## Acumulated value using measures for YTD

Hi Everyone,

I'm having problems with the acumulated value coming from measures.

As you can see in the picture, the last comumn (YTD) should be :
13,06 (13,06 from first month)

25,57 (13,06 +12,64 from second month)

. . .

The [AVG net price] is a measure that contains a division between two measures.

The [AVG net net price] is a measure that contains a division between two measures.+

The [Delta net vs net net] is the [AVG net price] - [AVG net net price].

These three columns are OK, the values are like I want them but the problem is that those values are not "stored" they are not acumulated so I cant take the values from the [Delta net vs net net]  and make a YTD because what Power Bi is doing is going down until the first measure, [AVG net price]  and making an average of the first and second value, then is dividing those averages and bringing me the average instead of the sum, this is more or less whats happening here.

So what I need is to storage in some way the data of those 3 columns to use that data and calculate the YTD, Paralel or whatever.

I already tried the same logic but using the fields directly from the table and everything works, because the data is stored but when I try the same logic with measures the YTD never works because is not acumulating the data.

Someone can help me with this?

Thanks

@tsynenkyy , Try like

YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUMX(values('Date'[Month Year]),[Avg Net Price]),DATESYTD('Date'[Date],"12/31"))

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.
