Second table have the target for the Fiscal Year by Teams

FY21Team A2000GRP1100
FY22Team A3500GRP2101
FY21Team B1800GRP3102

For the selected fiscal year Month of Nov 2021, 

Expected result is to

@Pbi07 , In year table, create a year-end date date based on FY


Date = Date(right([FY],2), 3, 31)  // Use + with FY wif needed  Date(right([FY],2) +1 , 3, 31) 


then refer

I am trying to get the  calculation as below

Varaince from Target =   Target from Target Table  -  Total Sales Measure 


Noticed that i mistyped the Target in the expected result.
