PREVIOUSMONTH doesn´t work...

Hi everyone.

 

I have a tiny but mess problem with

 

I have a tiny but mess problem with this simple measure: I got two tables, one with monthly costs of a budget

and a table data.

I only want to make an easy measure in order to obtain the costs of the previous month:

PREVIOUS MONTH 2021 = CALCULATE((CALCULATE(SUM('Matriz'[Total]), Matriz[Year]="2021", Matriz[Origen]="Cuenta de resultados")), PREVIOUSMONTH(Calendario[Date]))

 

 

It actually is not working so far.

 

Can you help me with it?

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

 

Best

@ÒScar , You should not add filters for year and month. In case you need a filter use a slicer from date table 

 

Assuming year filter related to date of date table

 

PREVIOUS MONTH 2021 = CALCULATE(SUM('Matriz'[Total]), filter(Matriz, Matriz[Origen]="Cuenta de resultados"), PREVIOUSMONTH(Calendario[Date]))

Hi @amitchandak ,

 

first of all, thank you so much for your quick response.

 

I share with you a screenshot of my dashboard once I have followed your advice, I´m afraid it still doesn´t work...

Could you take a look on it, please?

 

Thank you once again, @amitchandak ,
