Average 3 months data
For your assistance please. I want to get the average of the past 3 months, however, the average result should be post to the remaining months. In the screenshot below, I created three lines items:
Commission % - input data
Latest 3 Months Average (Comm%) - I used this formula MOVINGSUM(Commission %, -2, 0, AVERAGE)
Previous 3 Months Average (Comm%) - please see formula in the screenshot.
How can I post the 5% (average of Jan, Feb, Mar) for the month of April to Dec onwards?
Thank you 🙂
If you are not use Current Period then you can LOOKUP the average and post this forward.
For this you will need to create a module containing no dimensions or time. Add a time period formatted line item and use this to inform the LOOKUP.0
I assume that there is a cut off point from which you want all future periods to be populated with the three month average. I will for this post assume that you are using current period.
If so you can use
=IF ISCURRENTPERIOD(END()) THEN MOVINGSUM(Commission %, -2, 0, AVERAGE) ELSE PREVIOUS(Previous 3 Months Average (Comm%))
However, I would recommend that you use a time system module to query the Current Period as this will be useful in other formulas.0
Thank you! 🙂0
