How do I create this excel calculation in CV?

Hi All,

I'm creating this report which uses a custom formula, that takes SUM/AVG of past six months, and calculates the Pct value. I tried using Rolling6MonthTotal and Rolling6MonthAvg  view dimension in Denominator/Numerator, but it doesn't work as it should. 

Any ideas on how I can make SUM/AVG the prior 6 month, and run this calculation (highlighted).

Thank you for your help.

Best,

Are you able to share the formula you are using?

This is the dynamic formula I'm using:

 

Try

Dim R6SUMRentalRevenue As Decimal = api.Data.GetDataCell("A#NetIncome:U4#[RentalRevenue]:V#Trailing6MonthTotal").CellAmount

Dim R6AvgFleetTotal As Decimal api.Data.GetDataCell("A#Average_Fleet_Total:V#Trailing6MonthAvg").CellAmount


Return (R6SUMRentalRevenue / R6AvgFleetTotal ) *2


Catch ex As Exception
Return Nothing

End Try

You shouldn't be returning a decimal; you need to return a DataCell.

Return api.Data.GetDataCell("Divide(A#NetIncome:U4#[RentalRevenue]:V#Trailing6MonthTotal, A#Average_Fleet_Total:V#Trailing6MonthAvg)*2")

I'd recommend you review the GetDataCell section of the Member Filters training from the Academy courses: https://onestream.litmos.com/course/1004851

Hmm, a basic GetDataCell should work for this.  It would look like:

GetDataCell(Divide(A#RentalRevenue:V#Trailing6MonthTotal, A#Fleet:V#Trailing6MonthAvg)*2):Name(YourCalc)

Italicized should be replaced with correct member names.
