## YTD Calculation without Date table

Hello,

I have data which have only Period column, e.g 2024-P01, 2024-P02...., no sequential date. My dashboard has Period slicer. I have tired both below options to calculate YTD though I am getting only selected period amounts. What is that I am missing, how can I fix it?   Appreciate your expertise.

Option 1
Cost YTD =
CALCULATE(
SUM(Inventory[Total Cost]),
FILTER(
ALL(Inventory[Period]),
Inventory[Period] <= SELECTEDVALUE('Period A'[Period])
)
)

Option 2
YTD Cost =
VAR SelectedPeriod = SELECTEDVALUE('Period A'[Period])
RETURN
CALCULATE(
SUM(Inventory[Total Cost]),
FILTER(ALL(Inventory[Period]),
Inventory[Period] <= SelectedPeriod)
)

Hi @VMP ,

Create a calculated column in each of the two tables, convert the text format Period to an integer format Period for easy comparison.

``````Period Num =
VALUE(LEFT('Inventory'[Period], 4)) * 100 + VALUE(RIGHT('Inventory'[Period], 2))

Period No =
VALUE(LEFT('Period A'[Period], 4)) * 100 + VALUE(RIGHT('Period A'[Period], 2))``````

The two tables need to be disconnected.

Create a measure to calculate YTD:

``````Cost YTD =
VAR SelectedNo = SELECTEDVALUE('Period A'[Period No])
RETURN
CALCULATE(
SUM(Inventory[Total Cost]),
FILTER(
ALL('Inventory'[Period Num]),
'Inventory'[Period Num] <= SelectedNo
)
)``````

I'd create a new column with a formatted period number, as in "202401". You can do that in Power Query by duplicating the column and then replacing the string "-P" to "". Then update your filters to use the new period number column.
