M Code - find prior fiscal period (even if in prior fiscal year)

Hello,

 

I've managed to create this MCode to filter by the previous fiscal period. Please can someone point me in the right direction to write it so that is can cope with looking back to the prievious fiscal year? (e.g. if it is fiscal period 1 now, then it should filter by period 12, and the preiovius fiscal year ("Year - 1").

 

FilteredFYPeriod = Table.SelectRows(Debt_, each [FY] = Year and [Period]=Period - 1 ),

 

Thank you for any help,

Hi, @PowerWhy 

You can try the following M code:

let
Source = PowerPlatform.Dataflows([]),
Workspaces = Source{[Id="Workspaces"]}[Data],
Workspace_to_use = Workspaces{[workspaceId=Workspace_ID]}[Data],
Dataflow_to_use = Workspace_to_use{[dataflowId=Dataflow_ID]}[Data],
Debt_ = Dataflow_to_use{[entity="Debt",version=""]}[Data],
FilteredFYPeriod = Table.SelectRows(Debt_,
    each if Period = 1
    then [FY] = Year - 1 and [Period] = 12 else
    [FY] = Year and [Period] = Period - 1
)
in
FilteredFYPeriod

Hope this helps you.

Ahh sorry I'm switching between too many programming languages! 🙂 - I think this is the fix?:

 

let
Source = PowerPlatform.Dataflows([]),
Workspaces = Source{[Id="Workspaces"]}[Data],
Workspace_to_use = Workspaces{[workspaceId=Workspace_ID]}[Data],
Dataflow_to_use = Workspace_to_use{[dataflowId=Dataflow_ID]}[Data],
Debt_ = Dataflow_to_use{[entity="Debt",version=""]}[Data],
FilteredFYPeriod = Table.SelectRows(Debt_,
  if Period = 1 then
    each [FY] = Year - 1 and [Period] = 12 else
    each [FY] = Year and [Period] = Period - 1
)
in
FilteredFYPeriod

Thank you @v-jianpeng-msft I'm afraid I'm not seeing how to apply that to my situation. Please could you tell me how to adjust the formula below to achieve the same?

let
Source = PowerPlatform.Dataflows([]),
Workspaces = Source{[Id="Workspaces"]}[Data],
Workspace_to_use = Workspaces{[workspaceId=Workspace_ID]}[Data],
Dataflow_to_use = Workspace_to_use{[dataflowId=Weekly_Dataflow_ID]}[Data],
Debt_ = Dataflow_to_use{[entity="Debt",version=""]}[Data],
FilteredFYPeriod = Table.SelectRows(Debt_,
  if(Period = 1,
    each [FY] = Year - 1 and [Period] = 12,
    each [FY] = Year and [Period] = Period - 1
  )
)
in
FilteredFYPeriod

 

Thank you,

Hi, @PowerWhy 

You can try the following M code, please adjust according to your table:

let
     Source = YourTable, // Replace with your data table name
     currentPeriod = YourTable[Period], // Replace with your "Period" column name
     currentYear = Date.Year(DateTime.LocalNow()),
     previousYear = currentYear - 1,
     FilteredRows = Table.SelectRows(Source, each [Period] = 12 or [Period] = currentPeriod or [Period] = previousYear)
in
     FilteredRows

 I created the following Sample data:

I create a new blank query and use the M code above:

vjianpengmsft_1-1709097490822.png

The query results are as follows:
