Getting the Last Month values returns wrong values

Hello.

 

I was trying to get a list of the last month values for the Revenue Total column but for some reason the function stops working on the third entry. What could be causing this?

hello @Anonymous 
im sure there is a better efficent way to do this but what i did is 

1) create a month-year column : 

Month-Year = FORMAT('Table'[Date],"MM-YYYY")

2) create a sort column : 
sort = FORMAT('Table'[Date],"YYYYMM")
 
3) create a rank for the dates : 
RANK = RANKX('Table','Table'[sort],,ASC,dENSE)
 
4) create a measure: 
Last Month sales = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Sales]),FILTER(all('Table'),'Table'[RANK]= (MAX('Table'[RANK])-1)))

i made a very small sample unrelated to your data:
