calculating average of two numbers within a measure, if the number appears unreasonable.

Hi,

 

I have a measure which calculates the odometer readings of each vehicle. I use it with the month columns from my date table to see the odometer reading for each month. The issue is that because staff often type inaccurate odometer readings, some of the data does not make sense. For example, odometer readings for July in one instance is 40,000, then for August is 100,000 and then for September is it 45,000. So I clearly know that for August the data is inaccurate. How can I write a measure which takes the average of the months with 'normal' data and uses it in the month where data is unreasonable (so in the above eg, I would want to see 42500 for August ((40,000 + 45000)/2)).

@musafasih , example with time intelligence

Next and Previous = (CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,MONTH))) + CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],1,MONTH))))/2

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.
