Same Period one year ago

I am trying to display data from the same date range a year ago. I have tried sameperiodlast year and parallelperiod but I am getting tripped up when the date range spans accross two years for example the user selects March 1, 2022 - March 1, 2023. I want to simultaneously display data from that date range and March 1, 2021 - March 1, 2022. However, crossing years seems to be confusing my measures. Any suggestions here?

Hello @Jessica_Ballard,

 

Can you please try this:

 

1. Create a Measure for the Current Period

Sales_Current_Period = 
SUM('YourDataTable'[Sales])

2. Create a Measure for the Same Period Last Year

Sales_Same_Period_Last_Year = 
CALCULATE(
    SUM('YourDataTable'[Sales]),
    DATEADD('Date'[Date], -1, YEAR),
    FILTER(
        'Date',
        'Date'[Date] >= DATEADD(MIN('Date'[Date]), -1, YEAR) &&
        'Date'[Date] <= DATEADD(MAX('Date'[Date]), -1, YEAR)
    )
)

Should you require any further assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
