DAX for variance

Hi,

I have a requirement to calculate financial report variance which has Actual and Forecast columns, ideally variance should be Actual-Forecast but since my user is looking for a different requirement as shown below. The forecast column for Period 1 and 2 are empty so there he wants actual to be displayed also, in periods where forecast is existing irrespective of actual values present or not he wants forecast to be displayed, which is same as "2+10" row.

Please help em to create DAX for "2+10" row DAX.

 

Any help would be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks In Advance,

Neelofar Shama.

Step 2,use the following measure:

two and ten =
var test1=if(MAX('Table'[Column3])="Actual","ten and two",MAX('Table'[Column3]))    
var test2=IF(test1<>BLANK(),test1,MAX('Table'[Column2]))  
return test2

@Anonymous , Try a measure like assuming actual and forecast are measures 

 

Measure = if(isblank([actual], [forecast],[actual])
