Project Payroll Using a Specific Pay Period and Graph the Projections

Hello Friends,


I need help in projecting payroll for the next fiscal year starting in FY24 Oct ending FY24 Sep, which equates to 26 pay periods in a fiscal year.

The payroll data had just populated for pay period 09/09/2023 within specific funding buckets.  I have also built in a "what if analysis to hire at 98% which gives me 100 FTEs to hire against the authorized strength of 1170.

I wanted to measure on the graph against the actual payroll when we start the new fiscal year.

Every time I use the "FY23AVGSalarySEPASGN" formula:

     FILTER(FY23Payroll,FY23Payroll[Pay Period End Date] =DATE(2023,09,09)),
     FY23Payroll[AMOUNT PAID (DETAIL)]


to multiply against the projected assigned strength of 100

Proj to Hire = CALCULATE(
     FILTER(FY23ORG,FY23ORG[Date] >= DATE(2023,08,01) &&
     FY23ORG[Date] <= DATE(2023,08,01)


I'm not able to graph total.   Is there a better way to write the formula?

Hi @mtruong71,

Can you please share a pbix or some dummy data that keep the raw data structure with expected results? It should help us clarify your scenario and test to coding formula.
