## Calculating budget across years

Hi

I have a matrix like this in my report, that shows budget and actual costs on a project.

 2020 2020 2021 2021 Project Employee budget actual budget actual MyProject Person A 500 600 400 350 MyProject Person B 200 150 MyProject Person C 300 200 400 500 Total 800 800 1000 1000

But I'm trying to add an extra measure that shows the total variance for the entire duration of the project.

For Person A, that would be: 500 + 400 - 600 - 350 = -50.

The problem is Person B, who doesnt have any budget or costs in 2020, so the total variance is blank that year, but correct in 2021.

I want the total variance to be exactly the same each year.

Is there a way to do this?

 2020 2020 2020 2021 2021 2021 Project Employee budget actual Total variance on project budget actual Total variance on project MyProject Person A 500 600 -50 400 350 -50 MyProject Person B 200 150 50 MyProject Person C 300 200 0 400 500 0 Total 800 800 0 1000 1000 0

Hi @nimp_kp ,

You can create another new measure as below and put this new measure to replace the original measure onto the matrix visual... Please find the details in the attachment.

``````Measure =
VAR _budget =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Value] ), 'Table'[Type] = "budget" )
VAR _actual =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Table'[Value] ), 'Table'[Type] = "actual" )
RETURN
IF ( ISINSCOPE ( 'Table'[Type] ), SUM ( 'Table'[Value] ), _budget - _actual )``````

If the above one can't help you get the desired result, please provide more raw data in your table (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.

@nimp_kp , Is not

measure = sum(Table[Budget]) - Sum(Table[Actual])

or

measure = calculate(sum(Table[Budget]) - Sum(Table[Actual]), removefilters(Table[Year]))
