HI @Anonymous,

You can use year and quarter functions to extract the year and quarter numbers from the date field value, then you can use them in expression to get corresponding current and previous quarter values to calculate the diff.

``````formual =
VAR currDate =
MAX ( Table[Date] )
VAR prevDate =
DATE ( YEAR ( currDate ), MONTH ( currDate ) - 3, DAY ( currDate ) )
VAR currQuarter =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table[Amount] ),
FILTER (
ALLSELECTED ( Table ),
YEAR ( Table[Date] ) = YEAR ( currDate )
&& QUARTER ( Table[Date] ) = QUARTER ( currDate )
),
VALUES ( Table[Category] )
)
VAR prevQuarter =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( Table[Amount] ),
FILTER (
ALLSELECTED ( Table ),
YEAR ( Table[Date] ) = YEAR ( prevDate )
&& QUARTER ( Table[Date] ) = QUARTER ( prevDate )
),
VALUES ( Table[Category] )
)
RETURN
DIVIDE ( currQuarter - prevQuarter, prevQuarter )``````
