## YTD calculation

Hi everyone,

I need to calculate:

1.-  YTD both columns 2016 and 2017

2.-  % variation 2017 vs 2016  should be -17% 2016=209.300, but it's wrong.

This is the actual formula, the 2017 is correct data but 2016 should be YTD 5/11/2017 too.

2016=CALCULATE(SUM('table'[transactions];'table'[year] IN { 2016})

2017=CALCULATE(SUM('table'[transactions];'table'[year] IN { 2017})

¿What is the correct calculation YTD?

This is a date table example.

Thank you very much.

## Re: YTD calculation

Measure = CALCULATE ( Value , DATESYTD ( 'Date' [Date]))

Assume you have a date dimension table named "Date".  This should work for you...

## Re: YTD calculation

@MontsePuig,

Could you please share the raw sample data of your table? We need to verify if the Month field comes from your fact table or date table.

Besides, I am not very clear about the logic you use to calculate  % variation 2017 vs 2016 , how do you get -17% and 209300 based on the data in the above Matrix visual?

Hi,

In your image, the YTD transactions have declined in March 2016 and April 2017.  How is that possible?  Share your sample dataset and also show the expected result.

Hi Lydia, Thank you very much for your help.

Here you are the raw data link, I have used Matrix Visualization.

% variation 2017 vs 2016 MTD should be -17% , calculation (174.350 /209.300)-1

% variation 2017 vs 2016 YTD should be 28%, calculation (16.556320/12.929.820)-1

## Re: YTD calculation

Create the following columns in your table.

max = MAX(Hoja1[Date])

Column = DATE(YEAR(Hoja1[max])-1,MONTH(Hoja1[max]),DAY(Hoja1[max]))

Then create the following measures in your table.

YTD For 2016 = CALCULATE(SUM(Hoja1[Transactions]),FILTER(Hoja1,Hoja1[Date]<=MAX(Hoja1[Column])))

YTD For 2017 = CALCULATE(SUM(Hoja1[Transactions]),FILTER(Hoja1,YEAR(Hoja1[Date])= YEAR(TODAY())))

% Variation 2017 vs 2016 YTD = ([YTD For 2017]/[YTD For 2016])-1

2016Nov = CALCULATE(SUM(Hoja1[Transactions]),FILTER(Hoja1,Hoja1[Date]<=MAX(Hoja1[Column]) && MONTH(Hoja1[Date])=MONTH(TODAY())))

2017Nov = CALCULATE(SUM(Hoja1[Transactions]),FILTER(Hoja1,YEAR(Hoja1[Date])= YEAR(TODAY())&&MONTH(Hoja1[Date])=MONTH(TODAY())))

% Variation 2017 vs 2016 for Nov = ([2017Nov]/[2016Nov])-1

## Re: YTD calculation

Hi Lydia, thank you very much for your help.

I understand your idea, I have reproduced your instructions but I think something is wrong. The result of YTD For 2016 and YTD For 2017 are very high numbers.

In my example, the numbers are correct but I don't know how to calculate variation % YTD in a current Month (November)

Here you are a .pbix file

Thank you very much,
