YOY calculations

I saw this post https://dojo.domo.com/t5/Domo-Dojo-Contest-January-2016/quot-Best-Beast-Mode-Formula-quot-Year-over-Year-Change/idi-p/7933

since I was having difficulty with Period over periods. Although useful it only works if you have the data range to select both years worth of data.

 

I am trying to just isolate a week and have a YOY% comparison for a certain dimension column with values 

that existed a year ago but in my card I will only want to see the values for in 2016 with a column YOY%

    It looks like at least one problem is with the date field in your second week function, highlighted in red.  Those should be back-ticks (`) and not single quotes.  Please test that and let me know if it works.   If there still is a problem I will often just test one simpler part of the formula to ensure that works and then go on to the rest.  

     

     

    (
    (SUM(CASE WHEN (YEAR(`Date`)) = YEAR(CURRENT_DATE()) and WEEK('Date') = WEEK(CURDATE()) THEN `Revenue` ELSE 0 END))
    -
    (SUM(CASE WHEN (DATE_FORMAT(`Date`,'%m/%d')) >= (DATE_FORMAT((CURRENT_DATE()),'%m/%d')) THEN 0 WHEN (YEAR(`Date`)) = (YEAR(CURRENT_DATE())-1) AND WEEK('Date') = WEEK(CURDATE()) THEN `Revenue` ELSE 0 END))

    /
    (SUM(CASE WHEN (DATE_FORMAT(`Date`,'%m/%d')) > (DATE_FORMAT((CURRENT_DATE()),'%m/%d')) THEN 0 WHEN (YEAR(`Date`)) = (YEAR(CURRENT_DATE())-1) AND WEEK('Date') = WEEK(CURDATE()) THEN `Revenue` ELSE 0 END))

  • Hi -- Are you trying to compare the current week's performance, with the same week last year?  If so, there is a "Week" function that will show you the week number of the year 0-52.

     

    The syntax for current year would be:

    case when year(`Date`) = year(curdate()) and Week(`Date`) = week(curdate()) then `Amount` else 0 End

     

    The syntax for prior year would be:

    case when year(`Date`) = year(curdate()) -1 and Week(`Date`) = week(curdate()) then `Amount` else 0 End

     

    Can you clarify if that is what you need?  Thanks,

  • ke I am Looks like I am hitting an syntax error

    (
    (SUM(CASE WHEN (YEAR(`Date`)) = YEAR(CURRENT_DATE()) and WEEK('Date') = WEEK(CURDATE()) THEN `Revenue` ELSE 0 END))
    -
    (SUM(CASE WHEN (DATE_FORMAT(`Date`,'%m/%d')) >= (DATE_FORMAT((CURRENT_DATE()),'%m/%d')) THEN 0 WHEN (YEAR(`Date`)) = (YEAR(CURRENT_DATE())-1) AND WEEK('Date') = WEEK(CURDATE()) THEN `Revenue` ELSE 0 END))

    /
    (SUM(CASE WHEN (DATE_FORMAT(`Date`,'%m/%d')) > (DATE_FORMAT((CURRENT_DATE()),'%m/%d')) THEN 0 WHEN (YEAR(`Date`)) = (YEAR(CURRENT_DATE())-1) AND WEEK('Date') = WEEK(CURDATE()) THEN `Revenue` ELSE 0 END))

     

    I don't see WEEK in purple

     

    Thanks! Appreciate it!
