Helper II

## YTD TOTAL Function is Returning the YTD AVERAGE instead

In my visual shown below:
- The Turnover Rate (T/O) in January 2023 is 1.72%  <-- Calculated using a measure and this value is correct
- The Turnover Rate (T/O) in February 2023 is 2.56% <-- Calculated using a measure and this value is correct

Then, I added the YTD Turnover Rate ( measure name is YTD T/O Rate Measure ) using the following formula.

YTD T/O Rate Measure =
TOTALYTD([T/O Rate Measure2],'Termination Summary by Department'[End of Month Date].[Date])

Problem: I expect the February 2023 YTD rate to be 1.72% + 2.56% = 4.28%
What it gives me is the YTD Average not the YTD Total, ie. average(1.72%,2.56%) = 2.15%

Any ideas on what I've done wrong?

Hi @ninsights,

According to your description, It seems like a common measure formula calculate with multiple aggregations issues. For this scenario, you can't directly nest these with other calculations. You need to manually set different steps in measure to handle and apply these aggregations.
