Helper IV

## Apply a ratio to the sales of last year.

Good ay to all,

Given the following measure used to compute the sales for last year:

Same Period Last Year = CALCULATE(
[Sales_Value],
SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(
Date_DB[Date]))
And given a table called Target_tbl with two columns:

 month ratio 1 100% 2 100% 3 100% 4 100% 5 100% 6 25% 7 25% 8 35% 9 10 11 12

Question, how to modify the measure to compute a targeted sales for each month based on the above?

Hence January this year is 100% or Jan last year, August this year is 35% of August last year.

@Cyrilbrd , Calculate like

calculate(Max(Target[ratio])) *CALCULATE(
[Sales_Value],
SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR(
Date_DB[Date]))

Make sure both target and sales tables joined with the same date table. In case of the target table does not have date create date using month year.

Hi @Cyrilbrd ,

You can set "2017" as a variable, and the template of the formula is similar to this.
In the measure, there is the concept of context, max (target)_ TBL [ratio]) represents the content of the current line.

Hi @Cyrilbrd ,

Try to create a measure like this:

``````this year sales =
CALCULATE (
[Total Sales LY] * MAX ( Target_tbl[ratio] ),
FILTER (
Dates,
Dates[Year] = 2017
&& MONTH ( Dates[Date] ) = MAX ( Target_tbl[month] )
)
)``````

Hi Liang, in your solution the year is fixed to 2017 instead of being dynamically selected by the user via a series of visualization, any way to modify that, or shall i just use the first proposed solution (that works perfectly by the way).

What I do not uderstand is the use of MAX to call for the appropriate ratio, may I ask what is the reasoning behind? MAX is used in both proposed solutions.
