## Measure help including circular dependency errors

Hi, Hoping someone can help me create some measures. I'm new to BI and I'm getting circular dependency errors and not sure how to resolve.

I need to show how much time each user is spending in an application per month. A sample of my data source looks like this. The Usage time represents hours.

 User Date Usage Time A 1/8/2022 1.25 A 1/12/2022 1.5 A 2/01/2022 2.5 A 2/21/2022 4.75 B 1/19/2022 3 B 2/12/2022 1.25 B 3/12/2022 1 B 3/19/2022 21.5

I tried the following measure and received a circular dependency error:

Monthly Usage = CALCULATE(SUM('table'[Usage Time]),FILTER(ALL(table[Date]),ENDOFMONTH(table[Date])))

My expected outcome is:

 User Date Usage Time A Jan 2.75 A Feb 7.25 B Jan 3 B Feb 1.25 B Mar 22.5

Once I have this figured out, I need to determine how many users meet the annual requirement of completing 20 hours by year end.
I created this measure: 2022 Goal = "20" (no error)

I created a measure for the difference because we want to measure progress too.
2022 Goal Remaining = CALCULATE([2022 Goal (in hours)]-CALCULATE(SUM('table'[Usage Time]),FILTER(ALL(table[Date]),ENDOFMONTH(table[Date]))))

How would I determine the number of users that have completed the goal vs not complete? In my sample data, User B would show Complete while User A would not. I tried
Status = IF('table'[2022 Goal Remaining]="20","Complete","Not Complete") but received the cirular dependency error.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi @user900 ,

``Total Usage = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Usage Time]),ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[User],'Table'[Date].[Year],'Table'[Date].[Month]))``
``````Status =
var _2022Goal = 20
return IF(CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Usage Time]),ALLEXCEPT('Table','Table'[User]))>=_2022Goal,"Complete","Not Complete")``````

Output:

This worked perfectly. Thank you.

@user900 , if you need data of last day of month , try like

Monthly Usage = CALCULATE(SUM('table'[Usage Time]),FILTER(ALL(table[Date]),table[Date] = EOmonth(table[Date],0)))
