Advanced Charts - Line chart showing several years by month

Hi everyone,

Has anyone used the Dashboards for advanced line charts to show a few years of actuals and the current year of budget? I am trying to show actuals for 2019, 2020, and 2021 and 2021 budget by month and cannot figure out how to get this to come through. I set up a cube view with my account in the POV and the Time in the column and a combination of scenario and time in the rows since i don’t want to see budgets for every one of these years.

Thanks,
Cindy

This may be suitable to your question. Advanced Chart Type is XY2D. Cube view has UD8 members on the row and Time by month on the column. The UD8 members are essentially: Actual Current Year, Actual Prior Year, Budget Current Year etc. The dynamic calc for each member leverages T#POV to return the appropriate fiscal year.

Thanks Terry - what a brilliant way to solve this issue.

Nice solution @TerryLedet . Alternatively the same can be achieved using BI Viewer component.

  • The cube view will have Scenario and Time on the columns and Account dim on the rows (really doesn't matter columns or rows as long as all 3 dims are in the cube view).
  • The data adapter => data source => Command type will be "Cube view MD"
  • The BI Viewer component will have Amount on Values Pane, Time on Arguments pane and Scenario on Series. The Account dim will become a List box filter and selection from POV not required (see pic attached)

I personally found the BI Viewer to be easier and more flexible than "Chart components" but it has its own drawbacks
