## Creating a measure Last Year

Hi

I am wanting to create a measure for Last Year, but instead the number I get is all years (2020,2021 and 2022)

Here is my measure

Total Quoted LY = CALCULATE(SUM('ELT Quotes'[Total Quoted value ()]),DATEADD('Calender Table'[Date],-1,YEAR))
Here is my Date Hierarchy.  What I ultimately am trying to do is show the increase or decrease between last years quoted figures and this years.  e.g. Say, as example This Year 30m, last year 25m, increase of 20%.  I want to show 20% in my visual of 2022 (30m)

Thanks Jennet

Hi @JennetK ,

You can create a measure as below to get it:

``````Percentage =
DIVIDE (
SUM ( 'ELT Quotes'[Total Quoted value ()] ) - [Total Quoted LY],
[Total Quoted LY]
)``````

Hi, Thanks.  It didn't work for me.  It doesn't matter for now.  I think the years are best in separate tables.  What you do think?
