TotalMTD doesnt work!!!

Postby carlos barberis » Tue Oct 23, 2018 11:52 am

Hi friends,
¿is it posible that a PBI function doesnt work?
Attached you will find the exercise of Supercharge Power BI, page 119: Nº 61- [Total Sales Month to Date]
As you can see, figures of Total Sales MTD are equal to Total Sales!!! What I'm doing bad?
The formula used seems OK : Total Sales Month to date = TOTALMTD([Total Sales],'Calendar'[Date])
Thanks in advance

There is no possibility that a DAX (PBI) function doesn't work.

Your formula is correct.
I think it is a problem with your filters. As I could not understand the language I could not make out what columns you used in filters.

Here is the solution that I got.

Hope it works for you. Otherwise please attach the Power BI workbook. That makes it easy to resolve the issue.
