Display Last month and December Last Year

Hi everyone, 

I am trying to build a balance sheet in a matrix visual showing the last month (i.e. October 2022 results) compared with December values of last year (i.e. December 2021) with the header reflecting Month & Year.

I have a date table with a date column marked as date.

 

I managed to calculate latest month and December last year's value through the following formulas. 

December =

VAR _mon = MONTH(LASTDATE('BS'[Date]))

RETURN

CALCULATE([Total Amount BS],DATESMTD(DATEADD('Date'[Date],-1*_mon,MONTH)))

 

Total Amount Last Date = CALCULATE([Total Amount BS],LASTDATE('BS'[Date]))

The desired outcome is to get the result to work in one measure. Appreciate the help!

@Peter_Yaacoub , Try measure like

 

Last Month Today =
var _min = eomonth(today(),-2)+1
var _max = eomonth(today(),-1)
return CALCULATE([Net], FILTER('Date','Date'[Date] >=_min && 'Date'[Date] <= _max))

 

 

Last Month Last year Today =
var _min = eomonth(today(),-1*month(Today())-1)+1
var _max = eomonth(today(),-1*month(Today()))
return CALCULATE([Net], FILTER('Date','Date'[Date] >=_min && 'Date'[Date] <= _max))
