Create a new table based on start and end dates in my table

Hi All!

 

Will start by thanking you all on answering my previously questions! Big virtual clap on the shoulder.

 

The next problem I have is trying to create a graph over the numbers of campaigns per week.

This is my Campaign table:

As you can see I dont have one line per week just the start week and end week.

With this data I like to create a graph to compare the 2 years to eachother, like this:

To create this graph I faked the result table I need help with. The table I created by hand looks like this:

So does anyone of you have and idee how I can create my helper table from a combination of my Campaign table and mayby an Calender table?

Is there someway I can create the graph without my helper table just by creating measuers/columns?

 

I have used SUMMARIZE before to create tables but in this case I need multiple lines per week line and I cant get that with SUMMARIZE as I see it.

 

Kind regards,

Thomas

Hi @TCR_Carlsberg

 

Try this

 

Go to Modelling Tab>>>> NEW TABLE and enter this formula

 

NEW TABLE =
SELECTCOLUMNS (
    GENERATE (
        Campaign_Table,
        GENERATESERIES (
            CALCULATE ( VALUES ( Campaign_Table[StartWeek] ) ),
            CALCULATE ( VALUES ( Campaign_Table[EndWeek] ) )
        )
    ),
    "CampID", Campaign_Table[CampID],
    "CampName", Campaign_Table[CampName],
    "Year", Campaign_Table[Year],
    "Week", [Value]
)

Re: Create a new table based on start and end dates in my table

I dont have any trouble creating a calender. I just cant use that to create a helper table.

This is how I created the Calender table I played with to try and solv this by myself:

Calendar = ADDCOLUMNS ( CALENDAR (DATE(2016;1;1); DATE(2018;12;31)); 
    "DateAsInteger"; FORMAT ( [Date]; "YYYYMMDD" ); 
    "Year"; YEAR ( [Date] ); 
    "MonthNo"; FORMAT ( [Date]; "MM" ); 
    "YearMonthNo"; FORMAT ( [Date]; "YYYYMM" ); 
    "YearWeek"; FORMAT ( [Date]; "YYYY" )&FORMAT(WEEKNUM([Date];2);"0#"); 
    "WeekNo"; FORMAT(WEEKNUM([Date];2);"0#"); 
    "Month"; FORMAT ( [Date]; "mmmm" ); 
    "Quarter"; "Q" & FORMAT ( [Date]; "Q" ); 
    "YearQuarter"; FORMAT ( [Date]; "YYYY" ) & "/Q" & FORMAT ( [Date]; "Q" ))

Thomas

That is a beautiful solution. Works like a charm in my test case. I'll try it on my complete dataset...

 

Thank you!
