Fill in the rest...



I have a pretty straight-forward data set for water meter installations. There was a pre-covid set of monthly goals for installs (dark blue line) and a newer set of monthly goals for installs (orange line) against the actual monthly installs. What I would like to do is fill out the rest of the months with how many installs need to be completed to achieve total installs.


I would need to subtract the total of actual installs from the total of installs needed (119177) and then divide it equally (whole numbers only) into the remaining months. Just not sure where to start on getting Power BI to do this for me. If someone could point me in the right direction that would be much appreciated.
