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:
 
monthratio
1

100%

2100%
3

100%

4100%
5100%
625%
725%
835%
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] )
    )
)

Sample .pbix

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.
