## MTD Previous month

Hello,

I have a MTD measure that goes as followed:

Quantity (base) MTD = IF (
MIN ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) <= CALCULATE ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date]), ALL ( 'Returns') ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Returns'[quantity (base)]), DATESMTD ( 'Calendar'[Date]) )
)

How could I turn this into MTD previous month?

Hello,

I've fixed the issue!

I used the following DAX measure:

Quantity (base) Last Month MTD = IF (
MIN ( 'Calendar'[Date] ) <= CALCULATE ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date]), ALL ( 'Returns') ),
CALCULATE ( SUM ( 'Returns'[quantity (base)]), DATESMTD (DATEADD('Calendar'[Date], -1, MONTH )
)))

To get the best of the time intelligence function. Make sure you have a date calendar and it has been marked as the date in model view. Also, join it with the date column of your fact/s. Refer :radacad sqlbi My Video Series Appreciate your Kudos.

Hello,

Thank you for the quick reply.

Unfortunately I get this error:

I removed the parenthesis at (dateadd('Calendar'[Date]

Last Month Quantity MTD = CALCULATE(SUM(Returns[quantity (base)]),DATESMTD(dateadd('Calendar'[Date],-1,month)))

The measure won't give an error.
However, then I won't get any data shown in my report.

I also got the same issue with the other measure that you posted:

Also tried to move the parenthesis at dateadd there but then I get a different error:
