Payback calculation

Hello i have to calculate the payback period per TEST and ID  using the following equation (usgin DAX):

 

PayBack = Last year with negative accumulated cash flow  +  (absolute value of the last negative accumulated cash flow / cash flow value in the following period)

 

The data is in the following table:

IDTESTYEARCASH FLOWACCUMULATED CASH FLOW
011-5.446.900,00-$ 44.963.300,00
01248.374.800,00$ 67.583.600,00
01334.778.600,00$ 143.859.400,00
01424.837.100,00$ 192.896.790,00
01515.513.500,00$ 217.445.668,00
0167.799.090,00$ 223.557.968,00
1021-5.418.360,00-$ 44.933.160,00
102248.228.600,00$ 67.559.840,00
102335.021.100,00$ 144.020.240,00

102515.350.400,00$ 217.839.289,00

Re: Payback calculation

Hi @OscarSuarez10 

Measure = 
VAR Year_ = CALCULATE(MAX(Table1[YEAR]);Table1[ACCUMULATED CASH FLOW] < 0)
VAR Numerator_ = CALCULATE(DISTINCT(Table1[ACCUMULATED CASH FLOW]);Table1[YEAR] = Year_) 
VAR YearNext_ = CALCULATE(MIN(Table1[YEAR]);Table1[YEAR] > Year_)
VAR Denominator_ = CALCULATE(DISTINCT(Table1[CASH FLOW]);Table1[YEAR] = YearNext_)
RETURN
Year_ + DIVIDE(Numerator_; Denominator_)
