    Simple Manual Trend Calculations... Do They Exist?

    Ben Perlman

      I was reading about trend lines and some newer features in 10.2 versions onwards.  I have 2018.1 and wondering if there are any simple trend calculations (looking for something to return a string based on what is in view: trending upward or trending downward).  I'm not advanced enough to know the differences between corr, window_corr, stdev, etc.  If there isn't a more simple way to calculate the overall slope of a line based on the dates selected in the view, that's okay.  If there is, please let me know!

       

      It would be one metric, such as sum of sales, and date.  Looking for overall slope of line, without using the show trend line option, just want a manual calc
