When I recreate in Power BI using Year-to-Date quick measure, it is not giving me the same numbers:

ridership_kpi YTD =
IF(
    ISFILTERED('agency_daily_ridership'[Merged FC]),
    ERROR("Time intelligence quick measures can only be grouped or filtered by the Power BI-provided date hierarchy or primary date column."),
    TOTALYTD(
        SUM('agency_daily_ridership'[ridership_kpi]),
        'agency_daily_ridership'[Merged FC].[Date]
    )
)

Hi,

 

Power BI asked you to create a Date Table. Without this you can not use the YTD functions

So create a date table, declare it as date and link it with your table and it will work.

Hope it helps

Hi @Anonymous , 

 

I do believe i have date table named "merged FC".

 

I think what is happening in my year to date is that it is adding every month until the end of the year. But what I need is all the sum from that month last year to the month next year.


For example sum of all ridership from August 2022 -August 2023. 

 

Not July + August.
