DAX Help | Parallel Period (Pbix attached)

Hi!

I am trying do a viz counting of # of hired made in a certain month, and then comparing it to the previous month..

I did a DAX calculation w. Parallel Period but I am getting the entire column total, versus the line by line..

Is this an issue with the relationship? Do I need to do a X function?

 

Pbix model is here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mv9DTQ7o0B61Gk-6Geo1ODh6vnWanKX9/view?usp=drive_link

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

According to your description, here are my steps you can follow as a solution.

(1)My test data is the same as yours.

(2) We can create a measure. 

# of Hires Previous Month = 
var _pre=MONTH(EOMONTH(MAX('DateTable'[Date]),-1))
return CALCULATE([# of Hires],FILTER(ALL('DateTable'),MONTH('DateTable'[Date])=_pre))

(3) Then the result is as follows.
