## How calculate forecast on YTD with the last values

Hi ,

how to calculate a kind of forecast based on the last value of the month with data ?

Take for example with this dataset :

we would like to have this YTD + forecast measure, which recovers the last existing monthly value and adds it up each month, dynamically.

Hi @Cobra77

`Monthnum = MONTH([Date])`

```Measure = var a = MAX('Calendar'[Monthnum])-6
Return
IF([Sales YTD]=BLANK(),20*a+[Sales (YTD) basic],[Sales YTD])```
