## DAX calculation with incremental value

Hello,
I am trying to calculate the "Forecast Value" based on the "Color" below.
What would be the DAX formula for this?

I doubt you can do the logic and cumulative sum in one dax. You can create a logic column then get the forecast value in a measure.

forecastlogic column=
var logic = SWITCH([Color],"Red",1,"Green",2,"Blue",3)
Return IF([Initial Value]=100,100,logic)

Forcast value = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[forecastlogic]),FILTER(ALL('Table'),[YearMonth]<=MAX([YearMonth])))

A calculated column is definitely recommended here but you can do without if you need to (e.g. if the color values are dynamic).

``````Forcast (AO) =
VAR MaxDate = MAX ( Table1[YearMonth] )
VAR ColorScores =
SUMMARIZE (
FILTER ( ALL ( Table1 ), Table1[YearMonth] <= MaxDate ),
Table1[YearMonth],
Table1[Color]
),
"@Init", CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table1[Initial Value] ) ),
"@Incr", SWITCH ( Table1[Color], "Red", 1, "Green", 2, "Blue", 3 )
)
RETURN
SUMX ( ColorScores, MAX ( [@Init], [@Incr] ) )``````

See attached.

If you have one color per month, then you can calculate the final forecasted value over a selected period like this:

``````Forcast =
VAR ColorScores =
SUMMARIZE ( Table1, Table1[Month], Table1[Color] ),
"@Incr", SWITCH ( Table1[Color], "Red", 1, "Blue", 2, "Green", 3 )
)
RETURN
[InitialValue] + SUMX ( ColorScores, [@Incr] )``````

I don't think the above code works...
Am I missing something?

The forecast total works as I intended. You have to do a bit more work to get the months to work like a cumulative total.

Something more like this:

``````Forcast =
VAR MaxDate = MAX ( Table1[Date] )
VAR InitialValue = CALCULATE ( SUM ( Table1[InitialValue] ), Table1[Date] <= MaxDate )
VAR ColorScores =
SUMMARIZE (
FILTER ( Table1, Table1[Date] <= MaxDate ),
Table1[Month],
Table1[Color]
),
"@Incr", SWITCH ( Table1[Color], "Red", 1, "Blue", 2, "Green", 3 )
)
RETURN
InitialValue + SUMX ( ColorScores, [@Incr] )``````

I am getting the same result

Probably because you have Year and Month context in your visual rather than just Date.

You can wipe out all of the filter context with ALL.

``````Forcast =
VAR MaxDate =  MAX ( Table1[Date] )
VAR InitialValue =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table1[InitialValue] ),
FILTER ( ALL ( Table1 ), Table1[Date] <= MaxDate )
)
VAR ColorScores =
SUMMARIZE (
FILTER ( ALL ( Table1 ), Table1[Date] <= MaxDate ),
Table1[Month],
Table1[Color]
),
"@Incr", SWITCH ( Table1[Color], "Red", 1, "Blue", 2, "Green", 3 )
)
RETURN
InitialValue + SUMX ( ColorScores, [@Incr] )
``````
