Hi @Shubham085 

I'll be making a theoretical approach, since I don't have the data.

First: calculate the range of periods you'll need (Generate Rows can help you with this)

Then transpose your data file

Join the data file to the required periods (on date)

That'll give you the periods you need


Can you attach the data or a sample of it? That'll make the workflow usable.



Thank you for reply. I tried your approch but could not implement it. I am hereby attaching a sample file for R12 M. Kindly implement your approch.

Hi @Shubham085 

The workflow you attached, refers to an excel file, that is not present in the attachments. Can you re attach the Excel?
