Time Line Recurrence Formula

Solved3.94K viewsFormulas and Functions

Hi all,
I’m using the new time line category but I’ve a problem with the recurrence formula.
FORMULA: Cumulated Costs=”Total Cost:Month[THIS]+Cumulated Costs:Month[PREV]”

In this way QM calculates the progression also in January of the next year but, as it’s not a cash flow but a sum of annual costs, it would stop in december.


Thank you so much.


Hi – this is a good question.

I think you would want to do something like this:

Cumulated Costs = Total Cost:Month[THIS] + Cumulated Costs:Month[PREV] skip January

This will give you a message that the formula cannot use the new timeline ranges… and that is OK in this case.

Then you could write a formula for January like:

Cumulated Costs:January = Total Cost:January

I attached a demonstration model as well.
