## Compare Equivalent Period and sames Store Last Year

Hello everyone,
I have the following problem, I want to compare the same time period for last year, if I have from 03/01/2018 to 03/21/2018, I need to compare in that period but for the 2017 but additionally that I compare the same stores, this I have achieved separately , the measure sale LY is the one that has the full period of the month with the same stores this is seen when filtering door type and the part of dates I have it in the measure sale LYD that calculates the same period of time, my problem is that I need that calculate the same period of time  and same stores in one and at the end of the month is the same as sale LY.

Hi @vazmor
