Compare periods of data uploads (not necesarrily dates)
I am working on a report and I present the amount of money spend per period using this graph and the table underlyint this graph:
This is pretty straigthforward, but i am looking for a way to only visualize the amount of money spend per period instead of the cumulative of everything. As a quick solution i made seperate measures, where i manually subtracked Gebbedrag2 - Gebbedrag1 etc. The results are shown the following table.
However, it is difficult to make a nice visual with this and it will take manual work everytime i update this report.
Does somebody know the right formulas to get to this point, without having to make new measures everytime i upload something? Underneath i posted a table with a simplified version of the data i use.
Unless I'm misunderstanding the question, you may just be over thinking it. If you use Date Created as the column, Post as the rows, and SUM(geboekt bedrag) as the values it won't accumulate the sums over the entire table.
If you're meaning something else, please expand on what you are trying to accomplish.
Thanks for your reply. Maybe i was not clear enough in my explanation. I see your point, however, in this case i am only interested in the difference in the amount of money (Geboekt Bedrag) between every period (date created). Using "date created as column gives me a perfect overview on the total amount of "geboekt bedrag" eacht period, but how much more money is spend compared to the previous period.
