Hi,

If I understood correctly, You want to calculate the amount for the first of the month - Amount for the first of the previous month.

For this purpose you could use the below code for creating the measure :

Hoist Diff =
 Var __FistOfMonthVal = CALCULATE(values(Sheet68[hoist]), STARTOFMONTH(Sheet68[Date]))
 Var __PreviousMonthVal = CALCULATE(sum(Sheet68[hoist]), DATEADD( STARTOFMONTH(Sheet68[Date]), -1, MONTH))
 var Result = __FistOfMonthVal - __PreviousMonthVal
 Return Result

Hi,

I am not sure about how your datamodel looks like, but if your filter context is Date level, please try using DATEADD DAX function in your measure.
