Find the variance % of current and previous year sales based on selection of ytd,mtd and dates

Hi team,

 

How can i create a measure which shows % variance of sales of current year and previous year.

the variance should work with below slicer like Today,MTD,YTD and also with date slicer like Year,Month and Day.

below vPY is the variance in sales.I want this measure to be filtered by all the slicers.

Hi @nj17 

 

Typically the solution would look like:

PY Delta % =

var var_CY_value = [your base measure]

var var_PY_Value=
   CALCULATE(
      [your base measure],
      DATEADD(Date_Table[Date Column],-1,MONTH)
   )

RETURN
DIVIDE(var_CY_value,var_PY_Value) - 1

 

Now it depends on your base measure as well as on your data model whether and how it works with the slicers and settings you mentioned.

 

Best regards

Michael

Hi @nj17,

 

Due to security reasons in general I dont download files. I hope for your understanding.

 

Can you please provide a picture of the data model as well as the current measure definitions you use? Then it should be quickly solvable.

 

Best regards

Michael

Hi @Mikelytics

Slicer I created for MTD,YTD and Daily

 

MTD/YTD Selection =

 VAR TodayDate = TODAY()

VAR Daily = TODAY() - 1

 VAR YearStart = CALCULATE(STARTOFYEAR('FactSale'[transaction date]),YEAR('FactSale'[transaction date]) = YEAR(TodayDate))

VAR MonthStart = CALCULATE(STARTOFMONTH('FactSale'[transaction date]),YEAR('FactSale'[transaction date]) = YEAR(TodayDate),MONTH('FactSale'[transaction date]) = MONTH(TodayDate))

VAR Result =

UNION (

  ADDCOLUMNS (

        CALENDAR(Daily,TodayDate),

"Selection","Daily"

),

ADDCOLUMNS (

        CALENDAR(MonthStart,TodayDate),

"Selection","MTD"

),

ADDCOLUMNS (

        CALENDAR(YearStart,TodayDate),

"Selection","YTD"

)

)

RETURN

Result
 
FactSale have below values

Data model

Measures I created

Sales = sum(FactSale[Amount])
Sales Amount PY = CALCULATE(SUM('FactSale'[Amount]),SAMEPERIODLASTYEAR('Calendar'[Date]))
Sales Amount vPY = IFERROR(CALCULATE(IF([Sales Amount PY]=0,"-",  SUM('FactSale'[Amount]) -[Sales Amount PY])/[Sales Amount PY]),"-")
