We can calculate in many ways but recommended & easy with the summary method

below is another way of doing but required some mapping as shownQty 2.png

hi @Saisri8568 - try using YEARVALUE(a).

Thank you. But, if summary is turned off, what will be the solution?

The recommended ways of doing it would be to use the summation or have an intermediate year only item.

 

If you're really short of space you can use TIMESUM(a, <FY-Q1>, <FY-Q4>) / 4 where Q1 & Q4 are retreived dynamically from your time system module - just a word of caution here that this isn't considered best practice as it is an inefficient way of doing the calculation.

Why not use MovingSum() with the average parameter?

But, If we turnoff summary for above line item, that is not possible right?
