## How to show total sales using date table in periods from date

I have a request to show data in 3 month periods,

there will be sale that started in 2016 but closed in 2022, so we need to show this as 72 months,

this will be calculated with each year starting from q1 = 3 Months, q2 = 6 Months, q3 = 9 Months and so on,.

E.g

How can this be done using dax ?

or is it better to go to sql to calculate this?

Hi @MartinDra .

You can try this method:

I create two sample tables in two years, Period table and Sales table.

Then we need to calculate the year and the quarter:

New columns:

``Year = YEAR('Sales'[Date])``
``Quar = QUARTER('Sales'[Date])``

Then

``Var = 'Sales'[Year] - MIN('Sales'[Year])``
``Index = 'Sales'[Var] * 4 + Sales[Quar] ``
``````SUMEVERYQ =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Sales[Sales] ),
FILTER (
'Sales',
'Sales'[Year] = EARLIER ( Sales[Year] )
&& 'Sales'[Quar] = EARLIER ( Sales[Quar] )
)
)
``````

For the period table,

New a column:

``M = MID('Period'[Period],1,2) / 3``

The M column need to change to the whole number format.

The result column is :

``````Result =
CALCULATE (
AVERAGE ( Sales[SUMEVERYQ] ),
FILTER ( 'Sales', 'Sales'[Index] = 'Period'[M] )
)
``````

Here is my PBIX file.

Hi,

thanks. I think its close but not exactly what I need.

I need an ability to show year as well.

so we can see progression over time,

if I just have the period it only we are limited with the number of months since begining.

So in Data Warehouse side it isnt going to work.

Any ideas on how to achieve the above?
