Trouble with showing correct year value with slicers

Hello everyone! 

I'm so close with this code, but I keep running into the same issue and could use another set of eyes to point out what I'm missing. 

What I'm trying to do is to simply display the values of year slicers on a card depending on 3 cases: no selection, current year, or current year -1. Here is my current code: 

 

 

var yearDefault = YEAR(NOW()) & " & " & YEAR(NOW())-1
var yearSelected = NOT( ISFILTERED( 'Data'[Year]))

VAR YearReturn =  IF( yearSelected
    , SELECTEDVALUE('Data'[Year]) 
    , yearDefault
    )


RETURN 
YearReturn

 

 

What is currently happening is when nothing is selected, I get a "(Blank)" showing in the card visual when it should be what I'm referencing in yearDefault, which is "2021 & 2020". Any ideas on what is causing this to show (Blank) instead of the years?

I've tried many various attempts but it has never worked so far. I'd appreciate any help into this! So close!

I was thinking of how to fix this and discovered an easier way if I just removed the IF statement. 

var yearDefault = YEAR(NOW()) & " & " & YEAR(NOW())-1

VAR test = SELECTEDVALUE('data'[Year], yearDefault)

As I normally do, I was overcomplicating it.

Hi @Synik 

 

Try this measure:

 

 

Selected Year = 
Var _yearDefault = YEAR(today()) & " & " & YEAR(today())-1
VAR _YearReturn =  IF( HASONEVALUE('Data'[Year])
    , SELECTEDVALUE('Data'[Year]) 
    , _yearDefault
    )


RETURN 
_YearReturn
