Measure in calculating the Grand Total on Each Row on a Specific Months.

Hello,

Is the column C possible to replicate on a Measure? The 85 is the total sum of 3 months (april, may, june). I just wanted to get the total value of a specific months.

Hi @EvanGetsItDone 
Then modify it into 2 steps:

1. As you don't have a date column and your months are text, add a month number column:

MonthN = SWITCH('Table'[Month],"jan",1,
"feb",2,
"mar",3,
"apr",4,
"may",5,
"jun",6,
"jul",7,
"Aug",8,
"Sep",9,
"oct",10,
"Nov",11,
"Dec",12,
0)

2. Modify First Dax based on this column :

C = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[B]),
FILTER('Table','Table'[MonthN]=month(today()) || 'Table'[MonthN]=month(today())-1 || 'Table'[MonthN]=month(today())-2))

Hi,

Create a Calendar Table with a relationship (Many to One and Single) from the Date column of the Data Table to the Date column of the Calendar Table.  Create calculated column formulas for Year, Month name and Month number.  Sort the Month name by the Month number.  To your visual, drag Year and Month name from the Calendar Table.  Write this measure

Measure = calculate([sales],datesbetween(calendar[date],edate(eomonth(today(),-1)+1,-2),eomonth(today(),0)))

Hope this helps.

Hi @EvanGetsItDone 
You can add a calculated column with a formula :

 
C = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[B]),
FILTER('Table','Table'[Month]="Apr" || 'Table'[Month]="May" || 'Table'[Month]="Jun"))

Hello,
Thanks for the response! 
Sorry I may not have mentioned it. But I actually need the 3 months (including current month). It doesn't have to be a constant april, may, and june. I need a measure that would calculate the current month and the last 2 months. 

Thanks!
