I am charting a turnover rate with 2011 year-to-date and 2012 year-to-date on the same chart.
My X axis has the months Jan-Dec irrespective of year.
My 2011 line tracks the cumulative turnover rate for each month in 2011 with the December rate being the Year-end rate. (as it should).
My 2012 line tracks does the same, but I want it to stop tracking at the most current/most-recent month. Instead it graphs a flat-line from the current month to the end of the year. I want to eliminate the flat-line from the current month to the year-end.
I've tried this two ways and found the same results:
1. charting a monthly rate and using the "Quick Table Calculation - Running Total"
2. Editing my calculation so it's a Running_sum of the rate.
If I graph the individual monthly rates it includes all of 2011 and then 2012 stops at the current month. But when I use Running_Sum or Running Total I get the flat-line-effect until the current year end..
