I have a calculation returning the total delivery fees we've collected divided by the number of enrollments during any given period of time.
I tried creating a YoY % change calculation, but it's not returning accurate numbers.
Here's the formula for YoY % change:
Hi @erikriesenberg ,
Please provide me with more details about your table and your problem or share me with your pbix file after removing sensitive data.
When calculating YoY% of "Averages", we usually have this problem because the DAX try to calculate average for each section. Try creating a variable for Average and then see if it works:
I tried that, but I'm receiving the following error message:
The syntax for 'IF' is incorrect. (DAX(VAR _average = [Delivery Fees Per Enrollment]IF( ISFILTERED('Dates'[Date]), ERROR("Time intelligence quick measures can only be grouped or filtered by the Power BI-provided date hierarchy or primary date column."), VAR __PREV_YEAR = CALCULATE( _average, DATEADD('Dates'[Date].[Date], -1, YEAR) ) RETURN DIVIDE( _average - __PREV_YEAR, __PREV_YEAR)))).
I found the error in the DAX, this is the new DAX formula:
Can you try Returning the __PREV_YEAR variable from your orginal formula and see if it is 233 for the month in discussion?
Yes, I Returned __PREV_YEAR and get 233.
I think the problem that I have is that the [Delivery Fees Per Enrollment] calculation isn't year specific.
So when it tries to run this part of the DAX
DIVIDE( _average - __PREV_YEAR, __PREV_YEAR)
the -average is pulling the Delivery Fees for all years
