Forecast modeling for Financials

I have actuals coming in to my model each month. I also have a forecast for the remiander of the year. How can I build a equation that will work in power BI like I have in excel.

 

=($AE56-SUM($S56:W56))*(X51/SUM(X51:$AD51))

AE56 is total bestView

s56-w56 is actuals

X51 is June % of spread

x51-ad51 is % of each month without actuals only forecast

I have built measures to give me %. and measures to take bestView-actuals.

Hi @CraigMoran ,

 

Not clear your model, I created the following sample data and measure. Does this match your expected output?

 

Measure = 
CALCULATE(
    SUM('Table'[Amount]),
    ALLEXCEPT( 'Table', 'Table'[Type] )
) - CALCULATE(
        SUM('Table'[Amount]),
        FILTER( ALL('Table'), 'Table'[Type] = MAX('Table'[Type]) && 'Table'[Date] < MIN('Table'[Date]) )
    ) * SUM('Table'[Value%]) / CALCULATE(
            SUM('Table'[Value%]),
            FILTER( ALL('Table'), 'Table'[Type] = MAX('Table'[Type]) && 'Table'[Date] >= MIN('Table'[Date]) )
        )

Hi @CraigMoran ,

 

What do the different rows in your data mean? Why do you use the forecast data in line 51 instead of data in line 56 for calculations?

So the 3 rows are % of actuals, budget and Bestview. So in finance we set a budget a spread it over the 12 months before the year starts. As actuals come in we have adjust the % spend in each month to hit the yearly budget amount. The slight changes are bestviews that hyappen through out the year. I hope that was a good answer to your question
