YTD all employees

Good afternoon,

 

I have a formula to retrieving the count of employees entering the company for YTD. The formula works in most instances with the exception of a month when there's no type of employees (trans in, new hire, contractor).  How can I retrieve and show the last available count within that month even if the type of employee is blank?

 

The formula is as followed:

04_YTD_IN = 
Var MaxMonth = IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date].[Month]) <> BLANK(), SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date].[MonthNo]), MAX('Date'[Date].[MonthNo]))
var MaxYear = FORMAT(MAX('Date'[Date]), "YYYY")
var c_Formula = CALCULATE(SUM(HC[Core HC]), HC[EMP_IN] <> BLANK(), ALL('Date'), HC[YearNum] = MaxYear, VALUE(HC[MonthNum]) <= MaxMonth)
return
c_Formula

I have a date table with a relationship to my fact table called HC that counts the number of employees coming in from column EMP_IN. 

 

In the image below, the count is 49 for April but I'm only seeing a total of 42.

In the next image below, the count is 69 for May and it's populated correctly when all the fields are present.

So, the question is, how do I get 7 New Contractors from March to appear in April when it's blank? Thanks for the help!!!

Sorry for the late reply,

 

Realizing that the default YTD and custom YTD does not return all cumulative data within the date range I learned that switching over to DATESBETWEEN and ALL did the trick. For those wondering on the solution I came up with, here it is:

 

04_YTD_IN = 
var MaxYear = MAX(HC[YearNum])
var end_Date = DATEVALUE(SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date].[MonthNo]) & "/1/" & MAX('Date'[Date].[Year]))
var MinDate = CALCULATE(FIRSTDATE('Date'[Date]), ALL('Date'), HC[YearNum] = MaxYear)
return
CALCULATE(SUM(HC[Core HC]), FILTER(ALL(HC[EMP_IN]), HC[EMP_IN] <> BLANK()), ALL('Date'), DATESBETWEEN('Date'[Date], MinDate, end_Date))
