## Measure for LY Sales for Range of Dates

HI there,

I have a measure to calculate the sales for a range of dates taken from a slicer:

Sales for Date Range = CALCULATE(SUM(Sales[NetTotal]), FILTER(Sales, AND(Sales[CheckDate].[Date] <= MAX('Calendar'[Date]), Sales[CheckDate].[Date] >= MIN('Calendar'[Date])) ))

What I am trying to figure out is how to create a measure for the same period LY.  My work has the need to pull reports for all different kinds of date ranges and compare them to the same period last year, so my "Today", "MTD", "YTD", "LY  MTD", "LY YTD" measures are not quite cutting it, and I'm having difficulty with phrasing the MIN/MAX dates to go back a year.

Any suggestions most appreciated!

You can try to use below formula to achieve your requirement if it suitable for your requirement:

```MTD = CALCULATE(SUM('Fact'[Amount]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Fact'),[Date]<=MAX('Fact'[Date])),VALUES('Calendar'[Date].[MonthNo]),VALUES('Calendar'[Date].[Year]))

YTD = CALCULATE(SUM('Fact'[Amount]),FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Fact'),[Date]<=MAX('Fact'[Date])),VALUES('Calendar'[Date].[Year]))
