Example

The following sample formula creates a measure that calculates the 'Quarter Start Inventory Value' of the product inventory.

To see how this works, create a PivotTable and add the fields, CalendarYear, CalendarQuarter and MonthNumberOfYear, to the Row Labels area of the PivotTable. Then add a measure, named Quarter Start Inventory Value, using the formula defined in the code section, to the Values area of the PivotTable.

Code

=OPENINGBALANCEQUARTER(SUMX(ProductInventory,ProductInventory[UnitCost]*ProductInventory[UnitsBalance]),DateTime[DateKey])
