Dynamic Date Title

Hi,

I want to insert years as a title into a card. Like shown in the picture. 

The last card "2022" is always this year. I did this with the formula "=NOW()"

Each year the title should change to the next year.
But I dont know how to set the title for the previous year and the title for two years ago. 
Is there a formula, with which i can just say: "Give me this year minus 1 year ?

Thanks in advance. 
Best regards.

If you want a date you a year ago you can create the following measure:

Date a Year Ago = DATE(YEAR(TODAY())-1,MONTH(TODAY()), DAY(TODAY()))

Hi @Nanaki,

 

Try using the PREVIOUSYEAR() function along with the YEAR().

Here's the documentation: PREVIOUSYEAR function (DAX) - DAX | Microsoft Docs

 

I hope it helps

@Nanaki ,measure or column as per need

 

This Year = year(Today())

 

Next Year = year(Today()) +1

 

Last Year = year(Today()) -1

Thank you for your fast reply.
But I still get strangely 1905 for the last year. 

@Nanaki  Can you share screen shot of your date column and check which data type it is. 

Don't forget to give thumbs up and accept this as a solution if it helped you!!!

Please take a quick glance at newly created dashboards : Restaurant Management Dashboard , HR Analytics Report , Hotel Management Report, Sales Analysis Report , Fortune 500 Companies Analysis , Revenue Tracking Dashboard

In the first picture you can see the formula "today" with the today date.

And in the 2. picture with "year(today)" i get the year 1905.

Hi @Nanaki,

 

13-7-1905 is the date value of number 2021. You can see this e.g. in Excel by changing the format into Short Date of a cell containing 2021.

 

I can reproduce the behaviour you experience when I create a new column instead of a measure

Defintions:

  • Column Last Year = year(Today()) -1
  • Last Year = year(Today()) -1

Solution is then to create a measure with that definition.

But with that solution I wont get the year 2021 in a date format right? Only in a number format ? 

If you want a date you a year ago you can create the following measure:

Date a Year Ago = DATE(YEAR(TODAY())-1,MONTH(TODAY()), DAY(TODAY()))

Awesome, this worked. Thank you very much to all of you!

I dont have a column, I just have this formula. I created it manually as a measure and wanted to insert it into one card.
