## Get even total average across months

Hi there,

I need help with getting an even average across the calendar months counting from the start date adding to 12 months. I have a date table connected to my data table through the "start_date".

I just need the average from the total evenly spread across the months starting from the start date for instance, please see result below.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Data:

 product total_amt start_date end_date Months a 100 4/1/2020 3/31/2021 12 b 200 1/1/2020 12/31/2020 12 c 300 2/1/2020 1/31/2021 12

Expected Result:

 product total_amt start_date end_date Months Jan-2020 feb-2020 march-2020 April-2020 May-2020 jun-2020 Jul-2020 Aug-2020 Sept-2020 Oct-2020 Nov-2020 Dec-2020 jan-2021 feb-2021 March-2021 a 100 4/1/2020 3/31/2021 12 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 8.3 b 200 1/1/2020 12/31/2020 12 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 16.7 c 300 2/1/2020 1/31/2021 12 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25 25

Hi,

Please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

``````Expected result measure: =
VAR monthscount =
COUNTROWS (
SUMMARIZE (
FILTER (
ALL ( 'Calendar' ),
'Calendar'[Date] >= MAX ( Data[start_date] )
&& 'Calendar'[Date] <= MAX ( Data[end_date] )
),
'Calendar'[Month & Year]
)
)
VAR totalamount =
SUM ( Data[total_amt] )
VAR result =
DIVIDE ( totalamount, monthscount )
RETURN
IF (
MIN ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) >= MAX ( Data[start_date] )
&& MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) <= MAX ( Data[end_date] ),
result
)
``````

@Jihwan_Kim Thank you so much. I was able to get my variables similarly to the one you had but I made the mistake of conencting my tables to the data table. This worked perfectly, thank you.
