Average calculation of FTE with switch of YTD and MTD

Hello , I need some help please. I'm struggling to wrap my head around some DAX needed to calculate the average FTE YTD depending on the month selection

I have a selection table with value column of:

current period
YTD

 and data set 

periodFTE Actualswould like to return value for YTD
sept

60

60

oct43.8351.92
nov44.13

49.32

dec43.2747.80
Jan40.2546.29

 

my current measure for current month is correct, but the YTD is returning the sum or total of all months and not the average.
MTD YTD Switch =
switch(
    True(),
    SELECTEDVALUE(SelectionTable[Value]) = "Current Period", [FTE-Actuals],
    SELECTEDVALUE(SelectionTable[Value])="YTD",TOTALYTD([FTE-Actuals],'Calendar'[Date],"8/31"),
    [FTE-Actuals]
    )

Hi @mariomyhanh ,

 

Please try this code to create a measure.

MTD YTD Switch =
VAR _SELECTVALUE =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( SelectionTable[Value] )
VAR _MONTH =
    MONTH ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) )
VAR _MONTH_COUNT =
    IF ( _MONTH > 8, _MONTH - 8, _MONTH + 12 - 8 )
VAR _YTD =
    TOTALYTD ( SUM ( 'Table'[FTE Actuals] ), 'Calendar'[Date], "8/31" )
RETURN
    SWITCH (
        TRUE (),
        _SELECTVALUE = "Current Period", [FTE-Actuals],
        _SELECTVALUE = "YTD", DIVIDE ( _YTD, _MONTH_COUNT ),
        [FTE-Actuals]
    )

Result is as below.
