calculation applied. My problem is this; the line graph extends through June, July, August,

    Hi there,   I am trying to write a measure which can calculate the running totals across months of various years. I am somehow getting accurate result with my formula but the only problem with my formula is that it is calculating or rather copy pasting the same amount in the months that are not present in my data.   My data has sales till 31-01-2016 but somehow the running total formula which i wrote is calculating the running total for feb ,march & so on till december but copy pasting the january sales total in all months. here is what i tried. Runningtotal_YTD = calculate(sale,datesytd(datekey(date))) I also tried  runningtotal_YTD= Totalytd(sales,datekey(date)). Both formula are fetching the identical results.  How can i resolve it??

  • Issue#20: Tableau - Aggregation issue

        Hello all, I just want to begin by saying how much this forum has saved my job! Thanks everyone! I am having an issue getting my values to aggregate properly. I have attached two pictures below to help explain:BEFOREAFTERThe problem is that when I remove a dimension, the values are not aggregating properly. Each Facility and Cost Center should have 1 App attached to it and taking away Summary Pay type should not aggregate those Apps. Once I take away Cost Center, then they should begin to aggregate. I can use MAX() but then it keeps the same value when I get rid of cost center and I would want that to be Summed. The end goal of this is to track Dollars/App By facility and able to drilldown to cost center, then summary pay type and another layer of fidelity that I may add in. Thanks!

  • Issue#31677: Parrot Bebop 2 Camera Blurry Issue Comparison (Night, Cloudy, Day) - Not first batch hardware issue.

    This video is to prove that the Bebop 2 camera blurry video is not caused by a camera defect but the firmware programming issue. They need to fix... I would suggest FF3 to allow users to adjust the video recording bandwidth optionally (from default 20Mbps to 45Mbps adjustable) to be set in the preference of coming updates of FF3. The bandwidth of FPV live feed remains unchanged is ok for a 1500mW bi-directional Router Mod but not sure for a stock drone. Also to provide an option to disable denoise filter will be nice. But I don't think Paris is ok and understandable to do these new optimizations.  

  • Issue#33798: Rogue Till The Day You Die

    I'm not a huge fan of PVP, but I seem to be holding my own in this game, so far. My entry to the Dark Zone, however, was rather ignominous: found there was a mass firefight just past the entrance gate, went splat, respawned, went back in shooting and then got told I'd gone Rogue, WTF? The game could definitely do with explaining these little bits as you pass through the checkpoint, not as you find yourself accidentally engaging in them. Anyway, on to my point. I soldiered on and managed to get to the other side of the Zone that we can currently play in, whereupon I crossed paths with what turned out to be a pair of blatant griefers; the problem was, however, I couldn't tell that they were. Why? Because every time they killed another player, they'd run off into a particular corner of the game map and wait for their countdowns to run out, then re-emerge to go squashing the next player they came across; for about 10-20 minutes, that happened to be me, over and over again.
