Track Weekly Trend

Hi!

 

Objective

  • Track weekly trends.
  • Table 1: updated with data for the current week.
  • Table 2 (i.e. the 'historical table): dynamic, only contains data from the previous week.
  • Compare values from the current week vs values from the previous week.

Context

  • Table 1: update/overwrite data weekly
    • Data Source: Excel (file saved on SharePoint).
  • Automate the below process.

Example of Required Output

Week 1

  • Table 1: updated with new data.

Week 2

  • Table 2 (i.e. the 'historical table') captures data as-is for Week 1 from Table 1.
  • Table 1: updated with new data.

Week 3

  • Table 2 (i.e. the 'historical table') overwrites Week 1 data with Week 2 data from Table 1.
  • Table 1: updated with new data.

Week 4

  • Table 2 (i.e. the 'historical table') overwrites Week 2 data with Week 3 data from Table 1
  • Table 1: updated with new data.

The above is then repeated..

Any support is much appreciated!

Hi @PP_Freshman ,

I'm assuming that the historical data won't change and you can try:
Table1 --> References the combined table and removes unneeded columns:

Filter out the latest data:

Table2 -->  References the combined table and removes unneeded columns --> Filter out the second largest number of weeks:
