## DAX repeating values

Hello,

I am creating a forecast by averaging the previous 6 months data. I can get those values no problem. However, I want to repeat next month's forecast for the upcoming months. For example, I would like December 2022 value to repeat for January 2023, February 2023, etc. I tried taking the MAX value from the Incidents Forecast measure, but you cannot use that function on a measure. Any suggestions on how? Thank you!

DAX measures:

Incidents Forecast =
VAR IncLM = CALCULATE([Incidents Average per Year Month], DATEADD(Dates[Date], -1, MONTH))

VAR Inc2M = CALCULATE([Incidents Average per Year Month], DATEADD(Dates[Date], -2, MONTH))

VAR Inc3M = CALCULATE([Incidents Average per Year Month], DATEADD(Dates[Date], -3, MONTH))

VAR Inc4M = CALCULATE([Incidents Average per Year Month], DATEADD(Dates[Date], -4, MONTH))

VAR Inc5M = CALCULATE([Incidents Average per Year Month], DATEADD(Dates[Date], -5, MONTH))

VAR Inc6M = CALCULATE([Incidents Average per Year Month], DATEADD(Dates[Date], -6, MONTH))

Return

DIVIDE((IncLM+Inc2M+Inc3M+Inc4M+Inc5M+Inc6M+), 6)

Cumulative Forecast =

IF(ISBLANK([Incidents Average per Year Month]), [Incidents Forecast], [Incidents Average per Year Month])

@Benedict21 , Try a measure like using Incidents Forecast measure

calculate(lastnonblankvalues(Date[Date], [Incidents Forecast]), filter(all(Date), Date[Date] <= max(date[Date]) )

Hi,

Thank you, but the results are 0s and 1s.

I tried using this measure; however, it is not providing the correct result.

Test =
CALCULATE(

LASTNOTBLANKVALUE('Dates'[Date], [Incidents Forecast]), FILTER(ALL('Dates'[Date], [Date] <=MAX('Dates'[Date])))

@Benedict21 ,
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

I sent you a message with a link to the pbix. Thanks!

Hi! Thank you so so much for your help! I recreated the file with test data. I have 5 columns:
Date

Count of Incidents

Count Incidents Sum (measure)
Count Incidents rolling average (measure)

Cumulative Forecast (measure)

I want to repeat the forecasted value for the next month (9 in this case), and not continue the rolling average. So Jan 2023, Feb 2023, Mar 2023, etc., should all equal 9.

Thank you again for your help!
