# Remaining Work Hours Calculation Using DAX

This guide outlines a DAX formula to compute remaining work hours for employees by analyzing current week data against their available hours. It includes assumptions, calculation steps, and explanations for implementation in Power BI or

## Prompt

## Answer

### Pseudo Code Objective:

The goal is to calculate the remaining work hours for each employee based on the current week number of the year using DAX.

### Pseudo Code Logic:

Input Data Assumptions:

- You have a table
`Employees`

with columns:`EmployeeID`

,`AvailableHours`

. - You have a table
`Dates`

with columns:`Date`

,`WeekNumber`

. - Assume there are 52 weeks in a year.

- You have a table
Calculation Steps:

**Determine Current Week Number**: Identify the current week number based on the current date.**Calculate Projected Work Hours Left**:- Calculate total hours already used up to the current week.
- Subtract used hours from the available hours to get the remaining hours.

Create a DAX formula following these steps.

### Pseudo Code in DAX:

```
// Define the current week number
CurrentWeekNumber = LOOKUPVALUE(Dates[WeekNumber], Dates[Date], TODAY())
// Define total number of weeks in a year
TotalWeeksInYear = 52
// Calculate working hours used up to the current week
HoursUsedUsingCurrentWeek =
DIVIDE(
(TotalWeeksInYear - CurrentWeekNumber + 1) * Employees[AvailableHours],
TotalWeeksInYear
)
// Calculate remaining work hours for each employee
RemainingWorkHours =
Employees[AvailableHours] - HoursUsedUsingCurrentWeek
```

### DAX Formula Implementation:

This pseudo code specifies the logical sequence for calculating remaining work hours. An equivalent DAX formula can be crafted in Power BI or Excel:

```
// Calculate the current week number
VAR CurrentWeekNumber =
CALCULATE(
MAX(Dates[WeekNumber]),
Dates[Date] = TODAY()
)
// Define the total weeks in a year
VAR TotalWeeksInYear = 52
// Calculate hours used up to the current week
VAR HoursUsedUpToCurrentWeek =
DIVIDE(
(TotalWeeksInYear - CurrentWeekNumber + 1) * MAX(Employees[AvailableHours]),
TotalWeeksInYear
)
// Calculate remaining work hours
RETURN
MAX(Employees[AvailableHours]) - HoursUsedUpToCurrentWeek
```

### Explanation:

**Lookup Current Week**:`CurrentWeekNumber`

uses`LOOKUPVALUE`

or`CALCULATE`

to find today's corresponding week number.**Total Weeks Assumption**: The year is considered to have 52 weeks.**Hours Used Calculation**: The formula calculates the hours that should have been used up to the current week.**Remaining Hours**: Remaining hours are then derived by subtracting the used hours from the total available hours.

### Summary:

This approach effectively leverages DAX to compute the remaining working hours for employees based on the progression of weeks in a year. The key steps include determining the current week, calculating used hours, and subtracting from available hours. This can be adapted within Power BI to create a clear, dynamic visualization of employee work projections.
