## Last week calculation

Hi all,

I have a problem with calculating the result of last week.
A collegue of mine wrote the dax stated below, and it worked. Unfortunately not when we started the new year.
Then it looks for week 0 (week 1 minus 1), and it obviously can't find it.
My idea would be that I need to adjust this VAR:
VAR MaxWeekNumber = CALCULATE(MAX(Datetabel[Weeknr])-1, ALL(Datetabel))

In this VAR I need to calculate the max weeknr of last year, so for example:
MAX(Datetabel[Weeknr]) where YEAR(today())-1

But how can I write this in DAX??
I hope everything is clear and someone can help me out on this.

Base internet - last week =
VAR CurrentWeek = SELECTEDVALUE(Datetabel[Weeknr])
VAR CurrentYear = SELECTEDVALUE(Datetabel[Year])
VAR MaxWeekNumber = CALCULATE(MAX(Datetabel[Weeknr])-1, ALL(Datetabel))
RETURN

SUMX(
FILTER( ALL(Datetabel),
IF( CurrentWeek = 1,
Datetabel[Weeknr] = MaxWeekNumber && Datetabel[Year] = CurrentYear - 1,
Datetabel[Weeknr] = CurrentWeek - 1 && Datetabel[Year] = CurrentYear )),
[Base internet - week]
)

@Sander1401 I would recommend implementing something like Sequential and then this is trivial. Can also do something similar in PQ. https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Quick-Measures-Gallery/Sequential/m-p/380231#M116

@Sander1401 Make sure you are using the right return type for WEEKNUM:

@Greg_DecklerGood suggestion, thanks for that. I only are having troubles with the iso weeks/year. So the first 2 days of 2022 (1 january and 2 january 2022) are in Iso week 52-2021. But unfortunately the column calculation doesn't recognize this...
How can I solve this? Do you have an idea?
