Create a measure that returns existing values before TODAY() and forecasted values after TODAY()

I have a column sales total per day from the start of the year until now (4/22/2021). Then I have projected sales all year from beginning to end (Jan 1 -> Dec 31).

 

I want to create a new column or measure which is a combination of both of these columns, where all the values before today are the actual daily sales, and all the values after today are projected daily sales, so I can plot the projected cumulative sales forecast. I just am very new to DAX and have no idea how to implement it here.

 

I would think to get the before today values with DATESINPERIOD(MIN('Table'[Date]), TODAY()), and projected values after today with DATESINPERIOD(TODAY(), MAX('Table'[Date]). But not sure how to combine. 

 


YTD PROJECTION = 
VAR NeedHelpWithMeasure = ???

 

RETURN CALCULATE(
    SUM(NeedHelpWithMeasure),
    DATESYTD( 'Table'[Date])

)

Hi, @mdatmain 

Please check the below picture and the sample pbix file's link down below.

I create a sample that hopefully suits your requirement.

All measures are in the sample pbix file, and all steps are numbered in front of each measure.
