calculate active customers previous month and current month

I have 3 columns 

 

and I want to get active customers for current month where status = "won"

and active customers for previous month where status = "won"

 

for current month im using 

ActiveMembers = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT(Table[Customer]),PARALLELPERIOD(table[Date],0,MONTH),FILTER(
        'Table','table'[Status] ="won" ))
 
and it's working fine.
 
but i have getting no value for previous month and I'm using:
ActiveMemberPreviousMonth = CALCULATE(DISTINCTCOUNT('table'[Customer]),PREVIOUSMONTH('table'[Date]), FILTER('table','table'[Status]="Won"))
 
Problem statement: I want help to get current active member and previous month active member where status = "Won"
 

 

expected solution:

 

eg: if today is 12 March 2021:

I want active users of the current month March 2021: 5364 users

 

and previous month i.e Feb 2021 :

active users 3265 users.

 
 
my example data for the table is shown below

 

customer date status
xyz03-01-2018 won
abc03-01-2018 lost
efd03-01-2018 won
ghy03-01-2018 lost
tgh05-02-2018 won
fht01-01-2019 won

Hi @Anonymous ,

You can try these measures:

CurrentMonthCount = 
CALCULATE (
    DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[Customer] ),
    FILTER (
        'Table',
        YEAR ( 'Table'[Date] ) = YEAR ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] ) )
            && MONTH ( 'Table'[Date] ) = MONTH ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] ) )
            && 'Table'[Status] = "won"
    )
)
LastMonthCount = 
VAR lastmonth =
    EOMONTH ( SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Date'[Date] ), -2 ) + 1
RETURN
    CALCULATE (
        DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[Customer] ),
        FILTER (
            'Table',
            YEAR ( 'Table'[Date] ) = YEAR ( lastmonth )
                && MONTH ( 'Table'[Date] ) = MONTH ( lastmonth )
                && 'Table'[Status] = "won"
        )
    )

the data is huge I just made a small snippet of it for understanding.

I have data from Jan 2018 to August 2021.

I get accurate active customers for the current month but I don't know how to get active users for the previous month.

my measure for the previous month just doesn't work.

@Anonymous  what do you mean by active customers?

 

Do you need cumulative distinct count  of wins per yr-month

 

Measure2 =
CALCULATE (
    DISTINCTCOUNT ( 'Table'[customer] ),
    FILTER ( ALL ( 'Table'[ date] ), 'Table'[ date] <= MAX ( 'Table'[ date] ) ),
    'Table'[ status] IN { "won" }
)

@Anonymous  Hi, could you share mroe data? the data you've shared above does not have Feb & Apr data hence it is natural to show no value. When your date filter context is Jan, there is no data for last year Dec, and when date filter is March, there is no data for Feb, and so on.
