How to get the Annual benefit value for the left over months?

Calculation :

Assume a project has a “Total Benefit” per year of £120. The following table shows how to chart the annual benefit depending on the project completion date. Please help me on the DAX formula in achieving the annual benefits for the years 2022 to 2026.

Tricky solution,

Thanks to the great efforts by MS engineers to simplify syntax of DAX! Most beginners are SUCCESSFULLY MISLED to think that they could easily master DAX; but it turns out that the intricacy of the most frequently used RANKX() is still way beyond their comprehension!

DAX is simple, but NOT EASY!

Hi @CNENFRNL ,

 

But where is the Total Benefits data? For every year, we will have a total benefit value. In an example which I have explained above has a Total Benefit of 120, from which we are calculating the Annual Benefits values.


Can you please help me with the DAX, by applying Total Benefits data as well

But this is not my expected answer.

Consider the INPUT data as below, where for each Actual date we will have Total benefits.

Actual DateTotal Benefits
01-01-223000
15-02-2220000
30-06-22617000
16-01-23220000
29-09-2380000
01-05-2440000
31-12-24120000

And now, the output should be as the below table,

Actual Date202220232024
01-01-22£2750.00£3000.00£3000.00
15-02-22£16666.67£20000.00£20000.00
30-06-22£308500.00£617000.00£617000.00
16-01-230£201666.67£220000.00
29-09-230£20000.00£80000.00
01-05-240£0.00£23333.33
31-12-240£0.00£0.00

 

Calculation should be, For 1st data (i.e) 01-01-22 , Benefits starts in Feb 22 = 11 months of benefit in 2022. Formula is - (Total Benefit for that date /12) x (Remaining months of benefit)

                                          (i.e) - (3000/12) x 11= 2750  -> This is for Year 2022

For 2023, we have all 12 months of benefit in 2023. So it should be 3000. (i.e) - 3000/12 x 12

 

Please help me in achieving this approach using DAX. Thanks in advance!!
