# Count two dates

8 - Cloud Apps

I have 3 columns DueDate, FinishedDate, ID

What i want a metric of, is for a given time period, what is the ratio of finished date / due date

basically, in september, you had 40 records with a duedate in september, but only finished 20...

the x axis does not HAVE to be duedate or finisheddate, but if it's possible, the x axis should be duedate

i've tried the formula (count([Id]),[Months in FinishedDate])/(count([Id]),[Months in DueDate]) but it always just equals 100%... thoughts?

Hi @liamcameron ,

If you're looking to calculate the ratio of finished dates to due dates for a given time period, here is an approach you can try:

Scenario 1: If you want to find the ratio of IDs that are finished in the same month as their due date (e.g., in September, you had 40 records with a due date in September, but only finished 20 in September):

``(count([Id]), [Months in FinishedDate], [Months in DueDate]) / (count([Id]), [Months in DueDate])``

In this formula:

• `[Months in FinishedDate] = September`
• `[Months in DueDate] = September`

Scenario 2: If you want to find the ratio of IDs that are finished any time after their due date (e.g., in September, you had 40 records with a due date in September, but only finished 20 anytime after the due date):

``(count([Id]), [Months in FinishedDate], [Months in DueDate]) / (count([Id]), [Months in DueDate])``

In this formula:

• `[Months in FinishedDate] != N/A`
• `[Months in DueDate] = September`

Make sure that your conditions for `[Months in FinishedDate]` and `[Months in DueDate]` are correctly set according to your requirement. This will help you calculate the accurate ratio of finished tasks to due tasks.

If you are trying to create a column chart, use 'months in due_date' as Category and use formula without due_date field.
