Issue with Variation using Time Intelligence when figure 1st period is 0

Hello, 

 

I have one issue with this formula regarding Variation in values between dates , when the 1st period of variation is 0.

 

Table 1 :

Sky571_0-1597928091516.png

 

 

Result with the issue :

Sky571_1-1597928091521.png

 

so , in the 2nd row, the variation between 2016 and 2015 should have been +100 instead of blank.

 

Do you know how to do so with my formulas please :

 

Here is my formulas :

Calculated column :

D-C = Table1[Debit]-Table1[Credit]

 

Measures :

Var value =

IF(

    ISFILTERED('Table1'[EndofFiscalYear]),

ERROR("ERROR("Time intelligence quick measures can only be grouped or filtered by the Power BI-provided date hierarchy."),

    VAR __PREV_YEAR =

        CALCULATE(

            SUM('Table1'[D-C]),

            DATEADD('Table1'[EndofFiscalYear].[Date], -1, YEAR)

        )

    RETURN

        DIVIDE(SUM('Table1'[D-C]) - __PREV_YEAR, __PREV_YEAR)*__PREV_YEAR

)

 

Var % =

IF(

    ISFILTERED('Table1'[EndofFiscalYear]),

ERROR("ERROR("Time intelligence quick measures can only be grouped or filtered by the Power BI-provided date hierarchy."),

    VAR __PREV_YEAR =

        CALCULATE(

            SUM('Table1'[D-C]),

            DATEADD('Table1'[EndofFiscalYear].[Date], -1, YEAR)

        )

    RETURN

        DIVIDE(SUM('Table1'[D-C]) - __PREV_YEAR, __PREV_YEAR)

)

 

Thank you in advance

@Sky571 - When you start to stray outside the lines of the prescribed paths set forth by the time intelligence functions you start to get wacky results. You may find this helpful - https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/To-bleep-With-Time-Intelligence/ba-p/1260000

@Sky571 , not sure of you checking on end of year. With date table and time intelligence

YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD('Date'[Date],"12/31"))
Last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year),"12/31"))
This year Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(ENDOFYEAR('Date'[Date]),"12/31"))
Last year Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(ENDOFYEAR(dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year)),"12/31"))
Last to last YTD Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESYTD(dateadd('Date'[Date],-2,Year),"12/31"))
Year behind Sales = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[Sales Amount]),dateadd('Date'[Date],-1,Year))

 

with date and year table

//Only year vs Year, not a level below

This Year = CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]),filter(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Year]=max('Date'[Year])))
Last Year = CALCULATE(sum('order'[Qty]),filter(ALL('Date'),'Date'[Year]=max('Date'[Year])-1))

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :
