Daily Average up to today

My average matters per day is not stopping on the current day.


Avg Per Day = DIVIDE([Matters],SUM(Dates[IsWorkday]))
where IsWorkday = IF(ISBLANK(Dates[Holiday]),IF(Dates[DayOfWeekNumber]>1&&Dates[DayOfWeekNumber]<7,1,0),0)
and Matters = COUNT(BillingData[Item])
So today is the 27th of the month. So there are There are 18 of 20 work days completed for the month. How do I factor that in to my avarage and not affect previous months.
Any help appreciated.

Avg Per Day = DIVIDE([Matters],SUM(Dates[IsWorkday]))



Matters = COUNT(BillingData[Item])

I expect the result to show an average per day for March of 1, becuase only one day has passed in March. Right now it is showing the result of 1/20 = 0.05 becasue there are 20 work days in March. It should show 1/1 = 1.


Today is 1 March.
