Running Total Year over Year


Is there a way to do a running total year over year inside analyzer or do I have to go into ETL and manipulate the data in order to have a year over year?

When using the running total graph, I tried to change my X-Axis by month and Series by year but it made my current year the same value for future months but my previous year was correct.

    Hi @user06209

    You can utilize window functions in a beast mode (you just need to have them enabled - talk to your CSM)

    SUM(SUM(`Amount`)) OVER (PARTITION BY YEAR(`Date`) ORDER BY `Date`)
  • @GrantSmith Can this same beast mode be utilized within a Formula Tile in ETL 2.0?

    @Derreck - No. Window functions aren't supported in the formula tile in ETL 2.0. You can use the Rank and Window tile though to do the same thing.

    you can do a cumulative sum using Rank & Window

    SUM(SUM(`Amount`)) OVER (PARTITION BY YEAR(`Date`) ORDER BY `Date`)

    but at the moment you cannot do a Subtotal in Rank & Window. To do this equivalent you'd do a GROUP BY and then JOIN the data back to the original.

    SUM(SUM(`Amount`)) OVER (PARTITION BY YEAR(`Date`) )
