## 6 Month Average Overall without Slicer

Hi there,

I have a measure that calculates the rolling average over 6 months which works great as below.

In my dataset it only contains 6 months so it will cut out e.g. February when August comes along.

I need to work out the overall 6 month average (which would be 650 in this case), but I still need to use the slicer for the current month. Is it possible to have a measure to work out the 6 month average overall but ignore the slicer within the measure?

This is what I have below but it isn't working,

R6 =
var NumOfMonths = 6
var LastSelectedDate = MAX(RS_Dates[DateFull])
var Period = DATESINPERIOD(RS_Dates[DateFull], LastSelectedDate,  -NumOfMonths,  MONTH)
Var Result =
CALCULATE(
AVERAGEX(
VALUES(RS_Dates[PeriodCal]),
[measure]), filter(RS_Dates, RS_Dates[PeriodCal] = LastSelectedDate)
return
Result

Turning off interactions wont work in this case as theres a measure on the same visual that requires the slicer.

@lherbert501 , First of all, if you select data of month and you need value more than that, then you slicer on an independent date table

date is joined and date 1 independent table

//Date1 is an independent Date table, Date is joined with Table
new measure =
var _max = maxx(allselected(Date1),Date1[Date])
var _min = eomonth(_max, -6) +1
return
calculate( CALCULATE(AverageX(Values('Date'[MONTH Year]),calculate(Sum('Table'[Value)))
,DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],MAX('Date'[Date ]),-6,MONTH)) , filter('Date', 'Date'[Date] >=_min && 'Date'[Date] <=_max))

Thanks so much for the reply.

The new measure that you have wrote with an extra date table gives the same result as the rolling average below.

The column in yellow is what I'm aiming for if its possible. 6 Month overall average regardless of slicer change?

Thanks
