The way around that is to create a new data item, call it Current Week: I tried using count,count distinct but none of them is giving me the correct result. Can u please suggest me some better idea to accomplish this.


The calculations will run during each report execution and be available alongside the stored members. A line graph that shows the running total of sales for the current and previous years.

So far January 1 the expression would appear as: One of the problems often faced when working with true dimensional sources as opposed to DMR which will not be discussed here, ever is working with dates.
