Comparing Current year sales with respective last year sales but slicer not allowing to show PYsales

I wanted to show historic data on my report using slicer, but once user filter out data using slicer CY sales is visible not PY sales.

How to avoid slicer to filter PY sales on table.

Hi @sbm_shubham ,

Let say the below is your CY sales measure


CYSales = CALCULATE([Sales], Calendar[Year] = YEAR(TODAY()))

then your PYSales will be

PYSales = CALCULATE([Sales], Calendar[Year] = YEAR(TODAY()) - 1) 

This should give you the CYSales and PYSales even if some filter is going to be applied.


You can also use the Previous Year function for this. 

The Below screenshot show two tables (with and without filter on year applied)




You can also share the DAX that you are using for getting better help from the community

Thanks for quick reply.
I don't want to show only difference on the visual but the page having Fiscal Year slicer and that is not allowing visual to show sale of previous year.
