## Linear trend chart using baseline data

Hi,

I have tasks defined by projects at start of the year and month on month actuals will be added. Need to plot a chart to actuals in one line and another one linear trend till start of the next year (i.e Jan'25). Attached data and out snapshot for reference

The liner line needs to be configured. it could be of 6% or 8%. The measure should work on Project filter as well when applied.

 MonthYear Project Tasks 24-Jan 250 24-Feb 251 24-Mar 220 24-Apr 220 24-May 24-Jun 24-Jul 24-Aug 24-Sep 24-Oct 24-Nov 24-Dec 25-Jan

Hi  @manojk_pbi ,

I created some data:

Here are the steps you can follow：

1. Create calculated table.

``````Table 2 =
var _date=
SUMMARIZE('Table','Table'[Month],"mindate",MINX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),'Table'[Month]=EARLIER('Table'[Month])),[Date]))
return
_date,"rank",RANKX(_date,[mindate],,ASC))``````

2. Select [Month] – Column tools – Sort by column – [rank].

3. Create measure.

``````value =
var _index=MINX(ALL('Table 2'),'Table 2'[rank])
var _month=MINX(FILTER(ALL('Table 2'),'Table 2'[rank]=_index),[Month])
var _value=
RETURN
IF(
MAX('Table 2'[rank])= _index,_value,
_value-
_value * (MAX('Table 2'[rank])-1) * 0.008)``````

4. Result:
