Hi Team,


I'm new to power bi,  kindly help me out for below requirement.

I have month-year slicer.

If we selected any one of the month, i needed sum of previous month data and current month data in two bars.


we need to group before month in one bar and selected month in one bar.




the final output i need is if we select any month, the bar should be group into two bars one is selected month bar and previous month bar.  Please help me if it not works and do let me know the alternative.

@siva54 , if you have date , then you can use time intelligence two get current and prior


MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD('Date'[Date]))
last MTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,MONTH)))


Power BI — Month on Month with or Without Time Intelligence



But if you want more than one month as a legend, then you need an independent table

Need of an Independent Date Table:

Hi amitchandak,


I need based on selected value of Month text.


For example, if we select may 21 then till may 21 in one bar and May 21 in another bar.
