Hi @ambepat,

First some impotant things to be aware of when using this forum.

This forum is full of volunteers that give up their own free time to help others, this includes the Expert team. If you single out a specific user it can keep others from providing support - as a result it will take longer to get a response… And finally as this is not an on demand forum condider hiring a payed professional for time sensitive issues.

With that said, I hope you are well and its great to hear you’ve been enjoying the new content

Please review this session:

Copy the code below into a new blank query.

I’ve made some assumptions that you’ll have to review and possibly amend. It seems to be an annual calculation, so I’ve grouped on “*Employee*” and “*Fiscal Year*”. There was no calculation behind the initial value, referred to as “*PY Cont.*” so I’ve set this value to 0.

```

.

Finally I couldn’t match the “what I’m trying to achieve” sheet results because those value combinations don’t seem to be present. However with the pattern above and after reviewing the training content - I’m confident you can make this work.

I hope this is helpful.
