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

 period FTE Actuals would like to return value for YTD sept 60 60 oct 43.83 51.92 nov 44.13 49.32 dec 43.27 47.80 Jan 40.25 46.29

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.
