Calculate compound increased fee from initial start date (Power Query)

Hi there,

 

Having the below sample dataset within a query, I have a monthly transaction record for each Contract reference number, along with the contract's initial fee for the fiirst year, and then the percentage escalation that is to be applied year on year.

 

The CalculatedFee column is the one I wish to calculate.

 

I suspect that in addition to using the InitialFee and ContractAnnualEscalation values, I would first need to determine the number of months/years between the TransactionDate and the ContractStartDate.  I'm having a few challenges with this (a Duration.Months function would be nice), however notwithstanding this, I'm at a loss at how to calculate the new compounded fee for each year.

 

ContractRef#   TransactionDate  ContractStartDate  ContractEndDate   InitialFee     ContractAnnualEscalation   (CalculatedFee)

Calculated Fee = 
'Table'[InitialFee]
    * POWER (
        1 + 'Table'[ContractAnnualEscalation],
        DATEDIFF (
            CALCULATE (
                FIRSTDATE ( 'Table'[ContractStartDate] ),
                ALLEXCEPT ( 'Table', 'Table'[ContractRef#] )
            ),
            'Table'[TransactionDate],
            YEAR
        )
    )

I had several versions of this - it seems this is the simplest so far!

Hope this helps! Smiley Happy

Thanks @Sean - I truly appreciate the effort you took in testing different scenarios. Your suggested code works like a charm!

a wholly different approach would be to create a new separate table by DISTINCT Year; so there would be 1 record per year.

 

then calculate the fee as part of this table.

 

it might be useful in your data model in the long run, and can then also be joined back into your original table if you need the value with each record.

The separate table approach could be helpful if the interest rate changes. Although you can still handle this with a single table using iterators.

Even if you create another table the formula remains basically the same Smiley Happy
