Clarifications on Year/Quarter function
I hope my question and observation is clearly passed acrossed.
Please clarify the difference between both function when creating the table. A previous lecture on Hierarchies has the function for Quarter/Year as
''Quarter/Year'', "Q" & format([Date], ''Q'') &''/''& format([Date], ''YYYY'')).
While our current lecture on Task Three, Part1 has the function for YearQuarter as
"YearQuarter" format([Date], "YYYY") &"/Q"& format([Date]), "Q"))
Please help explain the highlighted section as displayed above or in both the attached. Or for simplicity can i just adopt one approach if they both have same output
The difference consists in creating a date table (where you specify HOW each column is created - second option) versus creating a hierarchy from an existing column (first example, where you EDIT the way a previously created column is going to output) I hope this helps. This is the way I make sense of it. I may be wrong, though.
