## Average over the past 6 months

Hi guys,

I'm having trouble calculating the average for the last 6 months.

I tried this measure and was unsuccessful:

Msix month =AVERAGEX(DATESINPERIOD(visao_lancamento_setor_Tasy[DT_MOVIMENTO_ESTOQUE],LASTDATE(visao_lancamento_setor_Tasy[DT_MOVIMENTO_ESTOQUE]),-1,MONTH),[vlmovimento])

here's the example:

The measure should calculate the average of the last 6 months for each NAME  (Nome column), in this example = "Alphamed".

Hi @yforti ,

Are you trying to calculate average between last month and last 7 month? Would you please try the following measure:

``````Msix month =
AVERAGEX (
DATESINPERIOD (
visao_lancamento_setor_Tasy[DT_MOVIMENTO_ESTOQUE],
EOMONTH ( visao_lancamento_setor_Tasy[DT_MOVIMENTO_ESTOQUE], -1 ),
-7,
MONTH
),
[vlmovimento]
)``````

@amitchandak i will try to explain myself better

This is my database currently used, the column (% Sector / General Faturavel) is a calculated measure.

I need to find the (% Sector / General Faturavel) of the current month and compare it with the average of the (% Sector / General Faturavel) of the past 6 months.

I did the expected result in excel, see:

As my database does not yet have data for February, the last month with data is January, so the calculation for the column (Sum 6 previous months)= Dec2020 + Nov2020 + Oct2020 + Sep2020 + Aug2020 + Jul2020.
After the sum of the past 6 months, I averaged this sum of values. This is what I need to do in BI.

To know:
Sum previous 6 months =SUM(D8:D13)
Average previous 6 months =AVERAGE(D8:D13)

@yforti , With help from date table

Rolling 6 = CALCULATE([vlmovimento],DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],MAX('Date'[Date ]),-6,MONTH))

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.
