Need help with getting the next 9 month date

Hi,

I have a date field and I need to identify the next multiple of 9 months since that date and it has to be after the current date, so for example:

Date = 9th March 2018

I need the next multiple of 9 months after this date after today, so:

it would be 9th Sept 2019. The first multiple of 9 months after the original date would be 9th Dec 2018 which is before today's date, so I have to add another 9 months until the date is after today.

My dates go back to 2002.

I have no idea where to start on this one. Has anyone got any ideas or has come across something similar at all?

Many thanks,

Andy

Hi @Anonymous

Assuming you have the date in a column Date in Table1, create a calculated column:

```NewCol =
VAR Jumps_ =
QUOTIENT ( DATEDIFF ( Table1[Date], TODAY (), MONTH ), 9 )
RETURN
IF (
EDATE ( Table1[Date], Jumps_ * 9 ) = TODAY (), //Check whether today is exactly 9N months away
TODAY (),
EDATE ( Table1[Date], ( Jumps_ + 1 ) * 9 )
)```

Thanks @AlB , although I didn't use your exact solution (there were other issues as to why), part of it gave me an idea and I used some of it as part of the solution to get the result I needed. Thank you so much for replying and giving me that point in the right direction.
