DATEADD based on max date

Hi folks,

 

I need to calculate the past 12 months based on the max date. Please, any idea?

 

I try dateadd and it is not working.

MAX_sent_payment = max('All Expenses'[Sent for Payment Date])
 
So in my example, if the max date= March-2024, I would like March-2023
Thank you,
 
Clara

Hi @claraigg ,

 

Dateadd is a table function and cannot be directly useful for metric values. You can see the results returned by the dateadd function by creating a calculated table.

You can try below formula:

M_ = 
CALCULATE (
    SUM ( 'Table 2'[value] ),
    DATESBETWEEN (
        'Table 2'[Date],
        MAX ( 'Table 2'[Date] ) - 365,
        MAX ( 'Table 2'[Date] )
    )
)

@claraigg 12_months = EOMONTH( [Max_sent_payment], -13) + 1

@claraigg try the below
Past_12_Months_Start_Date = DATEADD(MAX('All Expenses'[Sent for Payment Date]), -12, MONTH)

Yeah, that was my first approach. However, it did not work.
