## PYTD Function Issue

I need the PYTD function to give me just the total of sales for the same period last year as the current year period.

This is the formula I am using for YTD:

YTD = TOTALYTD(SUM('Combined Table'[Quota Credit]), 'Combined Table'[QR Date].[Date])

This is the formula for PYTD:
QC PYTD = CALCULATE(TOTALYTD(SUM('Combined Table'[Quota Credit]), 'Combined Table'[QR Date].[Date]), SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('Combined Table'[QR Date].[Date]))

For some reason, for PYTD it is giving me the total sales for the year and not just the sales for last year that match up to the current time period in this year. Any suggestions would be great!

Hi,@CiaraCaryl

1.First I have created the following table and the column names and data are the data you have given:

2. Below are the measure I've created for your needs:

``````MEASURE =
VAR cdate =
CALCULATE (
MAX ( 'Combined Table'[QR Date] ),
FILTER (
ALLSELECTED ( 'Combined Table' ),
'Combined Table'[QR Date].[Year] = MAX ( 'Combined Table'[QR Date].[Year] )
)
)
RETURN
CALCULATE (
SUM ( 'Combined Table'[Quota Credit] ),
FILTER (
'Combined Table',
'Combined Table'[QR Date].[Year]
= YEAR ( cdate ) - 1
&& 'Combined Table'[QR Date] <= EDATE ( cdate, -12 )
)
)
``````

3.Here's my final result, which I hope meets your requirements.

hi @CiaraCaryl ,

TOTALYTD and SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR are time intelligence functions, to use them, you need a dedicated calendar table. Without the calendar table, try a measure like:

``````PYTD =
VAR _todaylastyear = EDATE(MAX('Combined Table'[QR Date]), -12)
VAR _result =
CALCULATE(
SUM('Combined Table'[Quota Credit]),
FILTER(
ALL('Combined Table'[QR Date]),
'Combined Table'[QR Date])<_todaylastyear
&&YEAR('Combined Table'[QR Date])) = YEAR(_todaylastyear)
)
)
RETURN _result``````
