Hi, I am trying to make a simple comparison between date, but I am not been able to match the expected type of data. The conditional is:
case when [Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.get('Start') < OpeningPeriod([Time].[day]) then [Measures].[some value]
And the error I am getting:
#ERR: mondrian.olap.fun.MondrianEvaluationException: Expected value of type NUMERIC; got value 'Mon Jul 25 00:00:00 UTC 2016' (DATETIME)
The [TIME] page filter is set for a whole month.
to compare two dates, you should use function DateCompare.
Also, instead of function OpeningPeriod you could just use eazyBI MDX function StartDate to get the start date of selected time period (a month in your case).
The calculation could look the following:
CASE WHEN DateCompare( [Issue].CurrentHierarchyMember.get('Start'), [Time].CurrentHierarchyMember.StartDate)<0 THEN [Some measure] END
Function StartDate returns DateTime value; if exact time affects comparison then add function DateWithoutTime for one or both dates.
