## Using the date number to calculate percentage of monthly budget

Hi,

I've spilt the monthly budget into a daily budget and would like to use the date number to multiply the daily budget to give more context of what products are selling well/not selling well in the current month. Is this possible?

e.g date of month is 3rd August and daily budget is £7000 so expected sales are 3 x 7000 = 21000

Any help would be very much appreciated

Hey @Jameswh91 ,

sure, you can get the day of the month of any given date with the DAY function.

So it would be:

Budget today = DAY( TODAY() ) * 7000

If you need any help please let me know.

I don't think that will give you the desired result. Following the date will not account for weekends and holidays. etc.

What you are looking for is a measure that counts Workingdays in the current month since the start of the month along with the budget for that month. Divide those two numbers and you'll have your desired result i think.
