## Accumulated values, KPI

Hello again,

I would like to compare the accumulated prices of 2018 (Jan - April) with the accumulated price from Jan - April of 2017.

so the calculation would be (20+30+50+50) / (50+60+40+70).

If there exists a price in May 2018, the formula should compare Jan-May 18 with Jan-May 17 and so on...

My formula unfortunately does not work

(rangesum(above(sum([Price2018]),0,RowNo())))

/

Sum(Aggr(If(Sum([Price 18]) > 0, Sum([Price 17])),AccountingMonth))

Tank you a lot in advance for any help!

Best

Markus

The chart you are trying to compare them on, have AccountingMonth as the dimension (just like your image above)?

Hi Sunny,

no chart, I would like to calculate an KPI. But my data is structured like in the example above.

so  (20+30+50+50) / (50+60+40+70 = 68,18%

Many thanks!

Okay... to make this work... you would need a month field which is only month information and no year information in it. Do you have such a field in your dashboard?

Also, do you have two different Prices for 17 and 18 in your database? or do you have a single Price field?

It is like this: so a month field exists, and there are two price fields
