## YTD Month count to create moving target

I have seen simular questions, however it is still not working the way I want.

I would like to create a measure that devides my target by 12 and grows by the number of months.

Than when I put it in a bar chart together with my actual data it will show the difference. Like in the picture below:

So if the target is "1200" and today is "13 March" the target will show "300"

Something like this...may be

```Measure =
VAR Target = 1200
RETURN
Target * MONTH ( SELECTEDVALUE ( Table1[Date] ) )
/ 12```

I don't really get what you mean, because the formula is not working.

Besides I have the target 1200 already in a table:

Person       Catogary       Target           |           Calculated column

Person A      A                   1200             |                300

Person A      B                   1400              |               117

Person B      A                   800                |               67

Person B      B                   1400              |               117

Maybe it would be better to make a calculated column as shown above. In this example it is still March

How would I do that?

## Re: YTD Month count to create moving target

I have been trying some things and came to the following formula:

`YTD Target = ('Table'[Target]/12)*MONTH(TODAY())`

And it shows the right values. So according to the sample above the value shows (given the fact it is januari now):

Person       Catogary       Target           |           Calculated column

Person A      A                   1200             |                100

Person A      B                   1400              |               116,66

Person B      A                   800                |               66,66

Person B      B                   1400              |               116,66

However, I am not sure if in february the column will change to:

200

233,33

133,33

233,33

Is there a way I can check this? Or does anyone know if this is the right formula to get the desired result?

Hi,

Your formula should ideally be a measure (not a calculated column formula).  It will be ideal to have a date column in your base data.  Do you not have that?  Also, what do you wnat to show on the X-axis?

I do have a seperate calander table. What do you mean with a date column?

On the X-axis I want to show the reason of visit as discussed in this topic: Create column filled with measures

Hi,

Your formula should work.  Write that as a measure though instead of a calculated column formula.
