## How to determine the Date level for a calculation

I have an interesting problem.  I need to base a calculation on the date level (see example below) but have been unable to get the correct results.  I would like to use a single calculation but have it change based on the date hierarchy level.

Monthly
Divide(A + ( (B+C) * 12), A)

Quarterly

Divide(A + ( (B+C) * 4), A)

Yearly

Divide(A + ( B+C) , A)

Hi @gjohnston2 ,

You can create a measure as below to get it:

``````Measure =
VAR _value =
IF (
ISINSCOPE ( 'Date'[Date].[Year] )
&& NOT ( ISINSCOPE ( 'Date'[Date].[Quarter] ) ),
1,
IF (
ISINSCOPE ( 'Date'[Date].[Quarter] )
&& NOT ( ISINSCOPE ( 'Date'[Date].[Month] ) ),
4,
12
)
)
RETURN
DIVIDE ( A + ( ( B + C ) * _value ), A )``````

If the above one is not your expected result, please provide more raw data in your table MP921000 (exclude sensitive data) with Text format and your expected result with backend logic and special examples. It is better if you can share a simplified pbix file. You can refer the following link to upload the file to the community. Thank you.
