## Automatic Cumulated Delta

Hello,

i created the following table (please do not consider the chronology).

I calculated the column "%"  with the follwing measure:

% = IF(ISBLANK(Tabelle1[2019 J]);BLANK();DIVIDE(Tabelle1[2019 J]-Tabelle1[2018 J];Tabelle1[2018 J]))

I have two questions:

1. Now i want a second colum hat calculate the cumulated the delta. If August of the new year is blank then calculate the sum from 2019 September - Dezember and compare it with the sum from 2018 September - Dezember. If only April is blank then compare the sum from September - August etc. Do you understand the logic?

2. It is possible to avoid the calculation for the entire figures? It only make sense when both years are full.

Hi @Wedding55 ,

For the scenario, I created a measure to implement. You can download my sample and have a try.

• create an index column based on the column of month in Power Query
• create a measure
```2019-2018 cumulated values =
var a = CALCULATE(MAX('Table'[Index]),FILTER('Table','Table'[2019] = BLANK()))
var new = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[2019]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index] <= MAX('Table'[Index]) && 'Table'[Index] > a  ))
var last =  CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[2018]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Index] <= MAX('Table'[Index]) && MAX('Table'[2019]) <> BLANK()))
return
new - last```

Is this what you want? If not, please share more details and post a dummy file. Then we can help you as soon as possible.

Hi Xue Ding,

sorry for the delay. It works good in your file. In my file i have one column with the turnover from the last 3 finacial years. I sort them in different columns with the measure:

= CALCULATE(Sum('Übersicht'[Umsatz]);DATESBETWEEN('Übersicht'[Datum];"01.07.2017";"30.06.2018"))

So i have a column for each fiscal year. I can´t work with them in your meausre. I think beacuse its already calculated or what do you think?

Best Regards
