SUMX with YTD calculation gerenates zero in TOTAL


I am using the M2 YTD measure and it simply generates zero in Total while single filtered rows are perfect.

If I embed M2 in a CALCULATE then Total will be an irrationally big number.


Thank you for your help in advance!





M1= sumx('fYFSP03T_BS 2',
IF( IFERROR(find(right(RELATED(dCustomer_API[RBCustomerID]),4),max('fYFSP03T_BS 2'[R_U_L_E_S])),0) <> 0,'fYFSP03T_BS 2'[Corrected_Value]))


M2 = sumx(filter(ALL(DimDate[Date_]),DimDate[Date_]<=max(DimDate[Date_]) && year(DimDate[Date_]) = YEAR(MAX((DimDate[Date_])))), M1 )

hi @plukacsi 

Try to add a CALCULATE  in M1 as below:

M1=CALCULATE( sumx('fYFSP03T_BS 2',
IF( IFERROR(find(right(RELATED(dCustomer_API[RBCustomerID]),4),max('fYFSP03T_BS 2'[R_U_L_E_S])),0) <> 0,'fYFSP03T_BS 2'[Corrected_Value])) )


If you still have the problem, please share your sample pbix file for us have a test.

What I have just realized that only P1 total is missing in M1  P2-P12 M1  is totally okey, but because of the 0 P1 YTDP2-P12 is wrong.


M1=CALCULATE( sumx('fYFSP03T_BS 2',
IF( IFERROR(find(right(RELATED(dCustomer_API[RBCustomerID]),4),max('fYFSP03T_BS 2'[R_U_L_E_S])),0) <> 0,'fYFSP03T_BS 2'[Value])) )


P.S.: with an other simple M1 SUM measure wo. any SUMX and filter I can see the missing element in the total line. 


Thank you for your help!






thank you, now I have a figure in total row, but unfortunately a disconnected and extreme big number.


This is a big AAS model, so Desktop version not really available.


Thank you for your further help in advance!

Try using datesytd, totalytd


YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(('Date'[Date]),"3/31"))

Last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year),"3/31"))
Last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(ENDOFYEAR(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year)),"3/31"))


To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s.
