I am having an issue with lab 2.
I was able to do Exercises 1 & 4 with no problem. For Exercise 2: Last Year Comparison of lab 2 my results were correct for questions one, but my answer for part two was wrong and even after doing the show answer, what I entered in Power BI was correct, but my answer was wrong.
I am fairly certain that my fomula's for Exercise 3: Year to Date, all of my values are showing as zero. My theory is because the most recent data is June 30th, 2015. Is this correct? Otherwise I have used all of then hints etc.
Does any one have idea what I am doing wrong or how to fix it?

Hi, I think i'm looking too much into the question. So Lab 2 exercise 2 when you have to do last years comparison, the first step says you have to get "Total Sales" and it says to use the SUM function. in the video he uses TotalYTD. Here is where im confused. Should i use the SUM(sales[Revenue]) or should i sue the TotalYTD formula as he did?

I went through the entire "Explanation" and am still getting a Sales Var % of 0.03%. Please clarify that the explanation steps, from the Lab page, are correct. Otherwise, there is no understanding as to how the value of 2.74 has been achieved.
EDIT: Nevermind, I found the answer in another post, where it mentioned that the data type for Sales Var % simply needed to be of type Percentage. Sheesh... It was not even intuative how to change the value type.
Also removed "code" from my post...
