## IF function that depends on month number

Hello everyone,

I need to calculate Return on assets ratio as annual but don't know how to write IF funcion that depends on month number in table below

ROA = DIVIDE(CALCULATE(SUM(UK_DB[Sum, Eur]),UK_DB[Item]="Net profit"), CALCULATE(SUM(UK_DB[Sum, Eur]),UK_DB[Item]="Assets"))*IF([Date][month]=3;4;IF([Date][month]=6;2;IF([Date][month]=9;1.3333;1)

Hi. I'll help you with the IF statement taking actual/current date regarding the row context of a visualization. I have added comments to help you. It would be a good idea to use variables. You can find your IF with variables and the __better_if that is kind of a better solution for that in case you want to replace it.

``````ROA =
VAR __current_date = SELECTEDVALUE( Table[Data] ) //Your table example specifies column data as date. This gets the current date in row context
VAR __month = MONTH (__current_date) //if your column is type date you can do this to get the month
VAR __if_condition =
IF(__month = 3, 4
, IF(__month = 6, 2
, IF(__month = 9, 1.3333, 1
)
)
)
VAR __better_if = // this would be a better way to handle the if
SWITCH (__month
, 3, 4
, 6, 2
, 9, 1.333
,1
)
RETURN
DIVIDE(
CALCULATE( SUM( UK_DB[Sum, Eur] ), UK_DB[Item] = "Net profit" )
, CALCULATE( SUM(UK_DB[Sum, Eur]), UK_DB[Item] = "Assets" )
) * __if_condition``````
