"Creating a dashboard"

I am working with a MySQL database that is collecting revenue information by transaction and by location. I hope to create a dashboard that can automatically show trend data like: Last 12mo total revenue, last 7 days, and be able to filter the charts by the city the sale happened. I run any major statistical packages on are there are tutorials that aim more for this purpose (most tutorials ive seen are more for complex and predictive analysis)?

    Are you meaning the dashboards & reports you can create with RapidAnalytics?

    Indeed, but the one area I am having particular trouble with is how to set a range. I have a dataset where I hope to make the transaction date the ID. Eventually I want to be able to then filter out the last 7 days worth of transactions and add together in a "last 7 day revenue" type of figure (it be awesome if I could have it recognize today and run back 7 days), but if it has to be manually inputted every time (through a macro or something else) that should be fine for now.

    Hi Peter,
    that is easily possible with for example Generate Attributes. You can do there complex date operations and create a column named for example "keep" and put in a value "yes" or "no". and then Filter accordingly using a Filter Examples with Value Filter.
