Defer savings, allocate to 2 fiscal years

Hi experts,

Im trying to build a dax formula to allocate savings in two fiscal years, taking into account the starting date of the implementation.

For example: Description 1, the total amount of the saving is 145 K€. As the fiscal year is from 30/06 to 31/07, and the starting date is 31/01/2020, i would like to allocate the total amount in FY21 & FY22 based on the days elapsed in each fiscal year.

To make my question clearer, im attaching a screanshot of the structure of the tables and the desired output.

Thank you!!

Please provide sanitized sample data that fully covers your issue. If you paste the data into a table in your post or use one of the file services it will be easier to work with. Please show the expected outcome.

thanks @lbendlin and sorry for not being clearer in the first post.

I am attaching the excel file with my explained calculations and the pibx file in case it helps.

Thank you for providing the sample data. Couple of comments:


- Your calendar table is extremely heavy (way too many columns) yet it does not over the required date range

- Your fact table is missing the Final Date column - please add.

- your FY18 has 366 days, but your FY19 has 365 days.  Please show me the deferment formula for Description1 (or confirm you want to use a 365 proxy)

- Is it possible that values would stretch over more than two years?  If yes, please include in your sample data.
