Earlier Function not Working

Hi, 

 

The following function was working fine until I try to use it again this month. Do anyone experience the same or have any solution? I am trying to sum the volume by month but the Earlier() does not regsiter any column selection. 

 

Calculate (

                 Sum ( Table1.volume,
                 Filter( Table1,
                          Month ( Table1.date ) = Month ( Earlier ( Table1.date ))

                         )

                 )

 

Thank you so much,

Jeff

Hi, @Anonymous 

 

I have no problem testing this formula on my side. You can check if the columns of data involved in the formula have changed.

Sample data:

Column = Calculate (Sum ( 'Table'[Volume]),
        Filter('Table',
                    Month ('Table'[Date]) = Month(Earlier ('Table'[Date] ))))

There are other ways you can try.

Column 2 = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Volume]),
                     FILTER(ALL('Table'),
                            [Date].[Month]=EARLIER('Table'[Date].[Month])))
Month = MONTH([Date])
Column 4 = CALCULATE(SUM('Table'[Volume]),
                    FILTER(ALL('Table'),
                           [Month]=EARLIER('Table'[Month])))
