same months comparison over the years - DAX

Hi all!

 

i use this DAX 

CY = CALCULATE(SUM('Market'[Sales]), DATESMTD('Calendar'[Date]))/1000;
 
and for the last year 
LY = CALCULATE(SUM('Market'[Sales]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Calendar'[Date],-1,YEAR)))/1000
 
the issue is when i select filter for example jan&feb 2024, it shows only value for February 2024 & 2023 accordingly. But i need a sum for of all selected months  
 
Any suggestions?

Hi @RT6 

 

Thanks for the reply from @Dangar332 , please allow me to provide another insight:

 

My sample:

vxuxinyimsft_0-1712730542611.png

 

vxuxinyimsft_1-1712730596323.png

 

Create a measure as follows

comparison = 
VAR _previous = CALCULATE(SUM(Market[Sales]), FILTER(Market, [Date] IN SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('Calendar'[Date])))
VAR _current = CALCULATE(SUM(Market[Sales]), FILTER(ALL(Market), [Date] IN VALUES('Calendar'[Date])))
RETURN
DIVIDE(_previous + _current, 1000)

 

Result:

hi Yulia, 

 

thanks for your response! SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR worked well in this case 🙂

Hi, @RT6 

 you have slicer in month form and you want sum of month wise then use DATESYTD()
