Hey @HishamAT ,

 

I recommend reading this article: https://www.daxpatterns.com/time-patterns/
This article contains almost everything what you need to know about time/date calculations using DAX.

Hopefully, this gets you started.

Tom

You can use the Dax function: Sameperiodlastyear to achieve this. Though the image is not showing the difference between a monthly value (on two given years), that can be done with a simple formula. (Diff = This year value - last year value). Hope this helps.Dax function: SameperiodlastyearDax function: Sameperiodlastyear
