## Total Calculation based on Total/Day for given Month

Can't seem to work this one out....

I have a table that has budget amount per day for a given month with a date value in the format month/1/year per Area.  Data below is for 'Area 1'

Using the per/day rate I'd like to calculate the total budget across any time period broken out by Area.  The measure below of course works for a single month across any Area, but understandably as soon as I filter across multiple months it fails.

The correct value should be 16124.58=(503.23 * 31 days in Jan.) + (524.45 * 1 day in Feb).

How do I accomplish this?

Thanks!

You are absolutely right. I overlooked the data and did not pay enough attention. I did not notice that the Tons/Day values are only in the first day while in other days are blank which is actually your original problem.
Please refer to updated file with the solution https://www.dropbox.com/t/RYcaBXfL2RcdQd5S
The code is little long. I know it can be shorter and more simple by using GENERATE function but I personally still did not learn how to use it properly. Also can be solved by adding a new calculated column. Pretty sure other methods are available out there. However this one seems to work

``````MMP_Tons =
VAR Table1 =
SUMMARIZE (
Actuals_and_MonthlyPlans,
Actuals_and_MonthlyPlans[Area],
'Calendar'[YYMM],
"@Tons", SUM ( Actuals_and_MonthlyPlans[MMP_Tons/Day])
)
VAR Table2 =
SELECTCOLUMNS (
Table1,
"@YYMM", 'Calendar'[YYMM],
"@@Tons", [@Tons]
)
VAR Table3 =
CROSSJOIN ( 'Calendar', Table2 )
VAR Table4 =
FILTER ( Table3, [YYMM] = [@YYMM] )
VAR Result =
SUMX ( Table4, [@@Tons] )
RETURN
Result``````

Please let me know if this solves your problem. Have a nice day!

Hi @troyhimes
Here is your file with the solution https://www.dropbox.com/t/lZdUKnpNp5E6wAXA
It is actually simple. you just need to iterate over the table with right granularity which is in this case, the 'Calendar' table

``````MMP_Tons =
VAR SumMMPTonDay =
SUM (Actuals_and_MonthlyPlans[MMP_Tons/Day] )
VAR Result =
SUMX (
'Calendar',
SumMMPTonDay
)
RETURN
Result``````

Hi @tamerj1 ,

Thanks for your attempt, but it looks like this yields the same result as my original measure....

Examples:

1. Date Filter=1/1/22 to 1/31/22, MMP_Tons/Day = 503.23, MMP_Tons = 15,600.01 (503.23 *31) CORRECT

2. Date Filter=2/1/22 to 2/28/22, MMP_Tons/Day = 524.45, MMP_Tons = 14,684.59 (524.45 * 28) CORRECT

3. Date Filter = 1/1/22 to 2/1/22, MMP_Tons = 32,885.62 (1027.68 * 32) INCORRECT

CORRECT VALUE = 16,124.58 = (503.23 * 31) + (524.45 * 1)

Thanks @tamerj1 , much appreciated, that did the trick.

@troyhimes , Not very clear

If this does not help
Can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

@amitchandak You're right, I wasn't very clear!  I forgot to include the "measure below".

I scanned your linked post and will check it out closely in the morning.  Prior to the measure above, I've determined the value per day using a technique similar to yours, but maybe the piece that I'm missing in the measure is the 'TotalMTD' for my day count(?)

@troyhimes .

because TotalMTD blog I shared. I need to try with data

Resolver I

Here it is. The measure in question is 'MMP_Tons'.  The plan per day for the given month is 'MMP_Tons/Day' and the date I've associated with that plan is always the 1st of the month.  For a given time period I want to calculate the planned tons based on the plan per day.
