## Getting Last 6 Month Sales

I want to get the last 6 months sales ending on the last day of last month from the current date. Following code is what I use. Is there any better suggestion to improve this?

``````6M pri sales value =
CALCULATE (
SUM ( FactPrimarySales[NetValue] ),
DATESINPERIOD (
DimDate[Date],
CALCULATE (
LASTDATE ( DimDate[Date] ),
DimDate[MonthNo]
= MONTH ( TODAY () ) - 1,
DimDate[Year] = YEAR ( TODAY () )
),
-6,
MONTH
)
)``````

@Anonymous , Try a measure like this with help from date table

Rolling 6 = CALCULATE(sum(Sales[Sales Amount]),DATESINPERIOD('Date'[Date ],eomonth(MAX('Date'[Date ]),-1),-6,MONTH))

Hi,

If today is December 25, 2020, then i assume that "last day of last month from the current date" should mean 6 months ended November 30, 2020.  If my assumption is correct, then try this measure:

=calculate(sum(Sales[Sales Amount]),datesbetween(calendar[date],EDATE(EOMONTH(today(),-1)+1,-6),EOMONTH(today(),-1)))

Hope this helps.
