## Measure showing current month and previous month percentage rate

Hi,

Does anyone know of a measure that could be used to determine the percentage rate for the current month and that of the previous month? Below is a table showing the figures I expect to see with the appropriate dax measure. I have also included the dax measure which sadly hasn't worked and a link to the pbix file.

Current & Previous month percentage rate by category

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Hi @Shenee

There's no need for a "this month rate" measure.  When you use it in visuals, filter context will take care of calculating it for that month only.  LastMonthRate should be this:

``````LastMonth Rate =
CALCULATE(
[Rate],
PREVIOUSMONTH(dim_date[day_date])
)``````

And here's the results

Hope this helps!  🙂

Hi, @Shenee ;

You could create a measure.

``````LastMonth Rate2 =
CALCULATE([Rate],FILTER(ALLSELECTED('Query2'),[Category]=MAX('Query2'[Category])&&EOMONTH([ActivityDate],0)=EOMONTH(MAX('Query2'[ActivityDate]),-1)))``````

The final show:

Thank you so much and your suggestion worked as it relates to determining LastMonthRate. Could the measure be amended to calculate the CurrentMonthRate? Ideally, I need a measure for Current Month Rate as well. Many thanks for your help once again.

I have just amended the measure you created for LastMonthRate and been able to create CurrentMonthRate successfully (see dax measure below and a table with the results I expected). Many thanks once again for your help with this.

Hi @Shenee

Do you have a date table and is it marked appropriately?  If so this would be very easy using Time Intelligence.  Current month would be however you are calculating it now.  Prior month would be

``````CALCULATE(
[Rate],
PREVIOUSMONTH(DateTable[Date])
)``````

Hope this helps!

I have got a date table and did create a measure similar to the one you proposed to determine previous month's percentage rate but it didn't work!

@Shenee can you provide a sample pbix file?
