## Actual vs Forecast vs Budget Variance

Hi Team,

I am currently working in Power BI to see the variance in Matrix table for Actuals vs Budget and Actuals vs Forecast. as per the below screenshot for sample data.

I am attaching herewith the sample data for the resolution.

I have all the view but only left with the variances.

View required in Power BI.

Looking for a DAX query so that I will be able to get the Variance with this data set. If there would be any other suggestion so please let me know.

Data Set

Thanks,

Rakesh

Hi @rsharma81 - Calculate variances between Actuals vs Budget and Actuals vs Forecast in a Power BI Matrix table, you need to create measures that calculate these variances.

create measures for each, like actual , budget and forcast

Actual =
CALCULATE(
SUM(SalesData[Amount]),
SalesData[Scenario] = "Actual"
)

Variance =
[ActualAmount] - [BudgetAmount]

or

Varience = CALCULATE(SUM(FAB[Amount]),FAB[Scenerio]="Actual")-CALCULATE(SUM(FAB[Amount]),FAB[Scenerio]="Budget")

adjust the totals from format column subtotals as highlighted
