Help me Understand why my Total column isn't working

unnamed.png

Below is the measure and above is the values table (contracts x Fiscal Year x Cost per FY)

My values are all correct -- giving me the $$ that each contract will pay during the relavent FYs.


However, the Total column is very wrong. Appears to be giving me conCost / numDays. I would love some support to understand why this is happening and how to fix it.

(Filter FY Range returns 1 for each FY during the Contract date range. Returns blank otherwise)

Hi @Chewbaklava 

@SELECTEDVALUE returns blank at the total level for most of (if not all) the variables. Even if you change to MAX or MIN the result at the total level will allways be wrong.

please try

Cost per FY =
SUMX (
    VALUES ( FY[Fiscal Year] ),
    CALCULATE (
        VAR constart =
            SELECTEDVALUE ( contracts[Start] )
        VAR conEd =
            SELECTEDVALUE ( contracts[End] )
        VAR conCost =
            SELECTEDVALUE ( contracts[Total Cost] )
        VAR numDays =
            DATEDIFF ( conStart, conEnd, DAY ) + 1
        VAR daysinfy =
            DATEDIFF (
                MAX ( conStart, CALCULATE ( SELECTEDVALUE ( FY[FY Start] ) ) ),
                MIN (
                    COALESCE ( conEnd, CALCULATE ( SELECTEDVALUE ( FY[FY end] ) ) ),
                    CALCULATE ( SELECTEDVALUE ( FY[FY end] ) )
                ),
                DAY
            ) + 1
        RETURN
            IF ( [Filter Fy Range], daysinfy * conCost / numDays, BLANK () )
    )
)

Brilliant, Tysm!
