Re: YTD Calculation

depending on the case 🙂

for me there is only one YTD e.g. for your case count (Sales) from the current year i.e. 2020 until the last Sales in the current year (today)

I have met other people with a different meaning of YTD !!

so to secure your loading I suggest you to add in the loading script

Date(Date#(MonthYear,'MMM-YY'),'MMM-YY') as Month,


MonthYear is a field with Aug-19, Sep-19......Jan-20.

So the YTD :

=count({<Month= {">=$(=Date(Makedate(Year(today()),1,1),'MMM-YY'))<=$(=Date(today(),'MMM-YY'))"}> } Sales)
