## Return the name of the active MTD MOnth and YTD Year

I am doing some time intelligence formulae and wanted to represent the  Active MTD Month Name and Active YTD Year Value on two Cards.
How is this possible?
Thanks.

OK,

You can try something like this:

ActiveMonthNumber = MONTH(Today())
ActiveYear = YEAR(Today())
ActiveMonthText = FORMAT(TODAY(), "MMM")

Hi @Datagulf ,

Assuming you are using a date table with month and year in it, you can do something like this

Active Month= SelectedValue(Datetable[Month])

Active Year= SelectedValue(Datetable[Year])
