Hey @Anonymous ,

 

I use this DAX statement to create a table

 

Fact Projection = 
var CalendarMax = MAX( 'Calendar'[Date] )
var fact = 
SELECTCOLUMNS(
    GENERATE(
        'Billing'
        , var ContractStart = 'Billing'[Begindate]
        var ContractEnd = IF(ISBLANK('Billing'[Untildate]) , CalendarMax , 'Billing'[Untildate] )
        var MonthUntilContractEnd = DATEDIFF( ContractStart , ContractEnd , MONTH )
        var NoOfMonth = 
            SWITCH( 
                'Billing'[Period]
                , "Month" , 1
                , "Quarter" , 3
                , "Year" , 12
            )
        return
            ADDCOLUMNS(
                GENERATESERIES( 1 , TRUNC( DIVIDE( MonthUntilContractEnd , NoOfMonth ) , 0) + 1 , 1 )
                , "Date Projected" , DATE( YEAR( [Begindate] ) , MONTH( 'Billing'[Begindate] ) + ( [Value] - 1 ) * NoOfMonth , DAY( 'Billing'[Begindate] ) )
            )
    )
    , "Contrac" , [Contract]
    , "Amount" , [Amount]
    , "Date Projected" , [Date Projected]
)
return
fact

 

 

This is how the relationships look like I created based on your sample file:

And this is how a matrix visual looks like

  • Contract from the Billing table on rows
  • Year and Month from the Calendar table on columns
  • Amount from the new fact table as Values

How it works
I create a table "Fact Projection" based on information of the billing table, the number of rows per contract is determined by the period of the contract and the end of the contract or if the end of the contract is missing by the end of the calendar. Basically the number of months is determined by an integer division, the number of months divided by the monhts that are forming the period.

Then I'm using this information to "calculate" the projection date. Very helpful is the following DAX

 

Date( 2021 , 1 + 12 , 11 )

 

Creates the date of the 11th of January 2022.

 

Hopefully this provides what you are looking for.

 

Regards,

Tom

Hey @Anonymous ,

 

here you will find a blog that describes  my solution wih some more words:

Events and projections - Mincing Data - Gain Insight from Data (minceddata.info)

and here I create the additonal fact table using Power Query and some hacky M:

Events and projections, using M - Mincing Data - Gain Insight from Data (minceddata.info)

 

Maybe you will find this interesting.

 

Regards,

Tom

Hey @Anonymous ,

 

please prepare a pbix file with sample data, that still reflects your data model, at least the table that holds the contract information. Upload the file to onedrive or dropbox and share the link. If you are using an xlsx to prepare the sample data and share the link.

 

Regards,
Tom
