For example, you can use the YEARVALUE function to identify sales across a year that are above average.
|Line item||Number, Boolean, date, time period, list, text||The line item to reference the yearly time summary value for.|
The YEARVALUE function returns a result of the same data type as the line item you reference.
You cannot use the YEARVALUE function in a model that has the Calendar Type set to Weeks: General.
Calculation engine functionality differences
In Polaris, you cannot use the YEARVALUE 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.
