Preserve the dynamic page date filter while calculating the aggregate results of diff dates fields.


So my question is essentially this: I have two totals i wish to use for a calculation. The problem is that each total is arrived at using different date fields. If I didn't want to retain the functionality of the date page filter, I could do that in beast mode, but i'd like to exhaust the possibility of retaining that functionality first.


SUM(total1) filtering on Date Field 1

Divided by

Sum(total2) filtering on Date Field 2

I could get around this problem if i could reference the totals from two different cards in say, another card or text object; however, I don't think that is possible.

any thoughts?? thanks!!

    You could possibly use a FIXED function and the FILTER ALLOW clause to only allow filtering on a specific date field when calculating your totals.

    Here's a link to documentation on FIXED function:
