## Average sales in fiscal year calculation

Hi guys,

I am working on an analysis to calculate average sales in every fiscal year.

Sample data:

 Year_Mth Staff Sales Sep-21 A 9 Oct-21 A 10 Nov-21 A 15 Dec-21 A 20 Jan-22 A 25 Feb-22 A 30 Dec-21 B 12 Jan-22 B 17 Feb-22 B 22

For my company, every fiscal year starts from Nov each year.

Thus, if i have a slicer to select year month Feb-22, the average sales for

staff A should be: (15+20+25+30)/4

staff B should be: (12+17+22)/3

Expected Result:

P.s.

Sales is a CALCULATED MEASURE which is Sales = sum(customer sales). (each staff has more than 100 customers)

I have tried to get the average by the two measures below:

Average = calculate(average(sum(customer sales), DATESYTD('calendar'[date],"31/10"))

Average = Averagex(VALUES('calendar'[yr_mth]), calculate(sum(customer sales),DATESYTD('calendar'[date],"31/10")))

Both do not return the correct number as per what I expected above.

May I know if anyone can help showing a formula that works this way?

Thank you!

Hi @ljx0648 ,

Create a calendar as below.

``````calendar =
CALENDARAUTO (),
"Year", YEAR ( [Date] ),
"Month", MONTH ( [Date] ),
"Year_Mth", FORMAT ( [Date], "MMM-YY" ),
"YearMonth",
YEAR ( [Date] ) * 100
+ MONTH ( [Date] ),
"Fiscal Start",
VAR _MONTH =
MONTH ( [Date] )
RETURN
IF (
_MONTH < 11,
EOMONTH ( [Date], -2 - _MONTH ) + 1,
EOMONTH ( [Date], - _MONTH + 10 ) + 1
)
)``````

Then use measure as below.

``````Average =
VAR _COUNT =
CALCULATE (
DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'calendar'[Year_Mth] ),
FILTER (
ALL ( 'calendar' ),
'calendar'[Fiscal Start] = MAX ( 'calendar'[Fiscal Start] )
&& 'calendar'[YearMonth] <= MAX ( 'calendar'[YearMonth] )
&& [Sales] <> BLANK ()
)
)
VAR _SUM =
SUMX ( DATESYTD ( 'calendar'[date], "31/10" ), [Sales] )
RETURN
IF([Sales]<>BLANK(),DIVIDE ( _SUM, _COUNT ))``````

Result is as below.
