Mixing Timeframes on the same Pivot

Hello,

I’m quite new on QV and I’m currently struggling trying to mix different time frames on the same pivot table. Is that possible?

Basically I need to show the Actuals by month and compare with the annual Budget (figure attached).

Thanks!!

It is possible to use calculated expression for Month.  Assuming it is dual (Jan is 1, Feb is 2,...), it could have this look:

=if(Month>month(today()), 'Forecast ' & Month, Month)

And expressions also should be conditional based on month, calculating Actual ot Budget

Thank you Michael for the support!

I made the adjustment but the problem now is regarding the total row...it's summing up either actuals or forecast, depending which one I state last in the string:

if(Month>7,sum(Forecast),sum(Actual))  the total row give me the sum of Actual

if(Month<=7,sum(Actual),sum(Forecast))  the total row give me the sum of Forecast

The target is to have a total row of 7 months Actual + 5 months Forecast

Any idea?

Thanks!

It should be a little different.  In this case:

sum(if(Month>7,Forecast,Actual))
