Hey,

not sure, what you are looking at, the first 6 months of your timeframe would of course show the same value.

Please have a look at this picture, and you also may to redownload my pbix file that now also contains the measures for the 6 months period:

## Re: How will I calculate Avg YTD and Avg MAT

Hey,

First I created a calculated column representing a date column in your table using this DAX statement

`Date = Date('Milupa_Input'[YEAR],'Milupa_Input'[MONTH],1)`

Maybe this DAX statement to create a Measure gets you started

```Average Volume YTD =
var currentYear = YEAR(MAX('Milupa_Input'[Date]))
var currentMonth = MONTH(MAX('Milupa_Input'[Date]))
return
CALCULATE(
AVERAGE('Milupa_Input'[VOLUME])
,FILTER(ALL('Milupa_Input'[Date])
,YEAR('Milupa_Input'[Date]) = currentYear
&& Month('Milupa_Input'[Date]) <= currentMonth
)
)```

But I realized that your table contains a lot of zero values and also negative values, this may lead to an unexpected result.

Maybe this gets you started

Hey,

from your sample data I have no idea what period means and also not what MAT means.

If MAT is just a missing column in your sample data, you just have create a measure and replace Volume with MAT.

If MAT is a measure, things can become a little more complex due to the nature of the calculation.

## Re: How will I calculate Avg YTD and Avg MAT

Hey,

in your initial post, linking to your pbix file, you ask how to calculate the Average MAT YTD. From the pbix I have no idea what MAT stands for or how to calculate this, given the information in the pbix file.

Later on you ask if you can apply my DAX statement to period, once again, i have no idea what you mean by period, a mont, or a timeframe selected by a user using a slicer.

For this reason, I stated that the pbix is missing some information. The sheet you provided, does not really answer my questions, please provide another pbix if necessary that contains all the necessay data to calculate all the things you need.

You said previously that

If MAT is just a missing column in your sample data, you just have create a measure and replace Volume with MAT. ok

If MAT is a measure, things can become a little more complex due to the nature of the calculation. can you share the complex query on that of Mat Avg. Mat means (Moving Annual Total).

And in the below screenshot YTD is calculating with 6 period month. How will calculation AVG YTD with 6 period month.

Okay,

now I understand, what MAT means. But still there are questions.

Assume I want to calculate the MAT for VOLUME, what is the moving part, is it the last 12 months: For February 2015, this means calculate the MAT using the values from March 2014 to February 2015 and the Average MAT is just the average for these 12 months.
