Calculate quarter as difference between YTD months

Hi all.

I've data stored in my database as YTD values, and YTD data are not a sum of months.

I'm looking for a way to calculate quaters not as an aggregation of months but as a difference between YTD values of the last month of the quarter.

Fo example:

     Expeted Result
YearQuarterMonthSales YTD AmtSales Amt 
2021 January1010 
 Q1  3534
 Q2  3839


Any ideas?

@amitchandak , I've some trouble implementing your solution. I'm using tabular with compatibility level 1400, and don't have isinscope function. I tried hasonevalue, but without success.

@ribaldo , You need a measure like this


if(isinscope(Date[Qtr]) && Not(isinscope(Date[Month])) , [sales YTD] - calculate([sales] -datesmtd( Date[Date])), blank())


Assuming you are using date table and time intelligence


YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD('Date'[Date],"12/31"))


To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.
