## Count running accruals

Hi all,

I am want to make a measure that counts the current running accruals of a company. Here's how the raw data would look like on the left, and I plan to arrange the data like this on the right:

From the arranged data, what should happen is that the measure will count the instances where an accrual is incurred from the most recent AfP period which is "10", and the measure will stop counting if the there is a 0 or blank encountered. If the value returned from the most recent period is zero or blank, the measure will not count or should return a value of 0. The expected result of the measure should be like this:

Any kind of help is appreciated. Thank you!

Hi @jmjang ,

Is that the excepted result you need?

```Measure 3 =
SUMX (
FILTER (
ALL ( Table2[Supplier] ),
Table2[Supplier] <= MAX ( Table2[Supplier] )
),
[Measure 2]
)
```

Hi @jmjang ,

To create a measure as below.

```Measure =
VAR maxmonth =
MAXX ( ALL ( Table1 ), Table1[Month] )
VAR maxmonth0 =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( Table1[Month] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( Table1 ), Table1[Cost] = 0 ),
VALUES ( Table1[Supplier] )
)
VAR a =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table1[Cost] ), FILTER ( Table1, Table1[Month] = maxmonth ) )
RETURN
IF (
a = 0,
0,
CALCULATE (
COUNT ( Table1[Cost] ),
FILTER ( Table1, Table1[Month] > maxmonth0 && Table1[Month] <= maxmonth )
)
)
```

## Re: Count running accruals

What if I have multiple entries of cost for one period/month, what would I add into the measure? My actual raw data is like this:

The cost type is categorized into two types: Accrual and Actual. I've added a filter to consider only the Accrual cost and replaced the columns appropriate to my data, and when I inserted the measure, the result looked like this:

## Re: Count running accruals

I can only send dummy/sample data, found in "Table 2". You can find the PBIX file here.

I added more than one data entry per period and also added cost type "Actual" to resemble my original raw data.

Thank you.

Hi @jmjang ,

```LRA =
VAR k =
FILTER ( Table2, Table2[type] = "accrual" )
VAR maxmonth =
MAXX ( ALL ( Table2 ), Table2[Month] )
VAR maxmonth0 =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( Table2[Month] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( Table2 ), Table2[Cost] = 0 ),
VALUES ( Table2[Supplier] ),
KEEPFILTERS ( k )
)
VAR a =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table2[Cost] ),
FILTER ( Table2, Table2[Month] = maxmonth ),
KEEPFILTERS ( k )
)
RETURN
IF (
a = 0,
0,
CALCULATE (
DISTINCTCOUNT ( Table2[Month] ),
FILTER ( Table2, Table2[Month] > maxmonth0 && Table2[Month] <= maxmonth ),
KEEPFILTERS ( k )

## Re: Count running accruals

The result is almost realized. Apologies, I forgot to mention that the accruals for each company, per period should be displayed as a running total. I think I have to edit this part of the code?

```VAR maxmonth0 =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'Central (FLO)'[AfP] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( 'Central (FLO)' ), 'Central (FLO)'[Company code amount] = 0 ),
VALUES ( 'Central (FLO)'[Company Name] ),
KEEPFILTERS ( k )```
