Hi, I am not sure if I understood your question correctly, but I tried to create a sample pbix file like below.

Please check the below picture and the attached pbix file.

I hope the below can provide some ideas on how to create a solution for your semantic model.

``````compare to the previous within the slicer selection: =
VAR _currentselectsales =
SUM ( Sales[Sales] )
VAR _currentselectyear =
MAX ( 'Year'[Year] )
VAR _prevselectyear =
MAXX (
FILTER ( ALLSELECTED ( 'Year' ), 'Year'[Year] < _currentselectyear ),
'Year'[Year]
)
VAR _prevselectsales =
CALCULATE ( SUM ( Sales[Sales] ), 'Year'[Year] = _prevselectyear )
RETURN
IF ( NOT ISBLANK ( _prevselectsales ), _currentselectsales - _prevselectsales )``````
