Conditional formula based on certain months

Hi,

I'm very new to Power BI and need help adjusting a measure. I'm working with summarized end-of-month data. So far I have this:

 

Net Worth =

DIVIDE(

    'BGLCOAF'[Reserves],

    'BGLCOAF'[Total Assets],

    0

)

 

However, [Net Worth] only calculates correctly for March, June, September, and December because every other month's calculation should include a third variable "Net Income". For example:

 

For January's calculation = ([Reserves] + [January Net Income]) / [Total Assets]

For February = ([Reserves] + [January Net Income] + [February Net Income]) / [Total Assets]

For March = [Reserves] / [Total Assets]

And the same pattern for each quarter

 

I feel like something can be accomplished with conditional functions, but I also think I need to incorporate time or time-intelligence functions and I'm pretty unfamiliar with those.

 

I appreciate any help!

Hi @mjpollock ,

 

I think your code should look like as below.

Net Worth with Condition =
IF (
    'BGLCOAF'[Month] IN { "March", "July", "September", "December" },
    DIVIDE ( 'BGLCOAF'[Reserves], 'BGLCOAF'[Total Assets], 0 ),
    DIVIDE ( 'BGLCOAF'[Reserves] + [Net Income], 'BGLCOAF'[Total Assets], 0 )
)

 

Best Regards,
