Dateadd Function returns error when i Drilldown

I'm using the "DATEADD" function in my report, and it works perfectly, until i start to DrillDown in my sharts. 
i get this Error :" Error in the calculated mesure 'Data'[Mois - mois-1] : the DATEADD function expects a continous selection when the date column is not unique, or not continous or contains hours".
But my date column has continous dates : 


I even created another date table, but it  doesn't work. 
Here is the shart that shows me errors when i DrillDown with " Type d'article" 
I get that Error only when i get to the last level in the hierachy. 
And here is my two formulas, that contains "DATEADD".
here is the link to my Power BI file :

Hello @Ghaston,


Column used in the DATEADD function in measure Mois - (mois-1) refers to 'Echelle de temps' which doesn't have continuous dates. 


For that you must create a dimension date table with continuous dates and set the relationship with column Echelle de temps.


Hope this helps.

There is a picture in my message showing the " Echelle de temps" data. Why that isn't continous ? it doesn"t skip any month since decembre 2017. 
I created a date table, that starts from MIN of "Echelle de temps" and ends at MAX "Echelle de temps", and that gave me the same " Echelle de temps " column. 

Hello @Ghaston,


It should contain series of dates from 1st to 30/31st. Column of such dates are known as "contiguous dates".
