How to create date dimension table
Hi Grant, you provided a very intriguing solution for identifying time periods here: https://dojo.domo.com/discussion/comment/50540#Comment_50540
You mention, "What you can do is create a date dimension table which calculates the dates for this year, last year, last quarter etc. I utilized a MySQL dataflow to calculate these from the calendar dates Domo Dimension dataset." and then provide a SQL statement to work in MySQL.
I'm struggling though to figure out how to create a date dimension table. If I follow correctly, there is a "calendar dates Domo dimension dataset"? And then you apply the SQL statement you provided to that dataset in MySQL? When I attempt to do so, I need to input a dataset, but not sure how to pull this existing dataset...
I'd appreciate some further clarification.
