I'm trying to finish up a detailed financial report but i'm running into some inconsistencies with the variance cells.
Seems to me that BI is calculating all the values as positives even when they are negative values.
Positive to positive changes work perfectly but once a negative value is dropped in it shows opposite variances.
As seen in the clip below -53,562.63 to +13,346.04 shouldn't be a negative percentage as that is a positive gain. Yet it shows it as a -125% loss. Same as -1,011.12 to -175,585.34 is a loss but yet shows a positive percentage gain of 17,265%
Here is the measure i'm using to calculate this:

@RDLOPEZ - When you divide a positive and negative number, it is negative. There needs to be a business rule as to how you want to handle these scenarios. Then you can incorporate the logic into your calculation.
Hope This Helps,
