# Calculation of CAGR based on a baseline percentage

Hi AnaPlanners,

I am trying to run a stimulation based on a business scenerio wherein i take in the baseline % and apply a CAGR (in %,can be negative or positive) to the baseline % to get my year on year growth.(image 1 shows the input module for stimulation)

Image 2 is where i am doing the calculation.

i am using a time range for 10 years,

i am expecting the resultant % as ; baseline *CAGR% for FY19,

'FY19'*CAGR for FY20 and so on...

Can someone suggest me a way to do this.

Check your current period setting in Time settings.

Thanks

First of all your current period should be updated - it is blank.

Second if your year of current period falls under FY18 and you don't want to calculate it for FY18 then adjust the formula and add +1 in the formula - depends whatever your requirement is. Basically solution is right in front of you - just customize it as per your needs.

Happy Planning!

Thanks,

This should work for you

Formula

IF YEAR(START()) = YEAR(CURRENTPERIODSTART()) THEN Baseline % * (1 + CAGR %) ELSE PREVIOUS(Simulation Result %) * (1 + CAGR %)

• Hi Arun,

Thank you for the response.Unfortunately it did not work.

See results in the image.

Arun's solution should work.As far as I can see there is no problem with the dimensionality on you **** module

It looks like that your current period on Time Setting Page  belongs to FY17 or any other year which is earlier than than FY18 or is not populated at all. Hence not pulling the values

After Setting up the current period

Hope that helps

• Hi Misab,

Attached are my time settings.Please comment.

• Your current period in the screenshot is blank. Set it to appropriate value.

Thanks

Arun
