      HI.

      I need to create a graph which shows sales and profit for the period of 2 months. So the aliases that I need to show is like this

       

      Present Week, Previous Week, Previous Week-1 and so on. How to achieve this. I thought of comparing the present date, but couldn't figure out how to add it to week and then display it. Please explain in as much detail as possible.
