Measure does not work when applied as calculated column formula

Hi,

I have a simple table :

I need to add a column that contains sales of the previous year. I can easily calculate it with a measure like this:

 

Amount previous year = 
CALCULATE( sum ( tSales[Sales] ), 
                FILTER( ALL(tSales), tSales[Year] = MAX( tSales[Year])  - 1 ) 
) 

 

 

The result is this:

However when I try to put this formula into a calculated column, it produces blank column. Why is it not working in calculated column?

@gvg try this for calculated column

 

Prev Year = 
VAR __prevYear = Sales[Year] - 1 
RETURN
CALCULATE ( SUM ( Sales[Amount] ), ALL ( Sales ), Sales[Year] = __prevYear )

Yep, that works. Than you. Why it works with a variable and not working with my measure?
