For example, you can use the MONTHVALUE function to identify what percentage a given week contributes to monthly sales.
|Line item||Number, Boolean, date, time period, list, text||The line item to reference the monthly time summary value for.|
The MONTHVALUE function returns a result of the same data type as the line item you reference.
- If the line item you reference has a time scale of Quarter or above, then the reference returns the line item's default value. For example,
0for numeric line items.
- You cannot use the MONTHVALUE function in a model that has the Calendar Type set to Weeks: General.
Calculation engine functionality differences
In Polaris, you cannot use the MONTHVALUE function in a result line item with a time scale greater than the function.
The Classic Engine returns a value of 0 in this case.
