## Currency conversion Issue

Hi everyone,

I have complex formula to calculate the total sales in euro currency.

The formula is as follows:

Sales(Euro) = calculate( divide(YTD Sales Month; Exchange rate Month) - Divide( YTD Sales Month - 1 ; Exchange rate Month -1)) Exampl for Sales (Euro)of February= calculate(Divide( YTD Sales february ; Exchange rate February) - Divide( YTD Sales Janyary ; Exchange Rate January))

And for that i have three tables Sales_Table, CurrencyExchange_Table(date, local currency and value in euro) and Calendar Table. How you'r modeling this situation??!! (for me it gives me wrong total in case of sample formula as described or wrong results when i use Sumx and previous YTD)

Hi @dkozak

Assume "euro value" in my test file refers to value in euro per local currency unit.

So we could consider "euro value" as Exchange rate.

1.create two columns

`connected_cl1 = [date]&[local currency]# in rate table`
`connected_cl2 = [date]&[country]#in sales table`

2. create relationship between "sales table" and "rate table"

3. to get total sales in euro currency per month in a year

add [year],[month] from "calendar" table into the matrix "row" field,

create a measure and add it into "value" field of the matrix.

`euro sales = MAX(sales[sales value])*MAX('rate table'[euro value])`

Hello @v-juanli-msft ,

Thanks for your response, you find bellow the link to the PBix file and also the twos sources files( i put all files to let you even prupose a new modeling if i didn't correctly).

after lot and lot of try and Just to remind the problem: the problem is that we can't work with totalYTD and TotalYTD(previousmonth()) inside a Sumx(table, expression)

using the files in the drive(Sales file, Currency rates exhange file) my manager need the Sales reports in euro currency and using this formula of exchanging ( Sales Euro Month=  divide(total sales YTD Month; Currency Exchange Rate Month) - divide(total sales YTD Month-1; Currency Exchange Rate Month-1)

Example: Sales Euro February =  divide(total sales YTD February; Currency Exchange Rate February) - divide(total sales YTD January; Currency Exchange Rate January).
