using calculated fields instead

Copper Contributor

I have various formulas taking the difference between the two months if the issuer shows up in both quarters 




possible to set these up as calculated fields instead ? need the formulas to be dynamic as the dates will change every quarter 






(i scrubbed out the issuer name and they're unique so that's why there's no instance of an issuer in both quarters).

If you use months as columns that doesn't work. We can't add additional measures only to totals, they will appear in the block for each month. Or, if we compare quarters, that will quarters instead.

If always we have only two quarter, we may add measures for current quarter, previous quarter and their comparison. With that we won't use months/quarters in columns.


Alternatively, we may keep months/quarters, measures like Qty change appears in each months/quarters (compare with previous period). Here we shall not use grand totals for rows.


Very short sample for the first variant looks like
